The Melbourne Branch invites you to hear Professor Ross Large AO present: “Relationship Between oxygenation and Ore Deposit Cycles Through Earth History.”
Professor Large will discuss research at Centre for Ore Deposit and Exploration Science (CODES) that indicates oxygen in the atmosphere has varied greatly over geological time, far more than previously thought. This has major implications on the timing, extent and location of key mineralisation events around the world and has shown major correlations with the evolution of life and with times of accumulation of giant deposits of copper and lead-zinc-silver on the ocean floor.
Ross Large is an Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Geology at the University of Tasmania and is internationally renowned in Ore Deposit Geology. Professor Large established the Centre for Ore Deposit and Exploration Science (CODES). Under his leadership CODES grew to become recognized as one of the top industry collaborative ore deposit research centres in the world. Professor Large has published over 130 scientific papers and is internationally recognised for his research on the genesis of ore deposits and relationships to Earth evolution. As lead scientist for a UTAS team, Professor Large and team won the 2016 Eureka prize for interdisciplinary research.
