Dr Dennis Arne, Telemark Geoscience

This comprehensive 3-module professional development course (presented as 6 x 3.5 hr teaching days) is designed for geology graduate students and mineral exploration professionals looking for continuing professional development in exploration and applied geochemistry. Module 1 of the course would also be suitable for database professionals wishing to know more about the collection of geochemical data and the assessment of its quality, as well as for more seasoned geologists wishing to review recent advances in the collection, analysis, QA/QC and management of data.

The course involves Powerpoint lectures to introduce concepts but will be interspersed with short practical exercises to reinforce some of the strategies and methods. Examples will be drawn from publicly available data sources from Canada, Australia and Sudan, with detailed data sets from the central Victorian goldfields used for data integration exercises. The aim of the complete 3-day short course series is to equip the participants to confidently design, implement and interpret diverse data sets from geochemical exploration programs while ensuring “fit for purpose” data quality and data management.

Module 1: Data Acquisition, Quality Assessment and Management
Module 2: Exploratory Data Analysis using ioGAS
Module 3: Integration of Geochemical, Mineralogical & Geological Data
