This course is intended for geologists working in the minerals sector, geological surveys, research organizations and students, to learn and/or improve their ioGAS skills, no matter their level of experience.

Until you’ve used ioGAS, you won’t understand how effective it is for optimising workflows, teaching you new geochemical, geostatistical and structural skills, and generally making your life easier and more productive through its cleverly engineered interface.


  • Data suitability and QAQC of data, types of geochemical (and other) data suitable for use in ioGAS
  • Principles of the use of geochemistry in primary (sedimentary, igneous) and secondary (metamorphic, hydrothermal) environments, focussed on how to subsequently solve with ioGAS
  • Data import, using ‘Data Doctor’, how to get up and running
  • Basic tools of data classification
  • Functionality of embedded diagrams
  • Using published mineral and rock compositions to help understand your system
  • Distinguishing protolith variability from alteration, metamorphism and veining
  • Intermediate to advanced data classification, geostatistics in ioGAS
  • Visualization in ioGAS – 2D, 3D, down-hole, maps, grids
  • Speaking with other systems – export styles for GIS and 3D packages and the ioGAS/Leapfrog link
  • Linking other datasets within and around ioGAS – structural data cleanup, alpha/beta to dip/dir conversion, attributing structure data with geochemistry and vice versa, linking to down hole/3D and mapped surface data (e.g. spectral, geophysics), extracting vein abundance and identifying replacement trends
  • Applying all the above to real datasets that you will also work on between the daily sessions
  • Developing time-saving workflows in ioGAS
