Marija currently works as an exploration geologist with FMG and recently completed her PhD at the University of Adelaide using multivariate statistical analysis of trace elements in iron-oxides to constrain the spatial and temporal evolution of IOCG and BIF-hosted ore deposits in South Australia.
Whole-rock and in-situ minerals geochemical data is routinely collected for various applications in mining, minerals exploration and science. With the ever-increasing amounts of data, its complexity and size, the application of quantitative and reproducible methods, such as statistical analysis, becomes necessary in order to extract the maximum information from these multi-element datasets. This talk will walk you through some of the most utilised statistical methods in geochemistry and gives a few examples and case studies demonstrating the benefits of the quantitative approach to geochemical data.
