Date(s) - Monday, 30/03/2020 - Wednesday, 01/04/2020
The South Australian Branch of the AIG presents:
Colin Conor and Graham Teale
Monday 30th March – Wednesday 1st April 2020
(Wednesday 1st April – viewing core and samples at the S.A. Core Library facility)
Colin Conor currently has the position of Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of South Australia. He has 50 years of geological experience derived from geological survey and industry, with many of those years spent working on the geology of the Olympic IOCG Domain (including Olympic Dam and the Wallaroo-Moonta region), and also equivalent prospective rocks to the east in the Curnamona Province.
Graham Teale has over 40 years experience as a mineral exploration, mining and research geologist. He is currently carrying out research with Prof. Paul Spry of Iowa State University on the world class Broken Hill Deposit. He has worked on metamorphosed base metal mineralisation throughout Australia and in Africa, North America, India and Scandinavia. He has presented workshops on primary litho-geochemistry, low sulphur zinc mineralisation and IOCG mineralisation.
Field traverses and site visits will include:
- Field traverse along the coast adjacent to the Hillside Deposit.
- Core viewing at the the Hillside deposit site. View the various skarn-types and compare with unaltered lithotypes.
- Traverses along the coast north of Wallaroo to view granite phases of the Hiltaba Suite syn-orogenic Tickera Granite complex, and their relationships to the host Wallaroo Group.
- Visit the Ooralaw Mine from which is extracted brightly coloured scapolite-amphiboleepidote-magnetite skarn, this being marketed as Harlequin Stone. Also a nearby site that demonstrates the timing of alteration relative to the complex structural history.
- Visit mines sites of the historic Wallaroo-Moonta Mines, e.g. the New Cornwall, Kurilla and Poona mines.
- Site discussions on the Moonta and Wallaroo mineralisation styles that involve very different hosts and very different tectonic regimes.
