Structural geology is an important factor in the formation and post-mineralization modification of both orogenic gold and VMS deposit. Structural geology has an impact at all scales, from regional patterns to individual ore bodies. Understanding the structural geology of your project provides a foundation for successful exploration.

This short course will equip you with the tools and confidence to apply structural geology effectively at and add value to your projects, from regional grassroots exploration to mine-scale models. It will examine the key structural controls and tools that can be used in both orogenic gold and VMS exploration, highlighting the similarities and contrasts between working in each deposit type. A key aspect will be reviewing the interplay between the distribution of stratigraphy, structures, and mineralisation, and the impacts of post-mineralisation deformation on both.

The course will:

  • Be practical and highly interactive
  • Be presented by experienced practitioners who know how to simplify the key messages and provide you with a workable, practical toolkit for applying structural geology to all stages of exploration
  • Comprise alternating session of practical exercises, case studies, and brief presentations all with real-world tools that participants can easily learn and apply to their exploration properties
  • The course notes will serve as an ongoing reference manual for participants.
