Epithermal Au-Ag and Porphyry Cu-Au Exploration
Course Leaders: Greg Corbett and Stuart Hayward
Tuesday 14 – Thursday 16 May 2019
Chatswood Club, 11 Help Chatswood (5 mins walk from Chatswood train station)
Practical exercise – W B Clarke Geoscience Centre, Londonderry
May 14 & 15, Chatswood Club, 11 Help Chatswood (5 mins walk from Chatswood train station) lunch, morning and afternoon teas provided. Two days of PowerPoint lectures focus upon mineral exploration for epithermal and porphyry ore deposits derived from Dr Corbett’s 40 years field experience, including earlier short courses provided with the late Terry Leach from the early 1990’s. Exploration and mining examples from over 40 countries are used to delineate the characteristics of different epithermal and porphyry ore types, and controls to mineralisation, using tools such as alteration, structure and breccias. A final section considers geological features recognised in exploration marginal to ore bodies. Participants will be provided with a current draft of the new short course notes. Drafts of the first few chapters are available at: http://corbettgeology.com/Publications/
May 16 – A practical exercise held at the W B Clarke Geoscience Centre, Londonderry, uses diamond drill core referred to in the lectures (above) and a set of teaching specimens to provide hands on training in ore and alteration mineralogy and the use of geological models. Greg is helped by and Stuart Hayward, who has over 30 years experience in epithermal-porphyry ore deposit exploration and mining. Return bus from Chatswood and lunch provided.
