IMEx Consulting in conjunction with the AIG is conducting a one-day Exploration Geochemistry workshop focusing on Interactive Data Analysis

Applied Exploration Geochemistry

“The Value in the Shallow”

 

Date

Thursday 5th December 2019


 

Venue

Ascot Kayak Club,
Garvey Park, Fauntleroy St, Ascot WA


 
Multi-element analysis of geochemical samples is now common practice in mineral exploration. Voluminous data is being generated but potentially is not fully utilised by project geoscientists.
Traditional anomaly definition of geochemical data has tended to focus on the highest numbers in selected target elements. However, in many circumstances the highest numbers may not be the most significant given the geological context.
This workshop focuses on more informative techniques of viewing and visualising geochemical data. This style of targeting focuses on placing all of the geochemical data into a richer geological context.
This is a “hands-on” workshop illustrating & applying these techniques. The workshop is directed to all geoscientists who want to extract more from their data.
Mark Arundell has over 30 years’ experience in exploration geology and in the use of multi-element geochemistry to find ore deposits.


 

Workshop Program

The workshop focusses on applying exploration geochemistry data to the discovery of ore bodies.

This workshop will teach geoscientists alternative and more informative techniques of viewing and visualising their geochemical data. The focus of this style of targeting is placing the whole geochemical data into the geological context.

This workshop will also enable geoscientists to discover new targets in old data!


 

Content

The workshop will be a mixture of lectures (theory) & practical sessions/exercises using ioGAS in a classroom setting.
Timetable is very, very flexible and dependent on how long participants want to spend on each exercise.
In the final session, participants are encouraged to work on their own data. Mark will assist with interpretation of the data in a one on one setting.
Participants will receive access to a Dropbox site to download all presentations and data exercises.


 

Resume

Mark worked for RGC for ten years as a Mine Geologist in NT and Tasmania and as an Exploration Geologist in WA and East Australia. He then worked for North for five years at Northparkes and Lake Cowal then Yakabindie Ni in WA + IOCG projects in SA. This was followed by nine years with Rio Tinto working on Cu, iron ore, uranium, Ni, IOCG, potash, talc, and trona. Then followed a couple of years working in the Junior sector floating two companies Oakland Resources + Highfield Resources and now he’s consulting as a geologist + geochemist. Currently, most of his work involves applying geochemistry in the search for porphyry Cu-Au mineralisation.
