Intrusion-hosted Ni-Ci-PGE potential

This technical workshop will showcase the datasets, approach and results of a continental-scale study of Australia’s potential for intrusion-hosted nickel-copperplatinum-group element (Ni-Cu-PGE) ore deposits.

The results of the Geoscience Australia study highlight known mineralised provinces, their extensions under cover, and several greenfields regions representing new ‘search spaces’ for possible Ni-Cu-PGE mineralisation.

The GIS-based mapping of prospectivity was based on the mineral systems concept, and integrates a wide range of continental datasets including:

  • Novel views of seismic and other geophysical and isotopic data (e.g. Nd) to map crustal and mantle architecture
  • a new map dataset of mafic-ultramafic magmatic events including Proterozoic Large Igneous Provinces
  • geochemical discriminants linked to the spatial?temporal distribution of possible host rocks.

This workshop will be of interest to mineral exploration, government and academic geoscientists seeking information not only on Ni-Cu-PGE mineral systems but also on new continental-scale datasets and how these may be used in broad-scale exploration area selection.

A report on the study and accompanying digital spatial data are available at: http://www.ga.gov.au/metadata-gateway/metadata/record/83884
