This two day course provides a state-of-the-art overview of geophysical exploration methods without recourse to complex mathematical descriptions. It includes descriptions of all the main geophysical methods used in mineral exploration, including gravity, magnetic, electrical, electromagnetic methods. Course participants are guided through the basic physical phenomena, the acquisition and processing of geophysical data, to the creation of subsurface models and their geological interpretation.
The course will target practising geoscientists, most likely to be in first ten years of practice, who have had limited exposure to formal education in the application of exploration geophysics, and are keen to build their understanding of this important field of modern mineral discovery technologies in the challenging terrains of Australia, especially where thick sedimentary cover precludes systematic geological mapping and geochemical sampling.
The course will be held in The Barbarian Room, Level 3, The Rugby Club, Rugby Place, off 31 Pitt Street, Sydney, 16-17 February, 2016.
