A practical two day workshop for mineral explorers
2-3 December 2019
South Australia Drill Core Reference Library
Complemented Geological Survey of South Australia Discovery Day 2019 on Thursday 28 November.
South Australia hosts some of the world’s most significant iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposits. Since the discovery of Olympic Dam, IOCG deposits have been recognised elsewhere in the Gawler Craton and in a number of terranes world-wide.
The workshop, facilitated by the Geological Survey of South Australia (GSSA), discussed current understanding of iron oxide-copper-gold mineral systems, and brought together local and international examples:
- Alteration facies and their application to mapping the mineral system
- Lithospheric to deposit scale footprints
- Key deposit characteristics
It also included a drill core display covering the range of South Australia’s IOCG deposits, with a major showcase of drill core from Olympic Dam.
