The Metallogenesis, Tectonics & Surface Evolution of the West African Craton

Dates: 25 – 25 May, 2015

This conference will highlight the outcomes of the recently completed AMIRA International Project P934A West African Exploration Initiative Stage 2 (WAXI) as well as presenting research by key contributors working across the West African Craton (WAC). The overall aim of WAXI is to enhance the exploration potential of the West African Craton through an integrated program of research and data gathering into its “anatomy’, and to augment the capacity of local institutions to undertake this form of work.

Geological Survey (GSWA) Open Day 2015

Dates: 27 – 27 Feb, 2015 | Location: Location Cnr Marine Tce and Essex St, Fremantle

The Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA) will hold its annual Open Day on 27 February 2015. This is a great opportunity to hear presentations on the latest results from GSWA’s geoscience programs, including collaborative research with CSIRO and the Centre for Exploration Targeting (CET). Activities and results of the Exploration Incentive Scheme (EIS) are outlined including the launch of Round 11 of the Government Co-funded Exploration Drilling program. Throughout the day there will be geological presentations, an extensive poster display, and demonstrations of online systems including the new WAMEX

Geology from Geophysics Symposium

Dates: 18 – 18 Feb, 2015

With exploration increasingly taking place in areas with poor outcrop or under significant cover the need for explorationists to obtain geological information from geophysical data has never been greater. Intended for geoscientists working in the minerals industry, this 1-day symposium brings together industry and academic geoscientists who are world leaders in the fields of practical geophysical data interpretation and integration of geoscientific datasets for mineral exploration applications.

Saying Goodbye to a 2D Earth

Dates: 02 – 07 Aug, 2015

BACKGROUND Fundamental questions remain as to how to integrate geophysical and geological datasets with prior knowledge into testable, robust predictions of the 3D world beneath our feet. Although commercial systems provide adequate solutions for some specific scenarios, the ability to produce testable, reproducible models for which model uncertainties are well contrained by all the geological and geophysical observations remain a goal, not a reality. In this conference a strong emphasis will be placed on discussing future methods for characterising, visualising and reducing model uncertainty, as this is a particular weakness of current methodologies, and a necessary step in providing predictions with error estimates, a fundamental requirement of all scientific endeavour. The invited speakers are drawn from academia, geological surveys and the energy and minerals industry, as all three groups have been instrumental in developing the existing systems, and are pushing the scientific frontiers of this discipline. This conference will bring together geophysicists and geologists working at different scales, using customised and commercial technologies and workflows, and working in different tectonic settings, to stimulate discussions between groups that do not often interact.
