Micro-credentials in 'Advanced Structural Geology' and 'Geophysical Exploration: Gravity and Magnetics'

Aug 05, 2020

Geophysical Exploration: Gravity and Magnetics

This micro-credential focuses on gravity and magnetic methods as the two most commonly used geophysical methods in mineral exploration. As mineral exploration increasingly seeks deep targets under thick cover, geophysics is expected to play a greater role in exploration. The micro-credential provides the opportunity for participants to learn to work with geophysical data in a learning scenario that mimics how they are used in the work place.

Delivery mode: Onsite (F2F)
Start date: Mid-November
Duration: One week intensive followed by completion of practical work
Effort: 75 hours
Cost: $990 inc. GST
Presented by Mike Dentith

What you'll learn

Underpinning principles of geophysical methods including strengths and limitations.

Gain skills in data acquisition design, processing and interpretation.

Undertake an integrated gravity-magnetic interpretation exercise.

Why study this course?

Students are able to demonstrate

  • Knowledge of the principles, strengths and limitations of these geophysical methods
  • Practical skills in data acquisition design, processing, interpretation, and data integration, and
  • Effective communication of scientific results.

Recommended prior knowledge

Bachelors degree in Geology or Geophysics (or equivalent) or direct work experience in the resources industries.

How does it work?

Participants will work on online quizzes, practical exercises and reports.

What's next after this course?

Future study
Pathway to completion of a master's degree in Geoscience or Ore Deposit Geology at UWA.

Advanced Structural Geology

This micro-credential aims to provide professional geologists with the opportunity to build upon their existing knowledge and skills in structural geology and to be able to expand their understanding of structural analysis applied to ore deposits. It is ideal for industry geologists who are looking to develop more advanced skills of relevance to their current or future employment.

Delivery mode: Onsite (F2F)
Start date: October
Duration: One week intensive followed by completion of practical work
Effort: 75 hours
Cost: $990 inc. GST
Presented by Nico Thebaud

What you'll learn

Develop your knowledge of important concepts in structural geology.

Gain practical skills in structural analysis that apply these concepts to mineral deposits.

Why study this course?

Students are able to demonstrate

  • Knowledge of important concepts in structural geology directly applicable to mineral deposits, and
  • Practical skills in applying these concepts to mineral deposits.

Recommended prior knowledge

Bachelor's degree in Geology or Geophysics (or equivalent) or direct work experience in relevant roles in the resources industries.

How does it work?

Participants will work on practical exercises and assignments.
