Integrated Exploration Targeting

Drawing on the breadth of experience and talent within the CET, we can design integrated research programmes across disciplines and commodity specialisation to address practical problems in exploration targeting at any scale - from greenfields strategy to ore shoot characterisation and prediction. Our specialist teams work together to provide practical solutions to meet the challenges facing the modern exploration industry.

Projects can be pursued across a range of commodities in response to industry demand and strategic alignment with ongoing research streams at the Centre. Research outcomes and expertise are combined to provide:

  • comprehensive understanding of the 4D evolution of host terrains,

  • the position of the respective mineral systems within this framework,

  • the extraction of mappable criteria that can be applied to exploration strategies within a business risk framework at all scales, and

  • the development of tools and techniques to more effectively target major mineral deposits.

    The ongoing search for Hadean crust on Earth

    The familiar concentric layer cake structure of the Earth depicted in textbooks formed within a few hundred million years of the accretion of the planet. This is when the metallic core segregated, the oceans condensed, the atmosphere outgassed and the first rocky crust formed....

    THIS week Allan Trench acts as unofficial messenger for the ground-breaking UNCOVER initiative – seeking to unlock the hidden mineral wealth across the unexplored frontiers of Australia. Strictly Boardroom suspects that many readers would have already heard of the UNCOVER initiative, an emerging collaborative effort being championed across industry, state and federal geoscience organisations and by universities alike. For those readers reading of UNCOVER for the first time, the concept owes its origin to a Theo Murphy Think Tank* convened by the Australian Academy of Science.
