Julien Perret completed his Ph.D in 2021 between the GeoRessources laboratory, University of Lorraine, Nancy, France, and Arethuse Geology, a mineral exploration company, Aix-en-Provence, France. His previous research work focused on the integration of gold ore deposits in their tectono-metamorphic context at every scale, following a multi-scale, multi-method mineral system approach. To do so, Julien conducted collaborative work with both academic and industrial partners in order to collect and interpret field observations (e.g., mapping, core logging) in the Neoproterozoic Nubian shield together with lab analyses (micro-petrographical-structural study, whole-rock and in situ mineral geochemistry, geochronology and isotopy). It eventually allows to discuss the relationships between the Gondwana supercontinent cycle, gold crustal fertility, structural control on mineralisation and ore-forming processes up to the micrometric scale.
Julien joined the CET in March 2023 and works as a Research Assistant for the fourth stage of the West African eXploration Initiative (WAXI4), aiming at applying and improving a similar multi-scale, multi-method approach.
