This project aims to improve our understanding of how extremely high-grade gold occurrences form by deciphering the processes associated to metal transport and accumulation within the Earth’s crust. This project expects to generate new knowledge in the area of gold geochemistry using novel experimental programs, interdisciplinary approaches and by utilising advanced technologies. Expected outcomes of this project include reducing the unpredictability of high-grade gold occurrences and strengthening existing alliances with industry partners. This project should benefit the mineral industry partners by helping to discover high grade gold resources which is of great benefit to Australia.
