Mark Arundell (IMEx Consulting) has offered a 1 day workshop on the 24th – Applied Exploration Geochemistry - "The Fallacy of Deep"

Workshop limited to 10 participants


Multi-element analysis of geochemical samples is now common practice in mineral exploration. Voluminous data is being generated but potentially is not fully utilised by project geoscientists.

Traditional anomaly definition of geochemical data has tended to focus on the highest numbers in selected target elements. However, in many circumstances the highest numbers may not be the most significant given the geological context.

This workshop focusses on more informative techniques of viewing and visualising geochemical data. This style of targeting focuses on placing all of the geochemical data into a richer geological context.

This is a "hands-on" workshop illustrating & applying these techniques. The workshop is directed to all geoscientists who want to extract more from their data.

The workshop focusses on applying exploration geochemistry data to the discovery of ore bodies.

The principles of the techniques will be fully explained and illustrated using actual exploration examples. An immediate outcome of applying these techniques is fewer, more robust anomalies/targets are generated enhancing exploration efficiency and effectiveness.

Mark Arundell has over 30 years’ experience in exploration geology and in the use of multi-element geochemistry to find ore deposits

All participants will need to provide a laptop computer & have ioGAS preloaded (Demo version OK).
