Geophysics for the mineral exploration geoscientist (Day two)

The future of mineral exploration is searching for deposits undercover and geophysics will play an increasingly important role in exploration success.

Based on the award-winning book, this innovative training course uses applied learning techniques and real-world mineral exploration datasets to train participants in the key principles of interpreting geophysical data, but without the need for complex mathematics and physics.

The course:
• Is designed for industry and government geoscientists seeking to understand how to use geophysical datasets to explore and to map.
• Is presented by an experienced mineral geophysicist and university educator
• Has been run in-house and at conferences around the world
• Comprises integrated lectures and practical exercises

Course content:
Participants are taught the general principles underlying the acquisition and processing of all types of geophysical data. The interpretation of gravity and magnetic data is covered in detail.

A central theme is the extraction of reliable geological information from geophysical datasets. Participants are taught how to recognise noise and artefacts within geophysical datasets. Also, which aspects of a geophysical dataset are most reliable.

On completing the course participants will have:
• Capability in best-practise geophysical interpretation
• Ability to link the geophysical responses to the local geology
• Understanding of the capabilities and limitations of various geophysical data types
• Ability to solve exploration challenges with geophysical datasets
• Capacity to choose the appropriate methods for your particular needs
• Understanding of how to assess someone else’s geophysical interpretation
