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
