Join CSA Global Principal Geologist, Dr Carl Brauhart as he returns post COVID to deliver ‘A Better Understanding of Exploration Geochemistry‘ on Wednesay, October 21 and Tuesday, October 27, 2020
This one-day course is designed for moderately to highly experienced exploration geologists who wish to extend their skills in geochemistry.
Upon completion of this course, participants will have a solid grounding in ten important skills in Exploration Geochemistry.
You will be able to:
- Validate data, and recognise the limitations of that data.
- Use X-Y plots to explore data, validate results of more advanced investigations and link to spatially defined anomalies.
- Identify element associations in your data using Principal Component Analysis.
- Recognise that element associations are scale dependent.
- Break false correlations in your data using Centred Log Ratios.
- Understand the advantages of using probability plots over histograms.
- Construct a log additive index that highlights an anomalous metal association.
- Use alteration geochemistry to better understand the mineralogy of a hydrothermal alteration system.
- Discriminate different rock types using immobile element ratios.
- Apply immobile-incompatible element ratios to define separate magma series (or sediment packages).
ABOUT OUR PRESENTER
DR CARL BRAUHART
Carl is an exploration geologist with over 25 years experience in gold and base-metal exploration, spending much of that time working in frontier areas of Western Australia on grassroots projects. He has a particular interest in exploration and ore deposit geochemistry, and a passion for field work, particularly mapping. Carl has maintained a close association with the Centre for Exploration Targeting at the University of Western Australia where he is the lead researcher on the OSNACA Project (an ore deposit geochemistry research effort). During his time at CSA Global, Carl has undertaken fieldwork across Australia, Sudan and Uganda and has carried out major geochemical investigations for many mining clients on gold, base-metal and industrial mineral projects globally.
