The timescales of orogenesis and metallogenesis: An example from the Southwest Pacific

Published on September 2nd, 2019

CSA Global Consultant, Dr Robert Holm will present at the upcoming Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG) MEGWA Technical Talk on ‘The timescales of orogenesis and metallogenesis: An example from the Southwest Pacific’ on Wednesday 18 September 2019 at the Irish Club in Subiaco, Western Australia.


Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands reside in a complex tectonic junction between the Australian continent, the Southwest Pacific, and Southeast Asia. This region is among the most prospective areas for porphyry and epithermal mineral deposits, however, resolving the plate tectonic evolution and ultimately the mineral potential of this region to date has proven difficult due to the plethora of contradicting geologic models. In this talk Rob will discuss the tectonic evolution and metallogenesis of this region, and how understanding the diverse and discrete geodynamic settings for mineralisation in such settings can provide insights into geologic processes in ancient orogens.
