Annual Conference 2013

Welcome and Overview

We invite you to uncover the future at the DET CRC’s third Annual Conference at Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills.  This Conference provides the opportunity to learn of the progress made by CRC projects after approximately 3 years of research.  It is already clear that the results of DET CRC research will transform the workflow of mineral exploration.  The Conference is also an opportunity for Participants, Affiliates and Researchers to learn about and influence the future plans of the CRC.

One of the Adelaide Hills’ most loved towns, Hahndorf is Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement. Hahndorf is a feast for the senses, with its German architecture featuring many Fachwerk buildings, quaint shopping experiences, along with a new mix of fine dining, exciting and chic businesses and a broad range of accommodation choices, all blended between the 100 year old elm and plane trees which line the main street. There are also several good winery cellar doors in the area such as Nepenthe, Shaw and Smith and The Lane (all within five minutes of the town).

Please note the conference is open to DET CRC sponsors and researchers only.

Key events are summarised below (please see the Conference programme for further information):

  • Tuesday 19 November 2013: Joint and Co-operative Inversion of Electromagnetic and Seismic Data Workshop
  • Tuesday 19 November 2013: South Australian Mineral Systems Drilling Program – Information and Opportunities for Collaboration

Workshops

Joint and Co-operative Inversion of Electromagnetic and Seismic Data

Primary Facilitator:
Graham Heinson, DET CRC Project 2.4 Leader, University of Adelaide

Date:
Tuesday 19 November 2013

Time:
09:00 – 17:15

Location:
DET CRC Head Office/Boart Longyear, 26 Butler Boulevard, Adelaide Airport, ADELAIDE SA 5950

Cost:
Free of charge

Recommended For:
This workshop is for anyone interested in joint and co-operative inversion of multiple geophysical data sets to provide better constrained geological models.

Overview:
High-quality geophysical data sets are routinely being collected around existing mines and mineral targets.  Such geophysical measurements are used to image the Earth, often in three dimensions, through a process called inversion.  However, given the depth of many target regions, these images generally have poor resolution and suffer from an ambiguity of interpretation.

Joint inversion is a hot area of geophysical research, combining more than one data set to produce a single geological model.  Not only do we get more accurate models of the Earth by using multiple data sets, we also benefit from the mutual constraints between data sets.  This Workshop will demonstrate algorithmic and workflow approaches developed in Phase I of DET CRC Project 2.4 to combine 3D seismic and MT data to produce more accurate and better resolved models for mineral explorers.

South Australian Mineral Systems Drilling Program: Information and Opportunities for Collaboration

Primary Facilitator:
Adrian Fabris, DET CRC Project 3.4 Leader, Department for Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy (DMITRE)

Date:
Tuesday 19 November 2013

Time:
14:00 – 16:00

Location:
Department for Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy (DMITRE) Offices, Level 7, 101 Grenfell Street, ADELAIDE SA 5000

Cost:
Free of charge

Recommended For:
This workshop is an information session for the DET CRC mineral system drill program and for those interested in exploration opportunities in the eastern Gawler Craton.

Overview:
The aim of the workshop is to provide participants with information and initiate a discussion with explorers regarding a proposed DMITRE/DET CRC “Mineral Systems Drilling Program” that we plan to conduct during 2015.  The program will be designed to provide a field test of the DET CRC’s deep exploration strategy; state-of-the-art targeting followed by systematic drilling combined with real-time analysis to enable rapid, informed decision making.  We will present options for explorers to collaborate in the Mineral Systems Drilling Program and provide a forum for feedback and discussion of those opportunities.
