This is my presentation given at the Kalgoorlie "Big Day Out" on 20/03/2023, sponsored by Raglan Drilling and the Geological Survey of Western Australia. I have added lots of text in the notes page to help explain my thoughts, so display this in a powerpoint mode where you can read the notes below the slide page.
Applied Lithogeochemistry in the Eastern Goldfields
This is my presentation given at the 50th anniversary of the Sydney Mineral Exploration Discussion Group (SMEDG) on 25th August, 2022. The invited theme was to discuss the most significant advances in geochemistry in recent time, but also to reflect on how we use our data, and what things we need to do better. I added a brief case study on how routine exploration data, collected by 4 acid digest ICP-MS, can inform us about geological processes; in this case the evolution of alkalic magmas associated with gold rich porphyry systems. I have added lots of text in the notes page to help explain my thoughts, so don't just view in slideshow mode.
"Geohug" Webinar from 26th February 2021
This powerpoint point file was from a webinar sponsored by ALS on 25th February 2021. It introduces some basics about assay methods, QAQC, databases, and interpretation of data. This is some useful reading matter to go through before starting the "teach yourself" tutorials.
