Take a look at the Course Flyer!
This innovative training course uses applied learning techniques and real‐world mineral exploration scenarios to train participants in the key principles of interpreting geophysical data sets, without the need for complex mathematics and physics. This course teaches participants to integrate geological and geophysical methods to optimise mineral exploration opportunities.
Why Take This Course?
The future of mineral exploration is searching for deposits undercover where geophysics will increasingly play a role in your exploration success. Savvy explorers will recognize the importance of increasing their skill sets to utilize geophysical data sets to understand what they can and cannot tell us about the geological environment.
Who Should Take This Course?
Industry, government and student geologists seeking to understand how to use geophysical datasets to explore and map.
Geophysicists seeking to improve their interpretation skills
3‐day Training Course (Take a look at the course flyer above for more details!)
Day 1: Key principles of magnetics
Day 2: Key principles of gravity
Day 3: Key principles of electrical and EM methods, seismic & radiometrics
The course will include lectures and a series of practical exercise.
- Increased capability in best‐practise geophysical interpretation
- Ability to solve exploration challenges with geophysical data sets
- Understanding the capabilities and limitations of various geophysical data types
