Successful course in fusing geochemistry and structural geology

One of the major challenges in modern exploration is integrating large datasets of structural and lithogeochemical data. Far too often, such datasets are treated separately, leading to that their full potential for finding new mineral deposits is left untapped.

This topic was addressed by Prof. Nick Oliver in the short course “Fusing geochemistry and structural geology for exploration, mining and research”, which was given at Luleå University of Technology 24-25 May. The course included a practical exercise on a drill core provided by Boliden Mineral AB, and a practical using the ioGAS software by Reflex.
