PDAC 2019 Short Course: Applied Structural Geology of Gold and Base Metal Bearing Hydrothermal Mineralizing Systems

COURSE SOLD OUT
 
Date:
Friday, March 1 - Saturday, March 2, 2019   |   8:30 a.m — 5:30 p.m.

Location:
Room 701A   |   Metro Toronto Convention Centre   |   Toronto, Ontario

Description:
This short course will provide a series of lectures which will address the structural styles and controls on Au and selected base metal deposit types, as well as methodologies for their assessment in exploration and mining environments.  Presentations will review the structural characteristics of orogenic gold deposits, epithermal deposits, and VMS deposits, and examine how the location and morphology of orebodies are controlled by fluid pressure regimes, deformation process, stress states, structural settings, and the effects of post-ore deformation.  In addition, field relationships and workflows  for data acquisition and interpretation at core-, deposit- and district-scale will be reviewed, illustrating the variety of structural features that may be used to constrain deposit-scale geological models. On completion of this course, participants will have received a grounding in the principles of structural control on mineralization and examples of good practice in data acquisition and analysis. Although Au and VMS deposit types will be specifically discussed, the information presented here also may be of benefit to workers in other structurally-controlled, or modified mineral deposits.

Organizer:
This course is organized by Society of Economic Geologists (SEG)

Audience:
Intermediate/Advanced. Participants should have basic understanding or interest in the structural geology of ore deposits. Although Au and VMS deposit types will be specifically discussed, the information presented here also may be of benefit to workers in other structurally-controlled, or modified mineral deposits.

James has 20 years of experience in the structural analysis of mineral deposits. He is an expert in deciphering deposit-scale controls on ore plunge in precious and base metal deposits, the district-scale interpretation of geophysics for exploration targeting, and applied 3D geological modelling. James has taught more than 30 Applied Structural Geology courses to over 1000 exploration and mining geologists and engineers.
 

Wayne Barnett, PhD
Principal Consultant

Wayne has over 20 years of experience in the mining and exploration industry. Hehas certification in rock mechanics and has operated as a geotechnical engineer on two mining operations (8 years mining experience). Consequently he specializes in defining the structural geology of mining projects in order properly characterize the rock mass for geotechnical engineering applications - for scoping to pre-feasibility studies, as well problem-solving in active mining operations.
