The course provides a broad coverage of gold geology and exploration, as well as some of the latest research ideas and how they apply to mineral exploration. The course covers all major types of gold deposits with emphasis on Archaean deposits of Western Australia and slate-belt deposits of the Victorian gold province. Geochemistry, structural geology, regolith and deposit geology are covered at a level to enable participants to take their place in industry and government teams and make a contribution in all of these areas. An emphasis of the course is on a holistic approach that uses all applicable fields of geology to address issues pertaining to gold.
