Thesis: 4D Modelling of the Palaeoproterozoic Granites - Tanami Orogen and its mineral systems

This study is focused on determining the architectural controls on mineralisation and crustal evolution of the Palaeoproterozoic Granites - Tanami Orogen, Australia.

Why my research is important

Understanding the nature of the lithosphere and its crustal architecture is vital in the successful execution of regional mineral exploration under cover. Mapping of crustal architecture is achieved by integrating regional scale geophysical datasets with geological knowledge. In this study, we use the Paleoproterozoic Granites – Tanami Orogen of central Australia as a natural laboratory to test the relationship between mineral systems and crustal architecture, and illustrate how these associations aid vectoring in on undiscovered resources under cover.
