Ore deposits occur in a wide range of tectonic settings, and are highly variable in their local characteristics. In this paper, we focus on the distribution of copper and gold deposits in the Southeast Asia region, and investigate large-scale plate-tectonic controls on the distribution Read more... about Tectonic controls on the distribution of large copper and gold deposits in Southeast Asia to identify productive and non-productive structures

SK Networks Resources Ltd (SK) is currently exploring beneath shallow cover sequences within greenfield mineral tenure in the Southern Georgina Basin. A geological model has been developed of the Mt Whelan area highlighting two distinct geological domains separated by the Pippagitta Fault: 1) a Read more... about New SEDEX and MVT Provinces discovered under shallow cover in the Southern Georgina Basin

Unless you have been living under a rock, you will undoubtedly be aware the Australian mining industry is currently doing it tough. Since late 2012, global commodity prices have fallen, average salaries have decreased and geologist unemployment has risen sharply. This downturn is nothing abnormal, albeit a more severe version than seen in recent memory. Mining is a boom and bust industry. The high salaries of four years ago were associated with a lack of experienced geologists, fly-in, fly-out (FIFO) rosters and long-term employment uncertainty. Current salaries are reflective of an oversupply of geologists, lack of investment and market uncertainty.

SRK conducted a geological and geophysical modelling study of Darlot-Centenary Gold Mine, Western Australia. This study defined geological boundaries where drilling was limited, allowing for targeting of potential extensions.
