Picking up where she left off – MIWATCH welcomes back Dipanshu

In 2021, MIWATCH hosted Dipanshu Sharma as a visiting BSc honours student where she undertook geochemical analysis on Tasmanian tailings. After completing her honours she returns to MIWATCH for the next few months before heading into industry.

Dipanshu graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Geology and Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from the University of Queensland in 2022. She recently completed her honours from the University of Queensland focusing on the geochemical characterisation of metabasalt rocks from the Mount Isa Inlier, Queensland.

While completing her undergraduate studies, Dipanshu gained work experience in both soft and hard rock mines in Queensland and New South Wales. During the final year of her undergraduate studies, Dipanshu worked as a graduate exploration geologist at Mount Isa Mines.

Dipanshu will be working across all MIWATCH projects as needed and has already kicked off her second stint with us completing two successful field campaigns in Thalanga and Cloncurry (more to come on those in later blogs).

We very much welcome her energy back into the team – it takes someone almost superhuman to finish a day of hard work augering in the QLD sun and then go for a 5 km run before dinner!
