Speaker:  Dr Tobias U. Schlegel, Research Scientist, CSIRO Mineral Resources

Abstract:  The Ernest Henry iron oxide-copper-gold deposit formed in spatial and genetic relation to hydrothermal iron oxide-alkali-calcic-hydrolytic alteration and shows a mappable zonation of mineral assemblages towards the ore body. Mineral assemblages in breccias can be accurately mapped by the SEM-TIMA technique and the combination with portable XRF measurements can help vectoring to ore.

Bio:  Tobias is a research scientist at CSIRO Mineral Resources and has worked on iron oxide-copper-gold systems in the Gawler Craton and the Cloncurry region. His research integrates field studies and laboratory work to investigate the formation of ore deposits. The focus is on geochemistry, applied mineralogy and he is especially interested in the interaction between hydrothermal fluids and rocks during mineralisation.

About JKMRC Friday Seminars 2021

Welcome to the 2021 Series of the JKMRC Friday Seminars.  The list of presentations will aim to cover a range of topics related to the minerals sector from decision making in exploration, new mineral processing technologies, social licence to operate and mine closure.

The JKMRC Friday Seminars will be presented both in person, at the Indooroopilly Mine Site Lecture Theatre, and also as webinar.  Registration for the webinar is required and can be made via the registration link in each seminar overview.
