Speaker:  Professor Gideon Rosenbaum, School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, UQ

Abstract: Plate geodynamics plays a primary role in the spatial and temporal distribution of ore deposits. Therefore, geodynamic reconstructions can be used as a tool for predictive mineral discovery.

Bio: Professor Gideon Rosenbaum is a structural geologist at UQ’s School of Earth & Environmental Sciences. He was educated at the Hebrew University (BSc, MSc) and Monash University (PhD), and held a 2-year research fellowship at Johannes Gutenberg University (Mainz, Germany). Gideon’s research addresses fundamental problems in global tectonics, such as the relative movements of tectonic plates, the nature of plate boundaries, and the reconstruction of past plate-tectonic processes. He has published >110 papers dealing mainly with the origin of curved mountain belts (‘oroclines’), the development of ‘backarc’ sedimentary basins, and the geodynamic controls on anomalous magmatism and ore formation.

About JKMRC Friday Seminars 2022

Welcome to the 2022 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.

A large number of past webinars can be accessed on the SMI website: https://smi.uq.edu.au/webinars
