CSIRO Mineral Resources will hold its annual Mineral Exploration Seminar on Friday 15 February 2019.

The seminar presents the latest research into exploration concepts and tools being developed at CSIRO.

Presentations will be focused around Australian exploration and technology issues, covering topics such as deposit- to camp-scale exploration techniques, integration of petrophysical, structural and geochemical datasets for predictive modelling, and using regional hydrogeochemistry as an exploration tool.
