CSIRO Mineral Resources will hold its annual CSIRO Exploration Seminar on Friday 13 March 2019.

This seminar highlights the latest research and developments into exploration concepts and tools being developed by CSIRO and will provide a platform to share our capabilities and roadmap for future research with industry. Presentations will be split into 4 sessions, each focussed on an area of research in which CSIRO is a leader: The Cover Challenge, New Exploration tools: Vectors for Mineralising Systems, New Exploration Tools: Domain + Digital, and Understanding Mineral Systems Using X-Rays, Lasers, and Electrons.

The day will also include posters showcasing the diversity of research in CSIRO Mineral Resources, demonstrations of new CSIRO-developed digital tools, including Data Mosaic and the Geophysical Toolkit, and a panel discussion on Finding Australia’s Next Tier 1 Deposits. This panel will include senior CSIRO researchers and industry representatives to provide an opportunity for open discussion on the challenges we are facing and anticipate in the future of exploration, and how we might work together to tackle them.
