The AusIMM Geoscience Society and the AIG are pleased to announce a 5 day course to assist skills development for geoscientists. With the current upswing in exploration and mining activity now is a good time to gain exposure to practical data collection and analysis skills which will enhance your job readiness or effectiveness.

The aim of this program is to develop your understanding of data collection and data management, sampling, assay QAQC, data validation and interpretation processes through a practical core logging based 5 day exercise. Building confidence is a key objective of the program.

Evolution Mining are strong supporters of this initiative and are allowing use of their drill core at the Queensland Government’s Exploration Data Centre at Zillmere in Brisbane. Attendees will log a series of holes across two cross sections of the Mt Rawdon gold deposit investigating the main lithologies, relative timing of units, mineralisation, alteration and geotechnical character. This data will then be merged with the mine database and used to produce a number of cross section interpretations on paper through the deposit. Confidentially agreements will be signed by all attendees to access this real-world dataset.

In addition it is planned to include a visit to an assay lab, undertake a pXRF demonstration, inspect the Hylogger and review data it has collected for the holes logged. District geology discussions will be held with GSQ staff.

Attendees will receive a certificate of completion from this course as an AusIMM/AIG endorsed program.

Numbers will be limited to ensure close contact between attendees and course leaders.

Good ‘hands-on’ experience and I was surprised how much I learnt about the industry and processes involved around logging.
