Digital Tech Talk Overview

This talk discusses a range of mineral deposit types or systems that are spatially associated with the margins of long-lived, relatively cold, buoyant Precambrian cratons or lithosphere with thick mantle lithosphere roots.

These diverse hypogene deposit groups include world-class to giant BIF-derived iron ores, Kiruna-type Fe-P deposits, anorthosite-hosted ilmenite deposits, IOCG deposits, carbonatite-associated REE-P-Nb-(Cu) ores, intrusion-hosted Ni-Cu-PGE sulfide ores, SEDEX (and MVT) Pb-Zn-Cu deposits, Zambian Copperbelt-type Cu-Co, and IOCG deposits, that provide a high proportion of the global metal inventory.

Presenter

David Groves was born in Brighton, England, and migrated to Tasmania where he was educated at Hobart High School and at the University of Tasmania, completing a PhD on the giant Mt Bischoff tin deposit under the mentorship of Mike Solomon. After a period with the Geological Survey of Tasmania, where he learned mapping and field skills, David was appointed Lecturer in Economic Geology at the University of Western Australia (UWA) in 1972. In 1987, he was awarded a Personal Chair at UWA and formed the Centre for Strategic Mineral Deposits, which morphed into the Centre for Global Metallogeny, with him as Director, and which became the Centre for Exploration Targeting after his retirement as Emeritus Professor. He had a very successful academic career in terms of approximately 500 highly-cited published papers and book chapters, many keynote and invited lectures, and mentorship of many outstanding postgraduates, being awarded 12 medals and prizes, including the SEG Silver and Penrose Gold Medals and the SGA-Newmont Gold Medal, and being inducted into the Australian Academy of Sciences as a Fellow. He has been President of GSA, SEG and SGA during his career and represented Australia on UNESCO committees.
