The Cobar Branch invites you to an evening event to hear three guest speakers, held in conjunction with the Geological Survey of New South Wales
Phil Gilmore, Manager Regional Mapping, GSNSW, will speak on “Geodynamic constraints on central Lachlan geology from geological mapping and age dating”
Phil Gilmore has over 22 years experience in geoscience with industry, consulting and government. After completing a B.Sc. (Hons) at the University of Newcastle, he worked as an exploration geologist in the Yilgarn Craton in Western Australia, a 3D coal resource geologist and as a regional mapper in NSW. He has mapped in a wide range of terranes from the Archean to Quaternary. In his current role, he is responsible for the mapping and interpretation of the geology of NSW. He maintains a strong interest in mineral systems and completed a Master of Economic Geology at the University of Tasmania. Phil also has extensive experience in GIS applications, including four years as GIS Manager for Land Use Consultants based in London. He is a Governing Councillor of the Geological Society of Australia.
Chris Yeats, Executive Director GSNSW, will present “MinEx CRC comes to Cobar – new mapping, geochemistry, geophysics, and drilling”
Chris Yeats is an ore deposit geologist and geochemist with almost 30 years’ experience in precious and base metal exploration and research, in terranes ranging in age from the Archaean to modern active seafloor hydrothermal systems.
Chris joined the Geological Survey of NSW as Executive Director in June 2015. Prior to this, he spent 17 years with CSIRO, where his work focused on the exploration for and the geochemistry, mineralogy and petrology of gold and base metal mineralisation in ancient and modern terranes. He has participated in approximately 20 marine expeditions, the majority of which have focused on arc- and backarc-related seafloor hydrothermal activity in the west and southwest Pacific, including the first attempt to commercially drill seafloor massive sulfides in the Kermadec Arc and two ocean drilling program legs. He has published extensively on gold and base metal systems, and has over 500 career citations. In October 2018, Dr Yeats was named a Fellow of the Geological Society of Australia for his significant scientific contribution and service to Australian geoscience.
John Greenfield, Director Geoscience Acquisitions and Synthesis, GSNSW, will present “Mineral potential mapping in western NSW”
John Greenfield has a 1st Class Honours degree in geology from the University of Wollongong and a PhD from the University of Sydney in 1998, mapping in east Antarctica and central Australia. After four years mapping in the Yilgarn for the Geological Survey of WA, he joined CSIRO Exploration & Mining working on base-metal mineral systems, and as a consultant with Gold Fields Ltd, he worked in Venezuela on orogenic gold targets. He has been with the Geological Survey of NSW for the last fourteen years overseeing regional mapping, geophysics and mineral systems.
This event is co-hosted by the AusIMM Cobar Branch and the Geological Survey of NSW
