5 Day Course - Introduction to core logging, data quality and interpretation

About this event

Attendance to this introductory course is open to geoscience students, graduates and recently employed industry professionals with the aim to support members of AIG /AusIMM.

AusIMM and AIG are pleased to announce an introductory 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 introductory 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 exercise. Building confidence in data collection and analysis is a key objective of the program. The course is not suitable for people already experienced in core logging.

Evolution Mining are strong supporters of this initiative and are allowing use of their drill core at the Geological Survey of Queensland’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 several cross-section interpretations on paper through the deposit. A confidentiality agreement 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 Qld government’s Hylogger and data as well as other scanner based core logging approaches being developed for geology applications. 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.”- Past Attendee
