Drill Core, Structure, and Digital Technologies Short Courses

Dr Julian Vearncombe will present three (3) one-day short courses dealing with the collection and use of important structural data from oriented drill core.

In the mineral exploration industry, diamond core drilling provides the opportunity to collect structural data relating to a target or deposit. This enables improved and early knowledge and understanding of geological and mineralisation controls of a target, with an outlook to creating allinclusive informative models from combined surface mapping, geophysics and downhole lithology and geochemical assay data. Quality structural data are invaluable to any project, from greenfield exploration to ore body definition in an advanced project with established reserves. Understanding the structural context of a project enables further exploration, ore envelope and shoot definition, and geological control on parameters for grade

These short courses summarises the technologies available in exploration and mining and describes techniques of core orientation, marking-up, structure measurement and the visual representation of structural data. We provide a critical comparison of tools and methods available at each stage of the process.

The course is based on the published research paper: Bright, S., Conner, G., Turner, A. and Vearncombe, J.R. 2014. Drill Core, Structure and Digital Technologies. Applied Earth Sciences (Transactions Institute Mining, Minerals and Metallurgy B), 123: 47-68.
