OUR MISSION

All MinEx CRC Postgraduate projects are clearly aligned with our Mission to:

  • Demonstrate Australia as a destination country for mineral exploration
  • Develop more productive, safer and environmentally-friendly drilling methods for mineral deposit discovery and drill-out
  • Develop new technologies for collecting data while drilling
  • Implement a world-first collaboration of Geological Surveys, research and industry that will undertake drilling in under-explored areas of potential mineral wealth within Australia.

 

PROJECT AREAS

DRILLING TECHNOLOGIES

  • Drilling optimisation and automation
  • Real-time downhole sensing of drilling parameters
  • Innovative drilling and sampling technologies for mineral exploration

 

DATA FROM DRILLING

  • Cutting edge sensing and in-field analytical techniques
  • Real-time subsurface reconstruction from geophysical logging whilst drilling
  • Novel seismic exploration methods
  • Data science applied to exploration in complex systems
  • 3D prospectivity and uncertainty analysis

NATIONAL DRILLING INITIATIVE

  • Data from frontier, never-before-sampled geological terranes
  • Continent to camp-scale geological architecture and evolution
  • Geologic fundamentals of mineral systems
  • Geophysical and geochemical expression of mineral systems in Earth science data
  • Novel, integrated isotopic and geochronological techniques
  • Mineral deposit vectoring from integrated regional geology, geophysics, geochemistry, geochronology, regolith studies and hydrogeochemistry.
  • Data science techniques for multi-dimensional and multi-scale prospectivity analysis and ore system targeting

We are searching for committed, passionate and talented postgraduate students to join us in this challenge.
