Various lectures and practicals in sedimentology, basin analysis and sediment-hosted ore deposits.
Dr Stuart Bull worked full time at CODES for 20 years during which his principle responsibility was to provide input on basin analysis into a multidisciplinary research team investigating the origin of various styles of sediment-hosted ore deposits within a series of major collaborative research projects. These included ARC/AMIRA projects P384 and 384a Stratiform Sediment-hosted Zn Deposits, ARC/AMIRA projects P544 and 872 Stratiform Sediment-hosted Cu Deposits, AMIRA project P552 Numerical Fluid Flow Modelling of Sediment-hosted Ore Systems and AMIRA project P923 Sediment-hosted Au Deposits. Within the framework of each project, Stuart's role was to lead all aspects of the research pertaining to basin development and architecture, thereby providing a framework for, and constraining aspects of, ore genesis. Stuart is now working as a consultant in basin analysis to the minerals exploration industry, but remains involved with CODES in a teaching and supervisory capacity as an honorary research fellow.
Stuart's research activity has been focused on constraining the setting and genesis of sediment hosted ore systems including, most recently; the Sediment-hosted Cu deposits of the Congolese, Zambian and central Australian basin systems; the sediment hosted gold deposits in Nevada and Victoria; and the Prominent Hill IOGG deposit in South Australia. He is currently working on a project on trace element characteristics of pyrite in marine sediments over earth history.
