Over the period of his employment at CODES Dr Stuart Bull's principal responsibility has been 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 have 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 research framework of each project, Stuart's task has generally been 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's research activity over the past five years has been to generate and lead major collaborative research projects, the largest of which was AMIRA/ARC Project P872 Sediment-hosted Cu deposits of the Congolese, Zambian and Central Australian basin systems. This project was successfully completed in late 2008 and, in combination with the preceding P544 project, has led to a paradigm shift in genetic and exploration models for sediment-hosted Cu deposits. He has subsequently been involved in the AMIRA P932-P1041 series which has examined sediment-hosted gold deposits in Nevada and Victoria. He is also currently leading a project with OZ Minerals on their Prominent Hill IOCG mine in South Australia, and working on a project on trace element characteristics of pyrite in marine sediments over Earth history.
