Khin.Zaw@utas.edu.au

Prof Khin Zaw is Professor of Economic Geology at CODES. He received his BSc from Yangon University, Myanmar, in 1968, an FGA Diploma (Fellowships of Gemmological Association of Great Britain) in 1969, his MSc (Economic Geology) from Queen's University, Canada, in 1976 and PhD from the University of Tasmania in 1990. He is a Fellow of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and a Fellow of Society of Economic Geologists. He has over 35 years of experience working on genetic aspects of mineral deposits in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, China and many parts of SE Asia (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Myanmar and Malaysia), and has published a high number of papers relating to ore genesis and mineral exploration in the Australasian region. He works closely with his counterparts from the SE Asia region. He is currently leading an industry-CODES-funded project on the Ore Deposits of SE Asia.

Collaboration

Prof Zaw works as a leader of SE Asia projects. His projects have involved major field programs in Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia and Myanmar with a team of researchers and students from CODES and industry and counterpart geologists from the region. The research projects are undertaken with strong cooperation and collaboration between the research team and public sectors and institutions in SE Asia including: Department of Mineral Resources (DMR), Thailand; Minerals and Geoscience Department Malaysia (MGDM); Geological Agency, Indonesia;Department of Geology (DGM), Laos; Chiang Mai and Chulalongkorn Universities, Thailand; University of Malaya (UM) and University Kebangsaan (UKM), Malaysia; Padjadjaran University, Indonesia; East Yangon and Mandalay Universities, Myanmar who have provided much needed local geological expertise and logistics.

Current projects

On-going UTAS CODES ARC Centre of Excellence in Ore Deposits research project on 'Ore Deposits of SE Asia' aimed to better constrain the age, style and origin of deposits in the context of regional tectonic and magmatic cycles and is providing improved conceptual and genetic models and defining new exploration criteria vital to future discoveries of world class resources in this region.
