Career Summary

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.

Research Activity

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.

Co-Supervision

Daniel Gregory

Jeff Steadman

Teaching Responsibilities

Various lectures and practicals in sedimentology, basin analysis and sediment-hosted ore deposits.

Description
In this study, we will evaluate a mineral province which is celebrated for its zinc‐lead‐silvermineralisation, but we will be focussing on copper. The Proterozoic McArthur Basin is part ofthe north Australian Carpentaria Zinc Belt; it contains one very major example of stratiformshale‐hosted zinc‐rich ore deposit (McArthur River/HYC), and a host of similar minor deposits,in a structurally complex region called the Batten Fault Zone (BFZ). Because of this, theMcArthur Basin has long been thought to be a single commodity basin. However, both 50 kmwest and east of the main line of zinc deposits, there are camps with a significant number ofoccurrences of copper‐rich historical workings, that are stratigraphically in the RedbankPackage (Rawlings 1999), which is dominated by the Tawallah Group (the basal unit of theMcArthur Basin), ie stratigraphically deeper than the hosts to the zinc deposits. There are alsosome deposits in the lower McArthur Group. Key prospect examples are Johnstons,Coppermine Creek, Sly Creek, Darcys, Margoo, and the Tawallah Pocket. Most of these wereprospected over the last 100 years, but at least one (Coppermine Creek) has been the subjectof recent (2006) exploration drilling, and yielded a significant intercept of copper (17 m @ 0.5%Cu, with a high of >8% Cu; Sandfire Resources, 2006) from an electrical geophysical target thatis 1.8 km long.
