Offered every second year
Exploration in data-rich environments, close to existing mines, has become a preferred method of increasing company resources in recent years. With this exploration philosophy in mind, this course aims to bring participants up to date with many of the latest exploration techniques. The course will cover cutting-edge technologies in geophysics, GIS, machine learning, geochemistry and 3D visualisation, using real data from world-class mineralised districts. The course is presented by expert teaching staff from CODES and the minerals industry.
