Petrogenesis of Eastern Tasmanian Granites (2019 - 2021)$34,000
Description
This PhD study will involve research into key features of eastern Tasmanian granites, their metallogeny and geological setting.The new data and interpretations from this thesis will form a significant contribution to Tasmanian geology and its tectonic history. The results will also form the basis for new regional geological maps that have yet to be produced for the Freycinet Peninsula, as well as resolve some lingering petrogenetic questions, such as, what role did the mantle play in the formation of eastern Tasmanian granitoids? This thesis will provide an important step in understanding the nature of zoned plutons and multi-batholith systems, the interplay between I- and S-type granites and provide new genetic and exploration models for intrusion-related mineralisation in Tasmania. These outcomes have global significance in understanding how these systems form as well as implications into exploration for intrusion-related deposits.
