PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COURSE

"Volcanology for Exploration Geologists"

With Dr. Jocelyn McPhie

 

Downtown Vancouver, Canada

January 26 (Saturday) and January 27 (Sunday), 2019 (2 days)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


           

Introduction  This short course helps participants to develop the knowledge and skills required for exploring, mining or researching in volcanic terrains. It combines fundamental information on how volcanoes work and what they produce, and practical information on how to name, describe and log volcanic facies in the field and in drill core. The relationships between volcanic and ore forming processes are reviewed for important volcanic-associated ore deposit types (VMS, epithermal Au-Ag, porphyry Cu-Au, komatiite-hosted Ni, kimberlite-hosted diamonds).

Course Format and Delivery   The short course will run for 2 days in the classroom. Lectures will cover kinds of volcanoes, eruption styles and products on land and under water, effects of hydrothermal alteration on volcanic rocks, and breccias in mineralised volcanic environments.  There are Naming and Breccia exercises with real samples as well.

Who should attend  This course is intended for geologists engaged in regional- or deposit-scale mapping or in drilling programs in volcanic successions (including those on the modern sea floor) for the purpose of mineral exploration (especially VMS, epithermal Au-Ag, porphyry Cu-Au, komatiite Ni, or diamonds) and for geological survey geologists embarking on mapping projects in volcanic successions. No prior volcanology training is required.   

Dr. Jocelyn McPhie  is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Tasmania and Principal Consultant in McPhie Volcanology. She is a world leader in the application of volcanology for the exploration for mineral deposits. She has developed practical techniques to unravel the complex geology of volcanic terrains and has particular expertise in textural interpretation of altered volcanic rocks, volcanic facies analysis, volcanic eruption and emplacement processes, and volcanic influences on ore formation. Her research contributes directly to the knowledge and understanding of fundamental physical volcanology, and the links between volcanic and hydrothermal processes. She has published 75 papers in peer-reviewed international journals, and is senior author of the book, Volcanic Textures, widely used by academic and industry geoscientists working in volcanic successions.
