Inlice alteration zones and quartz veins (https://www.stratexinternational.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/analystFile-3.pdf)
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, including altered 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 four days, two of which will be spent in the field. Lectures will cover ore deposit types commonly hosted by volcanic successions, 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.
The field days will focus on the Tertiary volcanic units exposed at and near the Inlice Au deposit. The Inlice Au deposit is currently owned by Eczacibasi Esan and includes a wide variety of both fresh and variably altered volcanic and subvolcanic units. The first field day will provide practice in naming, describing and interpreting a variety of volcanic facies using outcrop and hand sample characteristics. The second day will involve graphic logging of a section of volcanic facies and will develop skills in understanding facies architecture, depositional environments, proximity to source vents, and the distinction between hydrothermal alteration of volcanic products.
The course is presented and taught in English. There will also be opportunities to discuss concepts in Turkish with the volcanology assistant, Dr. Gonca Gencalioglu Kuscu. Dr. Gencalioglu Kuscu is a Lecturer at Mugla Sitki Kocman University in Mugla, Turkey. Dr. Gencalioglu Kuscu completed a BSc'92 in Geological Engineering from Middle Eastern Technical University in Ankara, Turkey. She received her PhD'97 from Keele University in Straffordshire, UK under the supervision of Dr. Peter A. Floyd. Her research interest is centered on petrology of igneous rocks and physical volcanology. Her research in the Central Anatolian Volcanic Province involves both polygenetic and monogenetic volcanoes, and magmatic to phreatomagmatic eruption products. Her current research also includes UAV application in Kula monogenetic fields in Western Anatolia. Other research interests are identification, characterization and correlation of mid-distal Aegean arc tephra (PDC and airfall related to the Kos-Nisyros-Yali volcanic system) on the Turkish west-coast and geoheritage-geotourism in volcanic regions.
Who should attend
This course is intended for geologists engaged in regional- or
deposit-scale mapping or in drilling programs in volcanic successions 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

Past Course Comments:
Course content was well organized and structered
to facilitate instruction to more detailed & advanced concepts. Jocelyn
was very knowledgeable & clearly delivered the content at a good pace.
Handbook and content easy to follow.
Good field trip. Volcanic
examples deposit. All well organized.
Very complete all times.
The field days. The expertise of the instructor.
McPhie's presentation is so clear and easily understandable. KLS -
Thanks for doing these geological meetings (Everything was so good!!)
Great course, very
informative. Essential for anyone working in volcanic environments.
Jocelyn's expertise and enthusiasm on the subject were apparent
throughout her clear and engaging delivery of the course material.
Very clear, well-paced,
consistent presentations. For two days we covered a good range of topics
without too much detail and covering the full range of applicable
The time taken for hands
on and interactive problem solving / rock naming was extremly valuable.
The way the course was laid out was also very logical and the instructor
was excellent at making all topics easy to digest.
This course was amazing!
Jocelyn is a very talented volcanologist & a great instructor.
This course is extremely valuable for a mapping geologist or core-logger
& very applicable to mineral exploration.
The hands on exercise and
detailed time spent classifying/naming real rocks is very helpful.
The material for the
course, instructor and the organization was excellent. Material will be
very useful for my future work, as well as in the University for the
teaching of students and for the scientific work as for the description
and interpretation volcanic and volcano-sedimentary rocks in the altered
areas, which is always problematic. Also it was a very good mix of the
lectures and field trips. Drill core observations and interpretations
was a very good and useful lessons for the company's geologists.
The strengths of the
instructor go without comment. One of the best professors I have had.
The course material was very well designed, focused, easy to follow and
will be a valued reference. The course was very well organized,
everything ran on time (even the field parts, which can prove
difficult), the stops were pertinent and enough time was spent at each
to fully understand the concepts presented. Good venue, as well, very
