Short Course: Geophysics for Geologists

Geophysics for Geologists: A Geologist's Perspective

Presented by Jenna McKenzie (Ronacher McKenzie Geoscience), Elisabeth Ronacher (Ronacher McKenzie Geoscience), Francis Moul (Condor North Consulting ULC), Bob Lo (Independent Consultant) and Omid Mahmoodi (Saskatchewan Geological Survey).

Date: Monday, December 2nd, 2019
Time: 8:00am-5:00pm

Course description:

Geophysics has the potential to provide much value to an exploration property when applied properly and fully understood. It is critical that geologists understand the breadth of geophysical exploration options available, and the strengths and limitations of a geophysical method before commissioning a survey, interpreting the results and delineating drill targets. Only through the integration of geophysical results with geology can meaningful results be obtained and targets selected with confidence.

This workshop is designed with the geologist in mind; the topics range from regional targeting, belt-scale interpretation to project area and deposit scale applications. Through a series of presentations, exercises and discussions, the material will cover several major geophysical topics with a focus on airborne methods. Topics covered are expected to include: physical rock properties, potential field methods, electromagnetic methods, induced polarisation and resistivity, magnetotellurics and radiometrics. Precompetitive data, considerations when contracting or designing an airborne survey, structural interpretation, geophysical inversion, integration and interpretation will also be discussed throughout the day.
