Short Course 1: Geophysics of Uranium - Application of geophysics for uranium in and around the Athabasca Basin; the good, the bad and the ugly 


Presented by Victoria Tschirhart (Natural Resources Canada), Ken Witherly (Condor Consulting), Colin Card (Ministry of the Economy, Government of Saskatchewan), Omid Mahmoodi (Ministry of the Economy, Government of Saskatchewan) and Don Wright (Peridot Geoscience Ltd.)


Date: Monday, November 27, 2017
Time: 8:00am-5pm


Course description: UPDATE THISDownload Course Description 

Exploration for uranium deposits in and around Proterozoic Basins in Canada is reliant on the use of geophysical techniques to locate prospective areas covered by sedimentary rocks and glacial overburden. However, targeting uranium prospects and deposits is significantly enhanced by taking an integrated approach that requires knowledge of the various geophysical signals and their relationship to the rock properties, geological settings, and geochemical signatures.
 
The workshop will consist of a series of presentations by consultants, government researchers, and industry representatives with expertise working with geophysical data in the Athabasca Basin. The course is designed to familiarize both geologists and geophysicists, from seasoned veterans to geoscientists-in-training, with several geophysical techniques and interpretation strategies applicable to uranium exploration. The morning session will introduce geophysical methods relevant for uranium exploration, from regional- to deposit-scale. The afternoon session will cover several case histories, focusing on different geophysical techniques to solve exploration problems. The day will close with an open discussion, where the speakers will address questions and problems solicited from workshop participants in advance. Overall, the workshop will emphasize the importance of integrating multiple geophysical methods with geological and geochemical datasets in the exploration program.

Short Course 2: Implicit Modelling in Leapfrog Geo


Presented by Alexander Mitrofanov, PhD, PGeo – Senior Resource Geologist, SRK Consulting (Canada)


Date: Monday, November 27, 2017
Time: 8:00am-5pm


Download Course Description 
Implicit Modelling techniques have become the industry standard for geological modelling over the last decade. Improved time efficiency, more realistic shapes of geological features and revolutionary user-friendly interfaces are among the reasons for the success and rapid take-up of implicit modelling.
 
This 1-day practical workshop focuses on developing a basic understanding of the key principles and algorithms that underlie implicit modelling. The course describes the technology behind Implicit Modelling and aims at developing the necessary skills to build complex geological models that serve as a robust basis for a spectrum of mining-related studies.
 
This workshop is largely practical and will consist of short presentations and supervised practical exercises carried out by the participants. Hidden pitfalls and challenges associated with the implicit modelling applications will be addressed and resolved.
 
A Leapfrog Geo license is required for this course. If informed with sufficient advance time (before October 15), SRK can arrange 1-day licenses at no fee for participants who cannot bring their own license.
 
Who is it intended for: This course is intended for exploration, resource and mine geologists who would benefit from learning practical ways to visualize and model geological and geochemical data. Previous experience with Leapfrog Geo is not necessary.
