This project will deliver a new quantitative and integrated exploratory framework for the mineral industry in
Australia’s frontier sedimentary basins by integrating the latest advances in laboratory experimental tectonics with
thermo-mechanical numerical, surface process and geophysical modelling. The project will use northern Australian basins as a natural laboratory to address the fundamental processes involved in the development of sedimentary ore systems. We will investigate how they can be detected by modern exploration techniques using a multidisciplinary approach with a team of experts with backgrounds in mineral and petroleum systems.
