Geochemical methods and datasets
Advancement in ICP-MS technology has resulted multi-element geochemistry methods with detection levels below or close to crustal abundance. The routine use of these methods now produces data sets rich with information, but the results are often underutilized due to what can be an overwhelming amount of data.
Scott Halley – BSc (Hons), PhD, MSEG, MAIG
Scott Halley will provide tools for geologists at all stages of their careers to make the most of these large geochemical data sets to map hydrothermal and magmatic processes.
The tools will help geologists use geochemistry as a routine tool for the geological interpretation of their projects, beyond simple mineralisation domaining and anomaly identification.
