Current Projects

Our research focusses on regional to deposit scale controls on base and precious metal deposits particularly copper and gold, improving ore body knowledge, and method development. Innovation is in our DNA – from new analytical technology to new geoscientific data, we are at the cutting edge of mineral deposit research.
