Held in the mining heartland of Broken Hill, the day will revolve around the four main themes of the UNCOVER initiative and will touch on all aspects of the geology and mineralisation of the Curnamona Province and related regions.

The conference will be an opportunity to hear firsthand from active mineral exploration companies as they summarise their recent results and geological understanding of this prospective region.

Ideas will be also be shared from cutting-edge research by the Geological Survey of South Australia and Geological Survey of New South Wales, together with their collaborative partners, including Geoscience Australia, CSIRO, University of South Australia and the University of Adelaide.

Three keynote talks will enlighten attendees on:

  • Aspects of the geology and mining powerhouse that is Broken Hill by Tony Webster (Mining Geoscience)
  • Mineral systems of the Curnamona Province by Roger Skirrow (Geoscience Australia)
  • Tectonic evolution of Proterozoic Australia by Martin Hand (University of Adelaide).

A one-day field trip will also showcase some of the region’s incredible geology.

Symposium: Wednesday 26 July 2017
Field trip (optional): Thursday 27 July 2017
