A podcast produced by the Society of Economic Geologists (SEG) and Seequent, bringing you geoscience and technology stories from the world of ore deposits.
Episode 14 - Tops and Bottoms of Porphyry Deposits featuring Richard Sillitoe
Richard Sillitoe and John Thompson talk about the evolution of the porphyry model from plate tectonics to lithocaps, mineral zoning, and the link to epithermal gold systems. How has the classic ‘tops and bottoms of porphyry deposits’ model changed and...
Episode 13: Structure - Solutions for Complex Data
Capturing structural geology data is important. Why? As Federico Arboleda, founder and CEO of Imago says: “There's no mine unless you can make that [geotechnical] estimation or characterization. And this is the founding data that allows you to define...
Episode 12: Ore Deposit Structure - The Key to Value
Even before plate tectonic theory, economic geologists knew there was an association with ore deposits and geologic structures. Nowadays, most successful exploration companies understand the importance of understanding structural controls of an...
Episode 11: Geoscience Technology for a Better World
What should the relationship be between geoscience technology and the communities we’re a part of? The obvious answer is that geoscience technology should be used to enrich the lives of those in our communities. But as Paul Bauman, Technical Director...
Episode 10: Exploration, Geoscience and Communities
Exploration and mining are human endeavors, relying on teams who work in the field and offices globally. The human factor in our work is also critical to establishing strong and meaningful relationships with local communities. So should those teams of...
Episode 9: From AI To Water - Technology Tools for Gold Exploration
When it comes to gold, we’ve got a number of tools and methods available to help find ore deposits. But what techniques should we be using – and more importantly – how should we be using them? Some of them are right on our desktops – from machine...
This is a very informative and interesting podcast. Excellent discussion by the experts. I look forward to listening to many more of these podcasts.
