Research field: Stratigraphy
Key words: 3D mapping software, 3D mapping software, stratigraphy, structure

Project Description: Marker beds, Ballarat East goldfield
Lithology may play an important role for gold prospectivity at Ballarat. Historical data includes a number of units that have been traced over several kilometres, but are complicated by folding and faulting. Rebuilding the stratigraphy in 3D has strong applications to exploration targeting. In collaboration with Castlemaine Goldfields Ltd.
