One of Australia's premier minerals provinces, the Gawler Craton, will be the focus of a three-day conference in Adelaide from 4-6 August. Hosted by Geoscience Australia and Primary Industries and Resources SA (PIRSA), Gawler Craton: State of Play 2004, will have speakers from industry, government, and academia presenting the results of recent work done in the Gawler Craton.

Geoscience Australia and PIRSA have been involved in a multidisciplinary, geoscientific project in the Gawler Craton since July 2000, producing pre-competitive geological, geophysical, geochemical and metallogenic datasets for use by the mineral exploration industry to locate deposits of gold, copper, probable nickel, diamonds and minerals sands.

The seminar will wrap up on 6 August with a Seismic Workshop and release of data from the Gawler Seismic Survey: 250 line-kilometres of deep seismic reflection data from the Olympic Dam region of the eastern Gawler Craton.
