Abstract

The Predictive Mineral Discovery Cooperative Research Centre (pmd*CRC) was established under the auspices of the Australian Government's Cooperative Research Ventures Program in 2001. The purpose of the pmd*CRC is to generate a fundamental shift in mineral exploration practive and cost-effectiveness by developing a vastly improved understanding of mineralising processes and a four dimensional understanding of the evolution of the geology of mineralised terranes. Specific ovejectioves of the pmd*CRC are to: • Contribute to the resolution of the key areas of uncertainty in current models for the formation of major economic mineral deposit types within mineralised terranes that have a high exploration priority. • Build 3D and 4D images and histories of well known mineralised systems. • Create a computational environment to simulate the 4D evolution of mineral systems with the goal of developing predictive capabilities for the location and quantity of superior ore deposits. • Transfer these concepts, skills and technologies into the mineral exploration industry to assure a long-term competitive advantage to the industry. The partners in the pmd*CRC are • CSIRO Division of Exploration and Mining • Geoscience Australia • James Cook University • Monash University • University of Melbourne, and • University of Western Australia. The pmd*CRC is currently sponsored by 17 mineral exploration companies and state geological surveys. This volume contains extended abstracts for talk and poster presentations at the pmd*CRC's conference 'Focus on Science' held on 1-3 June 2004.
