Abstract

This paper was presented at the Australian Nickel Conference held in Perth, 18-19 October 2006 . The nickel industry in Australia is currently experiencing a 'boom phase' with spiralling metal prices to record levels (at least US$34,750/tonne), dwindling global stockpiles, and exploration expenditures and activities near all-time highs. To assist nickel explorers, Geoscience Australia has published a new 1:3 500 000 colour map A Synthesis of Australian Proterozoic Mafic-Ultramafic Magmatic Events. Part 1: Western Australia. The map, for the first time, summarises the major known Proterozoic mafic and ultramafic magmatic events and associated mineral deposits in Western Australia. The major objective of this presentation is to promote the applications of this particular map which should be of interest to those involved in the metallogenesis of mafic-ultramafic rocks, or the study of Proterozoic provinces in Western Australia
