[Core sessions]
Adelaide Workshop - core sessions at the DMITRE Minerals core library. Two core sessions were conducted punctuating the classroom presentations. The first, of near 2 hours in the late morning to early afternoon, concentrated on drill core laid out from five deposits/prospects in the central and northern Olympic IOCG Province. These drill holes are from drilling as long ago as the early 1980s and no geologists familiar with the holes are now available. However, for each hole the group had a summary, graphic, spectral and detailed geological log with all intervals and assays within their guide book, as well as a geological description and location image for the prospect/drill hole showing geophysical data. A finger food lunch was served during the core session allowing the group to eat while they studied the core. In the second session of over 90 minutes, the group had the opportunity of studying core through the Kalkaroo deposit in the Curnamona Province, with Chris Giles of Havilah Resources (lower centre) who conducted them through the hole. At the same time, they were able to inspect the extensive collection of rock specimens illustrating the lithologies and IOCG-related alteration and mineralisation of Yorke Peninsula (lower right) assembled by expert consultant, Colin Conor who was on hand to guide the group through the collection.   Photographs by Mike Porter.
