UNCOVER Symposium: The future of under cover exploration
Australia's economy is supported through exploitation of natural resource wealth. Discovery of new deposits has not kept pace with depletion of these resources, the end result of depletion of easily discovered near-surface deposits. UNCOVER is an industry-academia-government cooperation intended to drive a step change in mineral exploration discovery rates at greater depth and under cover. This vision requires the coming together of groups on a scale never before attempted. This symposium will showcase some of the early work focused on undercover exploration. Read more.

UNCOVER Isotope geology: a window into crustal evolution, fertility and the geodynamics of earth
This workshop is focused on exploring the strengths and limitations of modern isotope geology for characterising the Australian crust and its mineral systems. Discussion of the systematics and analysis of common radiogenic and stable isotope systems in the morning session will set the scene for a series of applied Australian case studies in the afternoon. The workshop will finish with a forum to address the future directions of isotope geology to inform the UNCOVER initiative to improve the success rates of mineral exploration under post-mineralisation cover.
