New constraints on the evolution of the Paterson Orogen and basement to the Canning Basin

Dr Simon Johnson is the Director of Regional Geoscience at the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA), which he joined in 2006 following several post-doctoral positions in Australia and Japan. He has worked throughout southern Africa and Western Australia specialising in the tectonic evolution of Proterozoic orogenic belts and their mineral systems, utilizing zircon and phosphate geochronology and associated mineral isotopes. At GSWA, Dr Johnson is focussed on producing datasets that promote exploration in underexplored areas under cover.

Victoria – laying the groundwork for an integrated systems approach to tectonics and mineralisation

Ross Cayley is a senior geologist specialising in structural geology, structural geophysics and tectonics. Since 1990, Ross has worked in the Geological Survey of Victoria where he has collaborated with colleagues, other Australian geological surveys and universities. Part of Ross’ role involves being part of technical teams investigating the potential of the geology to realise economic benefit for Victoria, which includes opportunities for world class orogenic gold systems. Orogenic gold deposits are structurally controlled at a range of scales, and it is this underlying control, the wider geological systems context within which it occurs, and the predictive implications for new gold discoveries that arise from an improved understanding that is a major long-term research interest for Ross.
