Come along and hear about plans for Stage 2 of SAXI.
The continuation of the AMIRA International SAXI will see an expanded global research team working with the geological survey organisations (GSOs) of South America to address industry defined priorities in the Guiana Shield and surrounds. The region covers part of Brazil, French Guiana (La Guyane), Suriname, Guyana and Venezuela.
The program aims to enhance the exploration potential of the Guiana Shield and neighbouring terranes through an integrated program of research and data gathering into its 'anatomy'. Key motivations for undertaking this initiative were to:• assist exploration companies in focusing their activities in areas of maximum prospectivity• help local Geological Survey Organisations in the region to build capacity and enhance their capability in their role of providing pre-competitive data and information• build a knowledge base that can be combined with the West African eXploration Initiative (WAXI) database, to produce a seamless coverage for the two regions.
Stage 1 was sponsored by nine global exploration and mining companies and three geological survey organisations. Stage 2 is expected to expand on this, with interest from additional companies and other GSOs.
Hear SAXI lead researcher Mark Jessell (CET-UWA) expand on plans for Stage 2 and learn about the potential for involvement and the benefits from joining the growing consortium.
