Ore Textures/Breccias Workshop

A two day course presented by Dr Roger Taylor

Wednesday 6 December and Thursday 7 December

Roger Taylor

Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG)

Dr Roger Taylor has been involved with the exploration industry for over 40 years operating as a practicing exploration/ mine geologist and academic (Director- Economic Geology Research Unit, James Cook University (1993-1998)). More recent activities include general international consulting to numerous mining companies, further development of a range of professional development courses, and petrological services. Major publications include books on tin deposits, ore textures-breccias, and gossans/ leached outcrops. Major interests are magmatic related deposits, including tin, wolfram, porphyry copper, IOCG, and epithermal systems.

Ore textures

  • Infill - recognition
  • Alteration - textures / types / recognition
  • Channelway recognition - igneous background, brittle fracture / disseminated through stockworks, veins, shears, layer control to major breccia (various styles)
  • Overprinting textures - timing / paragenesis

Mineralised breccias

  • General recognition - field observational principles
  • Understanding breccia components
  • Analysis of classification systems
  • Tectonic, collapse and various intrusive styles. Field approach
  • Breccias in hydrothermal systems-epithermal, diatreme, porphyry hydrothermal intrusive
  • Exploration overview

The course will be presented with illustrative hand specimens which are integrated with the lecture materials.
