Innovative geochemical research delivers new exploration insights in the Capricorn region of WA

MRIWA-sponsored research in project M0436 by scientists from CSIRO, The Centre for Exploration Targeting, and Curtin University has developed new understanding of the mineral endowment of Western Australia’s Capricorn region.

The team gathered new insight into the evolution of the region, and developed innovative approaches using groundwater chemistry and sulfur isotope data to recognise potential mineralisation buried beneath barren cover rocks.
