New Techniques in 3D Geological Mapping, Simulation & Visualisation for Predictive Mineral Exploration
New Techniques in 3D Geological Mapping, Simulation and Visualisation for Predictive Mineral Exploration
In today’s complex and competitive environment, GIS offers multiple applications in the mining industry with tools to gather, compile, process, display, analyse, and archive extensive volumes of data. A well designed, implemented, and supported GIS management structure is critical to the success of your mining or exploration operation.
This webinar specific to 3D Geological Mapping can assist your exploration activities and enhance your predictive mineral exploration. Tim covers critical areas such as:
- Using 3D visualisation to effectively map and simulate resource formation for mineral and energy exploration
- How best to utilise the 3D visualisation of data for exploration purposes
- Visualisation for geology: functions and strategic directions
- Conducting stress field analysis, model calibration and earth system modelling using 3D systems
- Applying 3D modelling to refine search areas based on potential source rock and fluid pathway distribution
This is a webinar for the explorer, the geologist, and for practitioners who want to gain further knowledge into the technical aspects, solutions and technologies of the mining geospatial world.

Associate Professor Tim Rawling, The University of Melbourne, AUS
My current role at the University is as the Director of Infrastructure Development with the Australian Geophysical Observing System (AGOS). This is a program which through monitoring, geophysics and lab-based petrophysics will focus on better understanding the nature and state of the shallow crust in Australia My recent research has involved the development of new exploration methodologies involving 3D modeling and finite element simulation. My background is in structural geology and IT. I have previously worked as a consultant exploration geologist (at 3DGeo), as the manager of the 3D modelling and simulation programs at GeoScience Victoria, as the MCA funded lecturer at the University of Melbourne, a commercial programmer and as a researcher at Monash University and the University of Arizona. My previous research work involved investigation of the tectonic evolution of New Caledonia and the SW Pacific as well as structural controls on mid crustal fluid flow in the Eastern Successions at Mt Isa.
