Research Themes

The three research themes of the CMXUC are designed to answer three broad questions related to mineral exploration in regions of cover. The research questions are:

  1. What is the nature, tectonic evolution and mineral prospectivity of the basement rocks? 
  2. What is the nature, evolution and mineral prospectivity of the cover sequences and what can they tell us about the basement on which they lie?
  3. How can the structure of the cover and basement be mapped in 3-dimensions, in order to help define its evolution and focus exploration efforts in prospective rocks?
