The project peripherally involves CMXUC but is included here as a model example of practical exploration focussed research within a niche that the CMXUC hopes to fill post-CRC LEME. The project was a spectacular success in 2007 driven by the efforts of five honours students and one PhD student under the guidance of Dr Hill. Research topics included everything from basement tectonics to landscape evolution to soil, plant, ant and kangaroo poo chemistry. The geochemical sampling program was supported by Heathgate Resources via a PACE round 4 drilling grant. Plant geochemistry being recognised as a potential substitute for drilling in environmentally and culturally sensitive areas of the 4-mile drainage.
This project was completed in December 2007.
