About the Mawson Geo Centre

We study the big picture – the evolving Earth and its resource potential.

Mawson Geo Centre researchers study the tectonics of the planet and apply an exploration philosophy to understanding earth processes and their control on resource endowment. We do this by building multidisciplinary teams that cross traditional university boundaries.

We also provide teaching opportunities in tectonics, resources and exploration across the world, with a focus on the controls on Australia’s resources.

Our team is well respected in the sector and beyond for:

  • award winning research contributions
  • supporting industry to tackle major issues in mineral and energy resources
  • creating the next generation of geoscientists.
