We are delighted to announce that CAGE is back for 2023!


The Australian Society of Exploration Geophysics is hosting a one-week Camp for Applied Geophysics Excellence in Western Australia from Sunday 24th of September, returning on Sunday October 1st, 2023. This field camp will involve seven days of real-world application of major geophysical techniques.


The camp kicks off with an introduction to the approaches, goals and challenges of geophysics for mineral exploration. The necessary field training, theory and methodologies of major geophysical techniques will be provided by industry-recognized experts. Potential field, electrical, electromagnetic and seismic methods will be explained, together with their applications for mineral exploration, natural resource management and geotechnical work. The deployment of geophysical equipment, work health and safety considerations and survey design will also be covered.


Participants will learn how to process geophysical data and utilise various commercial and open-source software packages. They will complete practical sessions on basic data importation and reduction, filtering, modelling, inversion, data display and importantly, interpretation. The camp also covers how to integrate diverse geophysical datasets to map/image the sub-surface in the vicinity of a sulfide target in Forrestania, Western Australia.


Attendance cost is fully covered by our sponsors and there are limited spaces available. Applicant selection will be based on the answers provided in these forms.
