Managing Through (constant) Change And Uncertainty - The Key Dilemmas Facing Resources Industry Personnel

Tuesday, June 8, 2021

Title: Managing Through (constant) Change And Uncertainty -  The Key Dilemmas Facing Resources Industry Personnel

Presenter: Michelle Henderson

Date: Tuesday  8th June

Time: 16:00 AEST  

Location: Joint Zoom virtual + physical presentation at Geoscience Australia



The cyclical nature of the resources industry creates very specific challenges across investment through to people management.  Faced with constant ‘instability’, often supply-limited expertise and the uncertainty over discovery, how do we hold on to our people, maintain their enthusiasm and continue to lead success?

As a professional coach across government and scientific agencies, Michelle brings extensive experience to the ‘problem’ and solution.  Her empathetic and pragmatic approach empowers professionals to not only manage change, but to enthusiastically grasp the opportunities it brings. 


Michelle Henderson is a professional consultant and coach. She has been consulting to government and scientific agencies for the last six years. Her specialties include executive leadership, change and working with governments.

As a consultant Michelle combines her passion for leadership and innovation. She works with senior leaders to help them manage their teams, and themselves, in constantly changing environments. Her empathetic and pragmatic approach empowers professionals to not only manage change, but to actively seek opportunities to make positive change happen.

Prior to consulting, Michelle worked for 23 years at executive and senior executive levels in the areas of industry, innovation and science policy. Michelle has a deep understanding of Australia’s innovation system and the important role science discovery, research and commercialisation play in knowledge and wealth creation for Australia.

Michelle has postgraduate qualifications in Management (industry strategy) and vocational qualifications in training and development.  She is a level 1 accredited coach.

Latin Geophysics Explore

Tuesday, July 27, 2021


The initial geophysics conference “Looking into Our World”, provided us with a platform to develop and learn from. As such, this year’s event will come under the banner of “Latin Geophysics Explore 2021” which better reflects nature of the conference since the science is not dictated by political boundaries but by geoscientific ones.

Building on from last year we wish to grow the event to include a half day training course to complement the speaker program maintaining a similar structure to last year.

A personal reflection on applied geophysics to the understanding of Australia’s geology and mineral potential

Tuesday, March 30, 2021
1730 AEST
1830 AEST

Date: 30th March 2021

Time: 5:30 - 6:30pm AEDT



Richard retired from Geoscience Australia after more than a 30 year career of developing new geological understanding to open up provinces for exploration investment. Applied geophysics played a key component throughout his career, and this seminar will be a personal reflection on the key ‘geophysical-aha’ moments that have changed his understanding of a region’s geology and, through this new knowledge, Australia’s mineral potential.

The 30-year story begins in the field as a young geologist using geophysics to map Cape York, Pilbara and Yilgarn and seismic transects across a number of Proterozoic orogens, through the UNCOVER formulation to the lead designer of the Exploring for the Future programme.

NExUS: Geological Interpretation of Aeromagnetic Data –a Practical Approach

Tuesday, March 30, 2021

NExUS-Professional Development (NExUS-PD) workshops are very proud to to be able to present this highly regarded workshop online for the very first time.

The specially designed two-day online workshop will introduce the fundamentals of geological interpretation of aeromagnetic data.

The workshop will feature lectures, practical activities and case studies all using integrated data sets.


Each day will feature 3 x 2hr sessions with exercises to be completed between the sessions and time allocated for extended discussions. 

The format aims for open, transparent communication, with input from participants highly encouraged to share knowledge and experiences.

Note: This is a level-4 course (honours level) and is designed to be suitable for early career geoscientists, honours students and HDR students. The workshop is not assessed.


Day 1 (Tue, 30th Mar): Methodology of Aeromagnetic Interpretation – Presented by David Isles 

Day 2 (Wed, 31st Mar): Geological Interpretation and Structure – Presented by Leigh Rankin 

Cancellation and Refund T&C: Refunds will be given if notice of non-attendance is received prior to 3 days of the course start date or in the event the course is cancelled.

We would like to remind members that the ASEG are offering full fee paid scholarships to attend the NExUS Course, Geological Interpretation of Aeromagnetic Data. The ASEG will fund registrations for two full and one student registration. Preference will be given to members earlier in their career. 

To apply for the scholarship, ensure your ASEG membership is current, and send an email to outlining in 100 words or less how this would benefit you. Applications close 10 March, successful scholarship recipients will be announced Friday 19 March.

EAGE 4th Asia Pacific meeting on Near Surface Geoscience & Engineering

Tuesday, November 30, 2021

EAGE is proud to announce that the4th Asia Pacific Meeting on Near Surface Geoscience& Engineering is scheduled to take place in Ho Chi Minh City from 30 November –2 December 2021.

This meeting aims to strengthen the ties between geoscientists and engineers, academia and industry, the young and experienced in the near surface geoscience domain. Areas that the conference typically covers are geotechnical investigations (infrastructure), geohazards and disaster mitigation, hydrogeophysics & hydrogeology, climate, contamination survey, etc. The conference programme will focuson issues relevant to Vietnamand the Asia Pacificregion and attended by industry professionalsglobally.

The 14th SEGJ International Symposium

Monday, October 18, 2021

The Society of Exploration Geophysicists of Japan (SEGJ) is planning its fourteenth International Symposium on 18-21 October, 2021 online.  The theme of the symposium is "Road ahead for geophysics in digital society: Acquisition, processing, and interpretation".


Inaugurated in 1990, the SEGJ International Symposium has been held every two to three years, and has established as one of the most popular and exciting conferences in applied geophysics in the eastern hemisphere.

ASEG Webinar - Stranded stream channels investigated by LiDAR mapping, some geophysics and good old leg work. Insights into the Lapstone Structural Complex west of Sydney.

Wednesday, October 21, 2020
1800 (AEST)
1900 (AEST)

Brought to you by NSW on Wednesday 21 October, 6pm (AEST) for a talk by Peter Hatherly.


Stranded stream channels investigated by LiDAR mapping, some geophysics and good old leg work. Insights into the Lapstone Structural Complex west of Sydney.


In the contemporary parlance, the western boundary of what the media call the Sydney Basin is the Lapstone Structural Complex. The front range of the Blue Mountains. This abrupt escarpment rises to a maximum height of 600 m above the Cumberland Plain and forms an impressive boundary to the Blue Mountains beyond.

Geologists identified the monoclines and faults associated with the LSC as early as the nineteenth century but an understanding of the exact nature of the structure and its timing is still not clear. In this talk I take note of evidence of stranded channels evident in detailed LiDAR mapping, the occurrence of river gravels now high above the Nepean River and seismic refraction results within the Thirlmere Lakes, a curious river system within the southern extension of the LSC.


My suggestion is that in its present form, the LSC is probably no older than 10 million years.
