New exploration guide to the Victorian Gold Province
The State of Victoria was one of the world’s leading sources of gold during the 1850s. In the half century that followed, the benefits of gold mining funded much of the earliest infrastructure and architecture of Melbourne, Ballarat, Bendigo and many other locations in southeast Australia.
The opportunity exists today for a major find similar to those of the past, and possibly under cover. It is also likely that there are deposit types that were either unrecognised during the 19th century or were recognised but were uneconomic at the time. For various reasons, Victoria completely missed the 1980s global gold boom and has had modest sustained exploration activity since, despite some producing operations in existing goldfields. As such, there is a real chance of applying modern exploration methods in relatively untested areas within a major gold province.
This contemporary exploration guide is written for geologists who are likely to be outside Victoria and possibly outside Australia. The target reader is one who is able to influence or decide where a company’s exploration focus will be, potentially an exploration or new ventures manager. Some exploration experience is assumed such as a broad-based knowledge of the industry, but not necessarily technical knowledge relating to gold deposits or knowledge of Victorian geology.
