About this Event

Geoscience Update Forums (GUF): West Yilgarn

Geoscience Update Forums (GUF) are a new initiative designed to provide an opportunity for GSWA and its stakeholders to exchange relevant data, ideas, experiences, and potentially influence ongoing project plans. The first GUF will showcase ongoing work from GSWA’s West Yilgarn Project team (and associated research collaborators) who have been dramatically increasing our understanding of the geodynamic evolution of the western Yilgarn Craton. This team’s provision and integration of comprehensive geoscientific datasets will inform future exploration and land use activities in the region.

Presentations will be followed by an open discussion; light refreshments will be available.
