The John de Laeter Centre provides quantitative data used to understand processes of Earth and planetary evolution, characterise the nature of resources and materials upon which our society depends, and monitor our changing environment. K., Aeppli, C., Samuel, J., Chen, H., De Oliveira, A.
Around 35 people from various research institutions, service providers and the mining industry attended the workshop from across Australia.
The day started with a tour of the John de Laeter Centre (Jd LC) facilities incorporating the Tescan integrated mineral analyser (TIMA; ), which was the key instrument of relevance to the workshop.
“In recent years our research activity, particularly in geosciences, has grown significantly, driving Curtin’s rapid rise up the international university rankings,” Professor Wright said. On the 8th July 2015, staff at the John de Laeter Centre (Jd LC) hosted a two-hour workshop to discuss current and upcoming projects focused on geochemistry data discovery.
All natural occurrences of reidite are associated with the transformation of the mineral zircon during the high pressures and temperatures associated with meteorite impact events. The audience comprised a score of people from around Australia with representatives present from Curtin University's Office of Research and Development, Curtin University Library, CSIRO, ANDS, NCI, GSWA, MRIWA and AMMRF.
A team of Curtin University geoscientists has discovered the earliest known occurrence of reidite, one of Earth’s rarest minerals.
