The MMF is involved in the creation of the Digital Mineralogy Hub facility which is using cutting-edge scanning electron microscope technology to construct a mineralogical and geodata library for the Australian continent. We are currently involved in an exciting new project with CSIRO and UWA called the Advanced Resource Characterisation Facility which will bring new atom probe and ion beam technology to Western Australia.

The first major facility being developed under the auspices of the National Resource Sciences Precinct (NRSP) was announced by the Australian Government, in August.

“The discovery of this Precambrian occurrence indicates the potential for using the presence of reidite to indicate and record very ancient impact events,” Professor Reddy said.

“It is a breakthrough discovery that will help determine terrestrial impact events which have had a profound influence on Earth’s geological, geochemical and biological evolution.” Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Development Professor Graeme Wright said Curtin is at the forefront of high-impact research and development in minerals and energy sectors.

Dr Mark Aylmore, recently appointed to take on the role of Applied Mineralogist in the Jd LC, chaired the workshop that included presentations from: • Dr Kamran Khajehpour (AXT), who gave an overview of automated mineralogy and supported by Esben Kjaer (Struers) who gave a brief overview on sample preparation techniques.

* The Digital Mineralogy Library project is supported by the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) and Au Scope through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy Program. The collapse of iron ore prices to below /tonne, down from a peak of 0/tonne four years ago, has hit WA hard and the state is now urgently seeking ways to stimulate its mineral sector and diversify its resource base away from iron ore. Working with the University of St Andrews, the team, led by Professor Steven Reddy from the Institute for Geoscience Research at Curtin’s Western Australian School of Mines, discovered the reidite in shocked zircon from impact ejecta at Stac Fada in Scotland. He said reidite is important because it is only known to form in nature during meteorite impact events. The hardware component of the project was funded via the Australian Research Council with support from Curtin University, the Geological Survey of Western Australia, University of Western Australia and Murdoch University. One avenue being considered is the public documentation of WA’s mineral resources. J., Curran M., Edwards R., Faluvegi G., Ghan S., Horowitz L. The project is being jointly run between the John de Laeter Centre, Curtin University Library and Curtin Information Technology Services. Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry, 29, 981-989. It is hoped that by allowing free, open access to this information, further interest in developing domestic mineral reserves will be stimulated and create a more varied and sustainable mineral economy.

In WA’s capital Perth, the state government is sitting on a collection of over 2,000 heavy mineral concentrate samples.
