Steven Micklethwaite leads research into the application of geoscience and innovative technologies across the mining value chain.

He was Discovery Manager (Australia) for Anglo America where the focus was exploration in challenging undercover environments. He previously founded and directed the Drone Discovery Platform a drone-based remote sensing infrastructure facility at Monash University.

Steve serves on Auscope’s Science Advisory Committee, and the Steering Committee for the Australia’s Scalable Drone Cloud (ASDC) initiative and previously served on the Queensland Resources Council working groups for Pristine Rivers legislation and Data Confidentiality, as well as the Industry Advisory Board, for EGRU, James Cook University.

Steven’s career has spanned exploration, consultancy and research, involving mapping on four continents and developing technical expertise in innovative approaches to exploration, mineral systems science, undercover environments, structure and tectonics.

This month, PESA QLD is happy to welcome  Steven Micklethwaite to present an evening technical talk entitled “Digital Earth – towards a digital twin of Queensland geoscience information”.

The Evening Presentation will be held at the Transcontinental Hotel, on the Platform level with drinks and finger food served in the Dining Hall and Deck Area.

Presentation Abstract:

Digital Earth – towards a digital twin of Queensland geoscience information

Australia’s federal and state geological surveys have undergone a transformation in the acquisition and provision of data for minerals exploration, through programs such as the >$100M Exploring for the Future initiative.

In Queensland, this step-change has been accompanied by the modernisation and transformation of legacy data into easily consumed digital formats.

Large volumes of precompetitive data are now available to industry and have been instrumental in attracting investment and enabling companies to identify regions for exploration.

However, massive data also presents a challenge in how it can be discovered and accessed, as well as the inability to visualise such data in a single environment due to hardware limitations.

In this project, we apply technology originally developed for the gaming industry to build a visualisation environment that takes advantage of the vast volumes of available geoscience data.

The project is a collaboration between the Sustainable Minerals Institute, Euclideon and the Queensland Department of Resources.

The objectives were to automatically consume and visualise geological, geophysical, geochemical and infrastructure data so that the minerals exploration industry can easily access, search and use it as an interpretation and decision-making tool.
