Basic structure course

Covers basic structural tools and skills common to all terrane types and situations plus sufficient theoretical background to handle anomalous structures

Instructor:Rod Holcombe or Tim Coughlin

Mineralisation is anomalous, and anomalous structures are common around mineralisation. Our aim is to provide structural competence for the field or underground geologist plus sufficient theoretical background to be able to understand and deal effectively with unexpected structures that don't follow 'textbook' rules. The key concepts are time (generations of structures) and strain (bulk distortion pattern). Although one mode of deformation such as folding, cleavage or thrust faulting might dominate to produce the distortion (strain) in a deformation event, all other deformation modes can locally link up to accommodate irregularities at all scales.
