The Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA) maps the geology of our state to produce robust interpretations of tectonic setting, crustal architecture and geological evolution that can be fed into regional exploration models.
Field-based, regional geological mapping programs are spread across the diverse geology of Western Australia.
Our approach is multidisciplinary combining:
- igneous and metamorphic petrology
- geochronology and isotope studies
- structural geology
- geophysical interpretation
- basin studies
- mineralization studies
- regolith studies
