Research | Current
Currently, I'm working on a research topic entitled "structural and tectonic controls on the epithermal Au-Ag mineralisation in the Coromandel Volcanic Zone, Northern New Zealand, using a joint geological and Aeromagnetic data interpretations". The project mainly strives to understand the tectonic model of the Coromandel Volcanic Zone through mapping deep-seated basement faults which presumably reactivated in response the region's several tectonic reorganisations, affecting the overlying volcanic sequences. The research also attempts to understand the punctuated evolution of epithermal systems within the Coromandel Volcanic Zone in terms of the role of tectonic architecture and structural control on the localization of epithermal fluids at regional and district scales, and 3D stress modeling.
This work will have a great contribution to the current understanding of the controls of epithermal systems in the Coromandel Volcanic Zone and then help to develop better exploration techniques.
