A short course on the why, how, and what of geophysical inversion
Presented by the B.C. Geophysical Society
This is a 2-day workshop consisting of 1 day of lectures (April 24th) followed by a 1 day hands-on workshop (either April 25th or 26th). Delegates can register for just the lectures or both the lectures and workshop.
Registration available until April 15th at: www.bcgsonline.org
Date: April 24th – 26th 2013

Registration: Registration is now open! Please fill out attached pdf form (link below) and click submit. Registration will be complete once payment is made via Paypal link. Delegates are asked to choose one workshop day among April 25th or 26th.
Day 1 – Introduction to inversion
– Introduction to inversion in exploration
Reasons for doing inversion
Range of inversion options: magnetics, gravity, EM, IP-resistivity, seismic
Fitting geology and data
– Background on inversion
Joint and collaborative
The future of inversion
– Before inversion – forward modeling
petrophysics drives the story
complexity vs. adequacy
– Case studies
Day 2 – Workshop with Case studies
Multi-disciplinary teams will use geological, geophysical and geochemical data from two deposits (Babine Lake porphyry Cu-Mo, BC and Minto Cu, YK) to develop exploration targets. Teams will present their evaluations of the data to stimulate group discussion.
Inversion results for the available geophysical surveys will be presented to demonstrate state-of-the-art technology and best practices.
