8:30 AM – 4:30 PM
Delineation of regional and local fault networks, which gravity and magnetic data enable, is crucial in both conventional and unconventional exploration and production. In frontier regions, these data help to delineate the raised and subsided crustal blocks and depocenters, as well as the distribution of igneous rocks.
The course reviews all stages of gravity and magnetic survey design, as well as data acquisition and geological interpretation. These steps are put in the context of designing and executing overall exploration programs for both conventional and unconventional targets.
A complete set of course materials and lunch is included in this course.

He was born in St. Petersburg, Russia and moved to Calgary as a teenager. He holds a B.Sc. in geology and geophysics (1985, University of Calgary), an M.Sc. in geophysics (1988, University of Calgary) and a Ph.D. in geology (1992, University of British Columbia). He is the first or sole author of three books (Springer-Verlag) on the regional geology and geophysics of western Canada, two gravity and magnetic atlases of the Alberta Basin (Alberta Geological Survey) and many papers. He is a member of CSEG, MEG and APEGA.
Henry is a past president of the Mineral Exploration Group, a province-wide mining-industry association in Alberta. To avoid the downtown rat-race and congestion, he works from home, enjoys the free space of the Alberta outdoors, and loves nothing better than in-depth history books and good hikes in the mountains.
