MGPalaeo in corporation with Darren Ferdinando (Basin Science) are running a two-day integrated core workshop focusing on the Permian and Early Triassic of the northern Perth Basin.

Nearly one kilometre of cores from fifteen wells, including Waitsia, Senecio, Dongara, Hovea, Corybas, Cliff Head and Dunsborough have been selected for detailed discussions with the aim on the integration of regional geology, sedimentology, palynology, and ichnology. A great variation of depositional environments and key surfaces will be examined during the two days.

Details are as follows:

Date: 23rd and 24th September 2021

Venue: Core Library DMP, 37 Harris Street, Carlisle

Costs: On request; Price includes a handout booklet and catering on both days.
