<h2 class="heading hide-accessible">Summary</h2>

We are a multi-disciplinary group with broad research interests in both fundamental and applied studies into economic mineralization. We focus on the development of novel methods for exploration and deposit-specific studies of ore mineralization systems.

<h2 class="heading hide-accessible">Full description</h2>

<p>Our work spans from deposit specific studies to regional exploration and generic mineralization studies. We take a variety of approaches, from detailed gold mineralogy in placers, veins and their host rocks, to the wider structural controls of mineralization.</p> <p>We are keen to hear from prospective postgraduate researchers interested in an area of our <a href="">current expertise</a>.</p> <h3>Useful links and further reading:</h3> <ul> <li><a href="">Research degrees within the School of Earth and Environment</a></li> <li><a href="">Ores and Mineralization group</a></li> <li><a href="">School of Earth and Environment,&nbsp;Research&nbsp;and Innovation</a></li> </ul> <h3>Leeds Doctoral College</h3> <p>Our <a href="">Doctoral College</a> supports you throughout your postgraduate research journey.
