Helge Behnsen

Helge’s PhD project will test established magma fertility concepts to evaluate the potential for subsurface porphyry Cu-Au(-Mo) deposit(s) linked to the Mount Carlton high-sulfidation epithermal Au-Ag-Cu deposit and proximal prospects hosted by the early Permian Lizzie Creek Volcanics group. Using whole-rock major and trace element geochemistry and isotope geochemistry, he will gain new implications on magma fertility and genesis of this volcanic suite and the geological history of north east Queensland.
