Personal profile


Fariba Kohanpour has completed her PhD in February 2019 in the Centre for Exploration Targeting under supervision of Drs. Sandra Occhipinti, Weronika Gorzcyk, Mark Lindsay and Chris Kirkland. Her project focused on defining nickel and gold mineral systems in the Halls Creek Orogen, Western Australia by applying geodynamic numerical modelling, geophysical interpretation, isotope analysis and mineral systems prospectivity modelling. Her thesis provides insight into the processes which operated at plate margins and Paleoproterozoic orogen that welded North Australian and Kimberley cratons. She developed an approach to predict the isotopic evolutionary pattern for different tectonic settings based on the integration of the numerical models and worldwide isotopic datasets. Applying a multidisciplinary approach helped her to reveal the links between gold and nickel mineral systems in the Halls Creek Orogen. Since March 2019 she has started her postdoc for investigating geodynamics of Paterson region as a part of MRIWA project.
