PNG LNG supporting PNG’s future geologists through learning

THE study of the earth’s physical formation, its composition and the various components that continuously sees the earth evolving is still new science for Papua New Guinea. Added to that, the natural landscape of PNG presents it as one of the most exciting geological terrains in the world which the University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) through its Geoscience department is scratching the surface of. UPNG offers the Geology and

K92 hits high-grade gold in Kora North extension drilling campaign

K92 Mining Inc. has hit a number of high-grade intersections from the continuing diamond drilling of the Kora North Extension of the Kainantu gold mine in Papua New Guinea.

Kingston feeling upbeat on Quartz Mountain potential at historic Misima Gold mine

KINGSTON Resources Limited has completed an updated geological model for the Quartz Mountain region, part of its 2.8Moz Misima Gold Project in PNG, to incorporate recent drilling and exploration data. An extensive internal review of existing Quartz Mountain geological data complemented by recent Kingston drilling, geochemical data and structural mapping has concluded that mineralisation in the area is primarily structurally controlled. Previous interpretations had mineralisation controlled by lithological contacts between

Searcher completes Airborne Geophysical Survey in Papua New Guinea

SEARCHER Seismic has announced the completion of the regional multi-client airborne gravity, gravity-gradiometry and magnetics survey covering the transition zone of the Gulf of Papua. The Roho Airborne Gravity, Gravity-Gradiometry and Magnetic Survey covers approximately 60,700 square kilometres (~52,700line km) along the southern coast of PNG. The survey compliments several marine seismic and geochemical projects recently completed by Searcher aimed at assessing the hydrocarbon potential of the Gulf of Papua

Woodmac says oil and gas exploration’s back in the black – and keen to stay there
