Groundwater contaminants in reef catchments

Dr Lucy Reading (Senior Lecturer, Queensland University of Technology)
Water quality monitoring in the Great Barrier Reef catchments typically focuses on runoff and surface water flows. Come tonight to find out about research focusing on sub-surface pathways for nutrient and pesticide transport to the Great Barrier Reef.

Dr Reading is leading groundwater monitoring and research projects in the Great Barrier Reef catchments and the Gold Coast Hinterland in Queensland. Her works aims to achieve an improved understanding of groundwater in Australia.

Mineral systems of Cape York, Queensland

Ms Courteney Dhnaram (Geoscientist, Geological Survey of Queensland)
Why are we interested in the timing and genesis of widespread gold mineralisation within the Cape York region? Understanding how, when and why these deposits formed provides context for mineral explorers to discover new deposits. That's why!

Courteney Dhnaram has worked as a geologist with the Geological Survey of Queensland for 14 years. She has contributed to a number of regional to camp scale projects within Queensland, focusing on characterising gold and copper-gold mineral systems.
