The Application of Structural Geology for Exploration (Skilled)

The geologic structure affects the geometry of the rock body and determining its permeability and porosity properties. The Earth's crust deformation process due to litospheric plate movement and its response to erosion and sedimentation caused the rock is fractured, faulted or folded. The geologic structure of the rock would then become the path or conduit of the fluid such as hydrocarbon, geothermal, mineralization or ground water.

This Application of Structural Geology for Exploration Training offers a mastery of 3 main things related to the structural geology which are needed in the exploration design, (i) object: the type of the geologic structure and identification, (ii) process: the mechanism of the geologic structure formation on the rock and the factor that control it, (iii) data and interpretation: data sampling, analysis and interpretation method.
