Biography

Dr Patrick Hayman is an Earth Scientist with over 15 years experience working as a researcher, lecturer and exploration geologist. After finishing his BSc and MSc in Canada and working for several diamond exploration and mining companies, he moved to Australia to pursue a PhD on kimberlites – an unusual type of volcano that erupts diamonds. Following that, he spent two years as an Assistant Lecturer and then worked as a Research Fellow on a three-year collaborative project focusing on Archean geology. Pat is now employed at QUT as a Lecturer in the School of Earth Environment and Biological Sciences.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Current Research:

  • Leading the Volcanology Module of West African Exploration Initiative (WAXI), a large collaborative research initiative: http://www.tectonique.net/waxi3/
  • Volcano-sedimentary reconstruction of the host succession at Wallaby Gold Mine (2 year project sponsored by Gold Fields)
  • Internal architecture of Archean dolerites (follow-on work research as a post-doctoral fellow on ARC linkage project LP110200747; Prospectivity of late Archean basaltic and gabbroic rocks associated with major gold and base-metal deposits)
  • Lithological and structural controls on mineralised fluid flow in volcanic settings: a case study of the Mount Rawdon epithermal gold deposit (1-year project sponsored by Evolution Mining)

Teaching

  • Earth Materials (ERB205); Unit Coordinator: Earth Materials comprises the study of minerals and rocks which form the solid Earth. The study of Earth Materials is essential for understanding the structure and composition of the earth and the detailed processes of the rock cycle. Earth Materials forms the basis for petrology (the study of the genesis of rocks) and geochemistry.
  • Geological Field Methods (ERB305); Lecturer: Field experience is an essential part of the professional training of geologists, environmental scientists and natural resource specialists in general. The theory and practice of methods to map, measure and interpret important geological features and characteristics are essential to the study of geology. Methods of mapping, orientation and interpretation are necessary skills for resource assessment, geo-exploration and environmental impact assessment.
  • Earth’s Mineral Resources (ERB306); Unit Coordinator: Australia’s wealth and future economic growth depend largely on its natural resources. A mineral resource represents an enrichment of an element or mineral that can be mined, processed and rehabilitated with financial and social benefit. The natural enrichment of an element or mineral to the levels of a mineral resource requires specific and complex interplay of a variety of geological processes. Thus, mineral resource exploration, delineation and extraction require skilled application of basic geological concepts and an appreciation of social implications.
