The Map that Changed the World

by Simon Winchester

B0001EMI7I

To me this is a magical book looking at the work of William Smith an canal engineer who set the foundations of geology in the early part of the nineteenth century by creating the first modern style geological map of the united Kingdom.  The book outlines how Smith came to understand the link between his work in creating the series of canal that revolutionised transport of goods of the early part of the industrial revolution with the rocks that were being excavated to form the canal in southern and midland areas of the united Kingdom.

My career as a Geologist

End of School and Advice to Pursue a Career in Geology

My first knowledge that geology existed as a career was following the completion of high school when I had just completed all the required exams to gain access to university but had no idea what studies to pursue.   I went to see my mother’s cousin who headed up a coaching college in Brisbane.  He had a BSc in science from the University of Queensland, so I considered him a good mentor.  At the time I was very enthusiastic to find out my direction in studying something in the science field, but had no specific idea what that would be.   He suggested studying geology and outlined a 50/50 split between office work and work in the fresh air.  I was gobsmacked – I was unaware that a choice like that existed in science so I enrolled with the purpose of seeing parts of the world that few people ever see and looking forward to the adventure.

Starting out in the Geological Survey of Queensland

My first employment in 1969 was in the coal section at the Geological Survey of Queensland  (GSQ), Redbank and encompassed coal resources projects in the Ipswich Coalfield.  The Ipswich coalfield was beginning to wind down as exploration and pressures of urban expansion had already affected development of deeper resources in this field as development of the Bowen Basin coals began to ramp up.  I was appreciative of  the well researched standards that established by the GSQ and the mentoring and advice given to new staff at GSQ.  This was a feature of all my career in GSQ.  Initial work included drilling and logging coal and strata near Swanbank Power Station, within Ipswich city and in Redbank Plains with geological mapping  in the area.  Part of my work included underground logging of the Bluff seam at Box Flat Extended Mine area where there was an explosion with several deaths a couple of years later.  I became aware that although I enjoyed core logging I was mainly confined to an office at Redbank with local work in the Ipswich region.

Change to Geological Mapping and finding a niche

Work in the coal section lasted until late 1970 when, based on my enjoyment of  geological mapping from work at Redbank, I applied to join the Regional Mapping Branch in the city so that I could spend significant amounts of time away from the office enjoying the experience of creating new geological maps.   The initial mapping project was the Ipswich and Brisbane 1:250 000 sheet areas.  This style of mapping was very different from the detailed mapping undertaken at university and required a different approach.  This was the time of generation of new knowledge including the understanding and acceptance of plate tectonics and earth processes.  Due to its geographic location close to the capital city many student and published maps and reports needed to be assessed in context with the new paradigm.  This assessment and later work showed a major fundamental flaw in the existing mapping in that map boundaries from adjacent  areas didn’t generally join at the boundaries, because different geologists didn’t classify  geological units in the same way. Consequently there were ‘splitters’ (geologists who recognised different units and sub units) and ‘lumpers’ (who made broader subdivisions where there may be several units) in the game of geological mapping

The process of regional geological mapping commenced in the early 1950s through the Bureau of Mineral Resources (BMR) now Geoscience Australia (GA).  Much of the land area of Australia was mapped prior to the early satellite imagery however, the access to this imagery assisted the first mapping project and later projects in identifying major regional scale geological linear features.  The quality of the early images was poor and was only available as black and white photographs

Further Studies in Geology and Geography

In 1970 I undertook study to complete a MSc qualifying at University of Queensland while working full time at GSQ.  My intention at that time was to complete a MSc and continue on to a PhD.  However my plans were modified by family commitments and from 1973 to 1977 I studied  geography subjects available at the University of Queensland and french and German Language.  Knowledge is never wasted and study of physical geography and geography of natural land forms and human interaction and demographics formed  part of my work in my chosen career.

During the 1970s and early 1980s work at GSQ involved local field mapping at both 1:250 000 at 1:100 000 scales, extensive stratigraphic drilling and analysis of basins of southeast Queensland and field trips and discussions about economic and industrial minerals in southeast Queensland.  At this time digital processing technology was evolving and I was  trained in the first image processing technology used by the Queensland government.

Digital Image processing and creation of digital maps

As   digital image processing technology evolved to assist geological mapping the link between digital site information  from the work of the Canadian Geological Survey led to creating GSQ databases, to my interest in this technology and with other GSQ geologists databases based on point data – Surface geology and Mineral occurrence databses were formed at GSQ.  These databases were leaders in government geoscience in Australia with GA following up with their own system.  During this time the digital topographic information and imagery was under the control of AUSLIG based in Canberra. At this time there were a range of restrictions and huge expense of acquiring and using this imagery.  Frustrations  with the cost and access to this data resulted in a proposal to Geoscience Australia about the restrictions, use and cost of this data.  Other states also had the same concerns and put in similar submissions.  This led to GA’s incorporation of AUSLIG and the ongoing cost-effective and efficient use of digital data in geological maps and GIS products.

I  became absolutely convinced that GSQ need image processing technology and implementation coincided with digital image processing of geophysical data so that this technology was implemented in GSQ. Linking databases to imagery in geographic information systems (GIS) technology allowed GSQ to create geology maps and update them from that time and integrate geological map data, imagery and resources to model the spatial location and geological processes that control mineral and energy resources.  The interest in GIS, databases and processing airborne geophysics led me to complete a MSc in remote sensing, geology and mineral occurrence to understand spatial relationships of gold mineralisation in the Charters Towers which incidentally published when I work at the University of Hong Kong.

The use of image processing and creation of databases it still became more obvious that mapping edge joins were an issue and a new approach was necessary to both resolve map boundary joins and the differences in interpretation .  From this I evolved the idea of digital seamless geological GIS projects.

In the early 1990s I worked in processing airborne geophysics and satellite imagery for the province mapping carried out along the eastern coastal and near coastal areas.  This increased my knowledge of airborne geophysics and the integration with satellite imagery, maps and databases.

Restructuring, Geoscience GIS  and GSQ management roles

A restructure of GSQ and a downturn in the mining industry in the mid-late 1990s provided the impetus for a new approach to creating seamless maps and reports of large areas.  At that time, as geoscience manager Southeast Queensland Project and with GSQ and unemployed industry geologists on contract I evolved a methodology to enter information from old note books and mineral occurrences into databases, linked these to existing geology and discovered ways to interactively validate and improve and link the existing geology.  This resulted in  GSQ’s first geoscience GIS product – the Southeast Queensland GIS and the change by GSQ to province mapping projects in Queensland and creating maps from the project – Faster, better and more efficiently.  Following work on the Yarraman project that occurred in the late 1990s to 2000 new geological maps and a more efficient reporting style was implemented and improvements in the mapping were included in an extended update of the southeast Queensland GIS.  The role of Geoscience Manager Southern region in DNRM had different and unexpected links to land use management

Tenement Management management in Government

In 2002 I had a change of roles to be the project leader leading management of assessment of exploration tenure for the department and reporting directly to the minister that arose on major projected mining projects.  The This experience assisted me in may later role in Mineral Resources Authority Papua New Guinea.

Experiences in China and Hong Kong

The 2000s were a really interesting time in my career and life. I went to Hangzhou China and  voluntarily taught English conversation for two months and in 2003 I took long service leave and went to the University of Hong Kong where I created a course in field techniques, report writing methods, air photo interpretation, remote sensing and the use of GIS technology in geoscientific projects.  This time was very satisfying as I could impart my knowledge of being a practicing geologist and see the development of the next generation of geologists in a different environment where the only local employment available was in government geotechnical work. This was an interesting time as it coincided with the SARS outbreak in southern China and for a time the university was closed and I lectured to a room of students who were all wearing surgical masks.

I returned to Brisbane in late 2003.  While  absent in Hong Kong, another restructure of GSQ recreated functional groups to put the best staff in their preferred roles.  Upon returning to GSQ from Hong Kong I was appointed Geoscience Manager, Mineral Resource Studies.  This role provided another and different challenge for me as I needed to upgrade my skills to managing a different group of geologists who had been carrying out this role since 1987.

MINOCC, The Pmd*CRC and  National Geochemistry Survey

The period from 2003 to 2009 was very satisfying as the Mineral Resource Studies group which completed the first pass of the mineral resources of the state.  The method included  locating as many as possible of historical working and current operations as possible from the remaining areas not already covered in previous field campaigns.  This this was done on a Province basis similar to that for geological mapping.  In this process some areas were updated with better located GPS technology and all areas were updated from annual reporting over mining areas.  In this period, GSQ became a partner in the predictive mineral discoveries cooperative research (Pmd*CRC).  This project looked at mineral deposits somewhat analogously to energy resources using the creation of mineralising fluids, identifying and predicting fluid flows to the site of deposition and the identification of mineralised regions that that were much larger than the know mineral deposits.  A better understanding of the age and chemistry of potential fluids, direction of fluid flows, dilatant zones and host rock chemistry and the timing of mineralisation was required to better understand mineralised systems.  To this end a geochemist role was created in the group, a project to acquire age dating of source rocks from university theses was required and funded by GSQ.  An interesting project completed by Mineral Resource Studies at that time was the Queensland contribution to the National Geochemical Survey of Australia. This study  incorporated a regional geochemical study of drainage basins of Australia for basins.  Information gained from this study identified significant areas in Cape York that have been followed up in later surveys. Due to staff numbers I undertook fieldwork in Cape York in 2008, collected samples and went to the most northerly point of the Australian mainland north of Bamaga  Here I looked out towards Papua New Guinea and  wondered what it would be like to visit there.  Much to my surprise it was sooner than I thought.

Papua New Guinea (PNG) A New Adventure 2009-2012

In early 2009 when acting as Director, GSQ due to an overseas trip by the Director I was contacted by the current Executive Manager, Geological Survey Division, Mineral Resources Authority, Papua New Guinea who made a request for GSQ to review mapping by an European Union (EU) funded GEOMAP project in the western highlands of PNG.  He told me that he was leaving MRA to return to the university.  The next week there was an advertisement for Executive Manager, Geological Survey Division   in Port Moresby and, with Mineral Resources Studies  having completed the first pass mineral resources of Queensland, I thought it was time for a new challenge.  From 2009-2012 the role of  Executive manager  was very satisfying  as due to the state of the industry and funding there were opportunities to upgrade staff skills through their completion of Masters degrees at Australian and European Universities.  This period also was characterised by the creation of a geothermal energy group in conjunction with Geological and Nuclear Sciences (GNS) in New Zealand and MOUs with the GNS to carry out collaborative geothermal chemical studies and China Geological Survey to train staff to collect samples for a national geochemical survey.  In addition, the geological mapping from the  funded  GEOMAP was reviewed and joined to mapping by GA over PNG.  As a member of the Mining Advisory council in PNG I reviewed the program for all applications for granting and renewal of tenure in PNG from 2009-2012.

Family issues caused my return to Western Australia in late 2012, however before departing PNG I realised that there was a need to train staff in another area of MRA to better assess company reporting.  Consequently, I wrote a proposal for contract work before departing PNG.

In 2013, I spent several periods in PNG training staff in identifying issues with company reporting and developed a guide for this process.  Other work carried out was developing a methodology to assess the validity of statistical information from the mining industry for the Sovereign Wealth Fund, assessed several applications for new mining leases and updates of existing mining lease and recommended a new tenure management system from Spatial Dimensions (now Trimble) from South Africa.

Major Bust In The Mining Industry -2013-2014

The collapse of the mining industry in 2014 was an issue for geologists globally and I thought at the time I was going to retire, however due to family issues again I returned to Queensland and was relaxing on the Sunshine Coast not thinking about working when I received two offers in successive days.

Surat Basin and Mongolia consultancies 2015-2017

Consultancies include Surat Basin mapping of the outcrop and subcrop of the coal seam gas units in the Surat basin and  as a international expert in Mongolia to recreate a national geological survey (NGS).  I undertook the Surat Basin Project and work on this project from September 2015, and it was published in July 2017.  This project showed the values of airborne geophysics for upgrading surface and subsurface mapping and the linking of databases of borehole intersections and magnetics to subsurface mapping.  Two months in Mongolia and completed recommendations for the role of a National Geological Survey.

Current interests and direction 2018-2019

My goals are to continue to work at tourism and geology applications and at further developing GIS and imagery with databases and with industry partners to link artificial intelligence to data to allow the capacity to identify and solve impediments to development of a resource and to best inform investors in the mining industry of the real risks of mining projects to give them greater confidence in projects. Geological undertaken in this period include the updating of clay resources for brick manufacture, water resources in intake areas of local basins.

In 2018 and 2019 I completed a course to qualify as a webmaster and digital marketer to develop and update websites  for local business and aspects of the mining industry and to create a site to deliver geohistory tourism to a global community.  To date I continue to develop several  websites based on geology, geohistory tourism for communities and education and shopping sites based on exercise, diet, wealth for the pursuit of happiness and all aspects a healthy lifestyle.
