CRC ORE Early Career Researcher - Nathaly Guerrero


CRC ORE early career researcher Nathaly Guerrero describes her work in predictive geometallurgical controls on grade-by-size fractionation in gold systems. Nathaly's research project aims to evaluate the geological controls on fractionation by understanding the role of mineralogy, texture and paragenesis in influencing rock breakage and natural fractionation at a range of scales. This project is executed in rocks of core samples and bulk samples sourced from the Gramalote Project, located in Colombia.

Nathaly completed a degree in Geological Engineering at the Universidad Central del Ecuador. After completing her Bachelor degree, Nathaly started work as a full time Junior geologist at the Cascabel Cu-Au porphyry in northern Ecuador. While working at Cascabel, Nathaly was involved in geological, alteration and mineralisation logging activities. She then became part of the database team, where she oversaw the analysis and interpretation of spectral data from rock, drill cores and soil samples, to develop the alteration model of Cascabel. After Nathaly completes her Masters at the University of Tasmania, she would like to remain in the mining industry to use the knowledge acquired during her candidature. This would enable her to provide support for the industry to gain maximum value from commodities

CRC ORE is established and supported under the Cooperative Research Centres program, an Australian Government Initiative.
