Sandra Occhipinti is the Research Director of Discovery CSIRO Mineral Resources. Sandra is a structural geologist with over 30 years of experience. Discovery is focussed on solving challenges faced in the mineral industry through innovative science and technology, through collaborative research and development through the integration of a multidisciplinary and diverse team. Sandra has worked across the government, industry and academia sectors – most notably for the Geological Survey of Western Australia, The University of Western Australia and AngloGold Ashanti. Her recent work in Mineral Systems science uses key concepts and understanding of the development of mineral deposits through geologic history, dependent on factors such as the operating tectonics, local conditions (including climatic zones), controls on fluid flow, to name a few. Discovery partners with Data 61 and groups such as the Deep Earth Imaging Future Science Platform to find the best solutions to problems we face today, and provide solutions that we can use in the future in exploration for minerals and water, and for more efficient and sustainable, and environmentally responsible mining.
