Dr Mark Aylmore, recently appointed to take on the role of Applied Mineralogist in the Jd LC, chaired the workshop that included presentations from: • Dr Kamran Khajehpour (AXT), who gave an overview of automated mineralogy and supported by Esben Kjaer (Struers) who gave a brief overview on sample preparation techniques.
• Prof Brent Mc Innes (Curtin Jd LC), who demonstrated the applications of the TIMA to Archeology, Petrology, Geochemical Mapping, and the Characterisation of Mineral & Petroleum Systems.
Working with the University of St Andrews, the team, led by Professor Steven Reddy from the Institute for Geoscience Research at Curtin’s Western Australian School of Mines, discovered the reidite in shocked zircon from impact ejecta at Stac Fada in Scotland.
He said reidite is important because it is only known to form in nature during meteorite impact events.
However, the record of Precambrian impacts is poorly constrained due to the dynamic nature of plate tectonics, erosion and deposition of younger rocks, which may destroy or cover the evidence of ancient impacts. After delivering a presentation on their recently completed Digital Mineralogy Library project, the Jd LC hosts invited their visitors to offer feedback and discuss opportunities for new projects to further assist researchers in managing and disseminating high-value geochemistry datasets.

The reidite was discovered using advanced mineral characterisation technologies housed in the John De Laeter Centre (Jd LC) at Curtin University. The response was positive with many participants sharing their views on the importance of data management and discovery, and recognising the contribution that the Jd LC has made in this area.

Special thanks goes to Petrina Beeton who organised the venue, catering and parking.
With the success of this function it is anticipated further workshops on automated mineralogy will be held on an annual basis.
In WA’s capital Perth, the state government is sitting on a collection of over 2,000 heavy mineral concentrate samples.
