  • South Flank: Anatomy of a BIF-Hosted Martite-Goethite Ore System from the Hamersley Province, Western Australia
  • Geodynamic Setting of Komatiite-Hosted Fe-Ni-Cu Sulfide Deposits of the Agnew-Wiluna Belt, Yilgarn Block, Western Australia


Caroline Perring was educated at Cambridge University and the Royal School of Mines but has spent most of her career working in the Archaean Yilgarn craton of Western Australia. She completed a Ph.D. degree at the University of Western Australia in the field of mesothermal Au mineralization before joining the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). Apart from a brief stint at James Cook University, working on Fe oxide Cu-Au deposits, she spent the next 25 years studying magmatic Ni-Cu sulfide mineralization and komatiite volcanism, latterly with Western Mining Corporation and then BHP Billiton Nickel West. She is now a principal geologist with BHP’s WA Iron Ore division.
