Research interests

Derek Wyman's research includes studies in Western Australia's Yilgarn Craton and similar well-mineralised rocks in Canada. He also supervises Honours and Postgraduate students in studies of granitic rocks, gold deposits, massive sulphides and other types of mineralization in eastern Australia and Papua New Guinea.

Derek maintains strong links with national and international research teams, as exemplified by his collaborative research with P. Hollings (Lakehead University, Canada) and the Ontario Geological Survey. This work focuses Archean granites and the world's oldest in situ diamond deposits (2.7 billion year old) that challenge conventional models of diamond formation.

A China-sponsored year-long visit by Dr Wang Qiang (Guangzhou Institute of Geochemistry) in 2005 initiated a strong new collaborative effort on the petrology of a wide variety of igneous suites in China. The studies explore the relationship of these rocks to ore deposits and China's tectonic history. This collaborative research has involved joint fieldwork in Xinjiang, Tibet and Hunan in 2006, 2007 and 2009 and provides new insights into magmatism in the ancient mountain belts of Australia and the world.
