Biographic Sketch:
Mr. Anmol Barla, Assistant Professor of the Department of Geology, School of Earth Sciences, Central University of Tamil Nadu, Thiruvarur, since November 2022. He completed his M.Sc. from the National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, Odisha, in 2017, and he is pursuing Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Technology (Indian School of Mines), Dhanbad, in the fields of Economic geology, and ore geology. He completed his B.Sc. from St. Xavier’s College, Ranchi, Jharkhand, in 2014. He is working in the field of Economic Geology. The main interest is in the genesis of gold mineralization. To determine the genesis of this mineralization, he used the trace element geochemistry of the associated minerals and the host rock of the study area. He got the funding to participate in the 16th SGA Biennial Meeting, 2022. He is also selected for the field trip program (SFT-2021) organized by the Society of Economic Geology (SEG), USA. He got selected and funded to attend the workshop at University College Dublin (UCD), Dublin, Ireland, by ICRAG in 2019.

Research Highlights :

Anmol Barla is working in the fields of Economic geology, Ore geology, and the genesis of gold mineralization. He observed that two phases of Magnetite occur in the study area and observed unique features in the magnetite-II (Mag-II), core having chromite rich zone and a rim formed with magnetite. The gold, pyrite, and Mag-II form in the latter stage of deformation. The geochemistry of mag-II and the host rock shows similarity, which suggests that the host rock geochemistry was the main control of the chemistry of Mag-II. To know the trace element concentration of the mineral, we are using different instruments and methods, such as, SEM, EPMA, LA-ICP-MS, and ICP-AES.
