Watch: Metal Earth, Mineral Exploration Research Project

Metal Earth is a Canadian $104 million applied R&D program led by Laurentian University. With funding from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund and federal/provincial/industry partners, this initiative will be a strategic consortium of outstanding Canadian researchers from academia and allied Canadian and international research centres, government, and industry.

Geology, genesis, and exploration for magmatic and magmatichydrothermal ore deposits

Geology, genesis, and exploration for magmatic and magmatichydrothermal ore deposits

The mining industry continually needs new ideas and models to focus scarce exploration funds to the most prospective areas containing the next generation of ore deposits. The purpose of this 1-day short course is to provide a state-of-the-art update on the geology, genesis, and exploration for magmatic and magmatichydrothermal ore deposits, including ultramafic-mafic associated Ni-Cu-(PGE), PGE-(Cu)-(Ni), Cr, and Fe-TiV systems, and intermediate-felsic associated porphyry Cu-Mo-Au. Each topic will include theory (magma fertility, magma emplacement, metal transport, deposition) and world-class case studies. Emphasis will be placed on updated/expanded interpretations of relatively new deposit types (e.g., conduit-hosted Ni-Cu-PGE and Cr systems, post-subduction porphyry Cu-Au) and variations to models that may open new exploration opportunities.
