Project Number
M0358
Total Grant Value
$937,720
Project Theme
Mineral Systems
Project Period
2003 - 2005

Summary

The premise of this project was that the fluid history of an ore system is reflected by the thermo-chemical gradients and consequently, research on alteration and geochemistry of gold systems combined with research on their architecture and dynamics would enhance explorationists’ ability to predict large tonnage, high-grade gold occurrences.

The numerous report conclusions include improved understanding of multi-fluid flow in ore systems, and mechanisms of high-grade deposition.

This research was continued in M0377.

Keywords: gold deposits, ore system fluid, mineral fluid flow, high-grade gold ore, giant ore deposits
