AbstractSummaries of the main geological characteristics of 40 Canadian mineral deposit types are presented in a systematic format. About one half of these deposit types account for the bulk of Canadian metal and industrial mineral production. The definition of a mineral deposit type is based on recognition of a group of deposits whose geological features are sufficiently similar that they suggest a common genesis, whether or not the genesis is well understood. The summaries list contained commodities and names of example deposits, and outline economic significance, typical size and grade of orebodies, geological setting, host rocks, associated rocks, form and distribution of mineralization, minerals present, age, genetic models, and guides to exploration. A selected bibliography provides an introduction to the relevant literature.
