This database, VMSSEDEX in MS-Access[TM]-2.0 format, was created specifically for the compilation of geological, geochemical and economic data of volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) and sedimentary exhalative (Sedex) mineral deposits. The structure of the data base is versatile, and is easily adaptable to other deposit types. It consists of three tiers: DISTRICT SCALE: regional information which is applicable to all deposits in the district (e.g. geographical information; regional stratigraphy; geological province) DEPOSIT SCALE: information on a single geological deposit (e.g. grade and tonnage, geochemical and geophysical signatures; alteration; deposit scale zonation; local stratigraphy). LENS SCALE: information on geologically distinct parts of the deposit such as individual massive sulphide lenses and stockwork zones. The geological and geochemical data include those parameters compiled at the lens scale plus parameters such as physical dimensions. The data base consists of about eighty tables plus various pick-lists and data entry forms. Also included in the compressed file is a software module called VMS.MDB. Running of this module modifies some database forms to give extra menu bar buttons that enable the user to create extra tables that calculate aggregate grade and tonnage figures for production, economic reserves, sub-economic reserves and geological resource at the deposit scale and total economic resource and total geological resource at both the deposit and district scales. Also included in the compressed file is an ENDNOTE[TM]-2.0 database of references for each entry in the VMSSEDEX data base. These references have also been included as a table of text strings in VMSSEDEX to facilitate quick retrieval of the data source.
