AbstractFifteen subprojects aim to enhance the geoscience framework and EXploration TECHnology for the world-class McArthur River camp as an aid to uranium exploration in the Athabasca Basin and elsewhere. Subprojects 1 to 5, reported on here, mainly serve as a framework to help focus technology: 1) seismic imaging of the stratigraphy, the unconformity, the P2 reverse-fault zone, possible alteration zones, the
orebody itself, and a deep reflector possibly representing a mafic sill and heat source for hydrothermal convection; 2) quantitative linking of geophysical and geological parameters by multiparameter borehole geophysics; 3) determination of the paragenesis of organic matter, both Proterozoic and Phanerozoic (but all postdating the ore and therefore not a guide); 4) establishment of a quantitative lithological and sequence-stratigraphic framework across drill camps and six regional deposystems; 5) mapping, simplifying, and correlating basement domains and their boundaries; and 4a / 5a) relating uranium to reactivation structures and sedimentary style in paleovalleys.
