AbstractFifteen subprojects aim to enhance the geoscience framework and EXploration TECHnology to calibrate typical ore, host-rock and alteration parameters of the world-class McArthur River camp as an aid to uranium exploration in the Athabasca Basin and elsewhere. Subprojects 6, 6a, 7, 9, 10, and 11, reported on here, are a blend of exploration technology with some framework elements, as follows: 6, 6a) calibration and interpretation of enigmatic U-K-Th domains and of a ribbon-shaped K-U anomaly in high-resolution airborne NATGAM (National Gamma-Ray Spectrometry Program) data; 7) mineralogical refinement of alteration vectors to ore and calibration of a new field infrared spectrometric device; 9) magnetotelluric imaging of conductive and altered zones; 10) gravimetric detection of basement highs and alteration zones; and 11) detrital-zircon and basement geochronology by SHRIMP (Sensitive High Resolution Ion Microprobe), documenting provenance of deposystems and timing of Paleoproterozoic basin development.
