ProgramTargeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI-4), Mafic-Ultramafic Ore Systems
AbstractThe fourth phase of the Targeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI-4) is a five-year (2010-2015) collaborative federal geoscience program with a mandate to employ public geoscience in the development of new geoscience knowledge and techniques in support of more effective exploration for buried ore deposits.
This contribution highlights major components of the magmatic nickel-copper-platinum group elements (PGE)-chromium project conducted under the TGI-4 program and implemented in collaboration with provincial and territorial governments and agencies, academia and mineral industry sectors. More specifically, this article summarizes the program objectives, gives an overview of the project objectives and main themes, and includes discussion of targeted areas, with a special emphasis on those taking place in Ontario.
