Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Canada is a major mineral producer with 16% of the world¿s nickel, 7% of Platinum Group Elements (PGE) and 3% of both copper and cobalt. National-, district- and deposit-scale studies in this TGI4 project are focused on determining the key components necessary for detecting hidden or deeply buried nickel-copper-PGE and chromium mineralization. These ore deposits occur in highly variable geologic settings with complex geochemical, mineralogical and geophysical signatures that challenge exploration, particularly in the deeper or covered parts of established and emerging terrains.
