AbstractThese short course notes provide an overview of published literature on the use of scheelite and wolframite as indicator minerals for W, Mo, and Au exploration. The use of scheelite and wolframite in stream sediments is well documented for mineral exploration but less so for using glacial sediments (Table 1). The Geological Survey of Canada has recently conducted a glacial till and stream sediment indicator mineral case study around the Sisson W-Mo deposit in eastern Canada. Preliminary indicator mineral results from this ongoing study are reported here.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Targeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI-4) is a collaborative federal geoscience program that provides industry with the next generation of geoscience knowledge and innovative techniques to better detect buried mineral deposits, thereby reducing some of the risks of exploration. These short course notes describe indicator mineral methods for mineral exploration for tunsgten-molybdenum deposits using glacial or stream sediments.
