|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. This poster presentation summarizes ongoing fluid-flow modelling of the southeastern portion of the Athabasca basin.
The fluid-flow modelling incorporates knowledge gained from the recent 3D model of this district (Li et al., 2013; GSC OF7426) to examine the role of faults in focusing uranium-bearing fluids to the ore deposit sites.
