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. Determining the age of gold deposits represents a critical step in evaluating the prospectivity of regions and structures. However, dating gold directly is typically impossible (gold is mono-isotopic) and thus dating studies must rely on minerals that are closely associated with gold. In this contribution, we identify suitable minerals for mineral dating at the Meliadine Gold District, Nunavut.
