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 provides an update on fluid inclusion and microstructural studies aimed at determining the fluid composition, thermal conditions and fluid-structural relationships present during formation of the Phoenix deposit, Saskatchewan to better understand the formation of unconformity-related uranium deposits.
