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 contrasts the elemental associations between two nearby mineral occurrences in the Athabasca basin with distinct metal endowments (REE-rich versus U-rich) to gain insights on the conditions and processes that created the Athabasca uranium deposits.
