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 scientific poster presentation summarizes results of helium and radon sampling of groundwater over deeply-buried unconformity-related uranium deposits in the Athabasca Basin and discusses methods in which these gases migrate away from the ore zones.
