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 characterizes the elemental assemblages and geochemical signatures associated with uranium mineralization of the Phoenix deposit and rare earth element mineralization in the nearby Maw Zone, refining geostatistical tools for targeting potential areas of concealed uranium mineralization in the Athabasca basin.
