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 presentation (poster) discusses fluid dynamics during formation of unconformity-related uranium deposits in the Athabasca Basin as supported by numerical modelling results of fluid pressure and convection patterns, and links these hypotheses to observed geochemical signatures in the sedimentary rocks.
