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 documents the occurrence and mineral chemistry of the hydrothermal alteration mineral tourmaline from three mineral occurrences located in the Athabasca Basin that despite being proximal to each other, exhibit distinct metal endowments and textures. The observations provide further insights on processes of uranium enrichment in the Athabasca deposits.
