Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The prospectivity model for the northern Great Bear magmatic zone is a prediction of regional mineral occurrences based on the geophysical properties of the rocks at known mineral occurrences. The geophysical properties include their magnetic character and their uranium, thorium and potassium concentrations, estimated from airborne geophysical surveys. In summary, at least twenty zones with a high prospectivity score have no known occurrences and may represent high priority targets for exploration. There are at least 150 zones with no known occurrences that have a moderately high prospectivity score, and these areas may also represent valid exploration targets.
