ProgramTargeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI-4) Volcanogenic Massive Sulfide Ore Systems
Released2016 05 31
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. The processes controlling gold enrichment in volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits are often debated, limiting effective exploration for such prime exploration targets in Canada. The study of the Ming Cu-Au-(Zn-Ag) volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit in Newfoundland Appalachians through the TGI-4 Program provides a unique opportunity to improve genetic and exploration models for gold-enriched volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits, contributing to the Program¿s objectives of providing geoscience to stimulate exploration.
