Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report includes the results of analyses of rhenium in molybdenites from 180 Canadian mineral deposits and occurrences. Also included are analyses of heavy mineral concentrates from sediment-hosted copper deposits in which molybdenite is not present, or at least not recognized, but which contain significant rhenium. The primary objectives of this study were to characterize rhenium contents in a wide spectrum of deposits and to examine variations within individual deposit types. The results show that porphyry deposits, particularly porphyry copper and copper-gold deposits, have some of the highest overall contents of rhenium and the highest concentrations of rhenium in molybdenite. In these and other granite-related deposits, the content of rhenium in molybdenite is inversely proportional to the molybdenum grade of the deposit. The results also show that large sediment-hosted copper deposits can contain nearly as much rhenium as porphyry deposits.
