The Targeted Geoscience Initiative 4 (TGI-4) was a five year (2010-2015) research program by Natural Resources Canada to conduct collaborative,
multidisciplinary, thematic, and knowledge-driven ore systems studies aimed at assisting in the discovery of future resources through more effective targeting of buried mineral deposits in Canada's established and emerging mining camps.
Canada's major ore systems were studied through TGI-4, including a major project on lode gold deposits. The TGI-4 Lode Gold project, which comprised numerous site-specific and thematic research activities, covered the entire spectrum of crustal
settings for lode gold deposits, from orogenic banded iron formation-hosted and greenstone-hosted quartz carbonate vein-type gold deposits formed deep in the crust (>5 km), to intrusion-related deposits that are formed at shallower crustal levels
(~2-5 km), to deposits formed at or near the seafloor (Dubé et al., 2011). The main findings of the Lode Gold project are summarized in Dubé et al. (2015, and references therein).
|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. As part of TGI-4, the Côté Gold deposit located in Ontario was studied through a PhD thesis of the senior author in
collaboration between the GSC and Laurentian University. In the course of the study a series of 472 samples were collected, over a three year span (2011 to 2013) and were analysed at ActLabs, in order to characterize the geological setting,
hydrothermal footprint and metal signature of the Côté Gold fertile Au +/-Cu magmatic hydrothermal system. This open file releases the geochemical results and related information associated to these samples.
