AbstractThis report summarizes the 2017 field investigations and on-going research in the Patterson Lake corridor, northwestern Saskatchewan, an area hosting recently discovered, high-grade uranium deposits. 2017 activities included acquisition and release of a new aeromagnetic survey and derivative map products, sampling and structural measurements on industry drill core. Samples will be analyzed for magnetization, petrographic, geochronologic, fluid inclusion and stable isotopes. Together these analyses will provide information on the ore genesis, alteration and structural reactivation history of the region to inform on-going exploration and challenge existing ore deposit models.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Targeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI) is directed towards providing next generation knowledge and methods to facilitate more effective targeting of buried mineral deposits. The program aims to enhance the effectiveness of exploration for Canada¿s major mineral systems by resolving foundational geoscience problems that constrain the geological processes responsible for the liberation metals from their source region, transportation of these ore metals and control their eventual deposition. TGI supports projects on gold, Ni-Cr-PGE, porphyry-style mineralization, uranium and volcanic- and sedimentary-hosted base metal mineralization ore systems, with each project divided into subprojects focused on resolving specific knowledge gaps by integrating data and studies from multiple sites across Canada. Herein, we present interim results and interpretations from a selection of the research activities currently being conducted under the auspices of TGI.
