Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Targeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI) 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. Factors that influence the metal endowment of source regions to ore deposits, however, remain poorly understood. This study addresses that knowledge gap by reporting new data on the distributions of metals within mantle minerals.
