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. Herein we report preliminary geochemical results from olivine and clinopyroxene mantle xenocrysts from the Kirkland Lake kimberlite field. These mantle fragments provide a window into the geochemical behaviour of base and precious metals within the mantle lithosphere underlying the Abitibi greenstone belt.
