New discoveries in the Patterson Lake Corridor of the Athabasca Basin, Canada, are forcing revisions to existing genetic models for unconformity-related uranium deposits. Characterized by extremely high-grade ore bodies, unconformity-related uranium deposits remain prime exploration targets in Canada and abroad. This thematic collection presents results of the first integrated study of the new district, from deposit-scale isotopic studies to regional-scale metallogenic and geophysical studies, with an emphasis on the critical components driving formation of such uniquely high-grade deposits up to 900 metres below the unconformity.
