AbstractStream sediment samples were collected at 22 sites in September 2017 around the Casino calc-alkaline porphyry Cu-Au-Mo deposit in west-central Yukon in order to determine if the metal zoning of elements associated with the porphyry copper system is reflected in the geochemical composition of the <177 µm stream sediment fraction. The purpose of this open file is to report stream sediment geochemical data for the Casino deposit that were analyzed in two different years: 1) analyses completed in 2018 and already reported in Open File 8632 (McCurdy et al., 2019), and 2) analyses completed in 2021 and reported here for the first time. Background geological information and stream sediment geochemical maps originally reported in Open File 8632 are not repeated in this new geochemical data reporting.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This publication reports new (in 2021) geochemical data for stream sediments collected around the Casino copper-gold-molybdenum deposit in the Yukon in 2017. These data support mineral exploration activities in the region.
