ORE DEPOSITS: CHARACTERISATION & CONTEXT MODULE

LEADER: TBA

This Module aims to describe the geological, geochemical and geophysical features of ore forming systems and terrains, and use this information to devise better means of discovering mineral resources at surface and under cover.

It provides end-users with process-based models for the formation of high value metalliferous ore deposits and a framework to develop innovative new tools for determining the most prospective regions for exploration (fertility), and for targeting buried ore deposits (vectoring).

This is achieved through the following six themes:
