Geological and geochemical vectors to low sulfidation epithermal gold mineralization, Cerro Negro district, Deseado Massif, Argentina (2017 - 2018)$254,314
Description
This research project aims to test and develop geological and geochemical vectors to low sulfidation epithermal gold mineralization in the Cerro Negro district of Argentina. The project willintegrate Terraspec and XRD analyses of clay mineralogy (illite, smectite, kaolinite) with vein textures and, where available, whole rock and mineral geochemistry to help constrain the relative depths of vein segments within discrete fault blocks and proximity to ore.
