Unformatted text preview: Crust, Atmosphere and Ocean and the Secular Evolution of Mineral Deposits. • Crust- mantle evolution. • Evolution of the ocean and atmosphere and the global oxygen, sulfur, and chlorine cycles. • Secular evolution of ore deposits and interrelationships between ore deposits and an evolving Earth. Module 8 - Regional Metallogeny • Case studies from Newfoundland and Labrador and globally. Laboratory Exercises and Lab Exam Lab 1 – Dollar value of some common ore deposit types. Lab 2 – R- factor modeling of Ni- Cu- PGE data. Lab 3 – Metal solubility calculations. Lab 4 –Rb- Sr isotopes. Lab 5 – Sm- Nd isotopes. Lab 6 – O and H stable isotopes. Lab 7 – S and C stable isotopes. Lab 8 – Lithogeochemistry and mass balance calculations. Laboratory exercises will include calculations, creation of graphs, and interpretation of data. Points to note: 1) the final lab exam must be submitted either in printed form or as a single PDF file or a single Excel spreadsheet. In essence, both the teaching assistant and I must be able to press print and correct, not search through multiple files to see if the excercise is completed properly; 2) all graphs, tables, and figures, must be labelled properly, including labelling of axes, equations, tables, and so- on; 3) marks will be given for clarity of interpretation and responses; and 4) coherent writing is required. This includes proper spelling, punctuation, and grammar. Poorly constructed responses will receive lower marks. Term Papers and Presentations...
