Unformatted text preview: C 3210 introduced concepts of ore deposit models, and also how these models were developed. The course content is broken into a series of modules and topics with various sub- topics, including: Module 1 – Putting the Economics back in Economic Geology. • Exploration versus mining. • Resources and reserves. • National Instrument 43- 101 and the Qualified Person. • Mineral deposit value in a Canadian context. Module 2 – Metal Transport and Deposition in Ore Sytems • Magmatic sulfides and controls on metal deposition and tenor (e.g., R- factor) • Magmatic- hydrothermal transport and deposition of base and precious metals. • Transport and deposition of base metals in hydrothermal systems. • Transport and deposition of gold and silver in hydrothermal systems. • Transport and deposition of uranium. • Transport and deposition of iron. Module 3 –Radiogenic Isotopes in Mineral Deposits Research • Rb- Sr tracer isotopes and geochronology. • Sm- Nd tracer isotopes and geochronology. • Pb- Pb tracer isotopes, U- Pb geochronology. • Re- Os tracer isotopes and geochronology. Module 4 - Stable Isotopes • O- H isotopes • S- C isotopes. Module 5 - Lithogeochemistry • Geochemical nomenclature. • Applications to petrochemistry of ore environments. • Alteration geochemistry and mass balance methods (e.g., Gresens, Grant, and MacLean methods). Module 6 - Fluid inclusions • Definition, primary vs. secondary, classification • Microthermometry (heating, freezing) 4 • • Other analyses Applications to the study of different hydrothermal deposit types Module 7 – Global Evolution of the Mantle,...
