Identifying subtle and cryptic alteration signatures related to mineralized porphyry deposits is imperative as exploration for these systems is now mostly all under cover. The NSERC-CMIC footprints project (2013-2018) combined multiple parameters, including geology, structure, alteration, lithochemistry, petrophysical properties, and geophysics to define new footprints and vectors related to porphyry mineralization. This full-day short course presents results from this project and will highlight the techniques, work flows, and alteration signatures (including sodic-calcic and propylitic) in both hard rock and cover (soil, till). The course will include hand samples from the study for hands-on exercises in identifying the distal alteration features of porphyry copper deposits.
Who should attend:
This course is open to geologists and geophysicists from industry, government, or academia. No previous formal training in porphyry copper deposit exploration is required.
