Research Projects

Economic geology research at MDRU and the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences operate at a wide range of scales from deposit to global, and empirical to conceptual. Where appropriate, projects are undertaken with industry consortia of three and more industry partners to confront larger technical issues challenging the industry. However, smaller site-specific or topical projects that address strategic goals are also considered.

Several of our larger consortium projects are highlighted here:

Discovery Tools for Buried Copper Deposits in the Atacama Desert

Yukon-Alaska Metallogeny

Western Tethyan Metallogeny

Colombia Gold and Porphyry Project

Yukon Gold Project
