Yukon Gold Project: Metallogeny of the Dawson Range - White Gold Belt
The Mineral Deposit Research Unit is undertaking a large, two-year, industry-supported multi-disciplinary research project to generate information to increase exploration success and to provide knowledge to enhance regional targeting and property acquisitions.
Tinta Vein, Dawson Range.
The project consists of six modules
- Tectonic and Structural Setting
- Magmatic Evolution and Geochronology
- Exploration Geochemistry
- Targeting with Placer Gold
- Metallogeny and Deposit Studies.
- Fluid Geochemistry and Ore Genesis
