Objectives

  1. To study the surface textures and chemical compositions of indicator minerals in glacial sediments in order to estimate the distance of transportation of individual grains.
  2. To study the chemical and isotopic compositions of indicator minerals typically used in the exploration of gold deposits.
  3. Case studies which will compare the chemical composition of indicator minerals hosted in gold deposits to those in the overlying glacial sediments.
  4. To develop new methods for heavy mineral sampling used in the preparation of representative samples for chemical and isotopic analysis.
