Geochemical, structural and (thermo)chronological controls on the Au-Ag-Cu-Pb-Zn-Mo metallogeny of the west-central Neotethyan Orogenic Belt: A deposit-district-belt scale approach

The proposed geological research project is collaboration between UBC and industry sponsors to evaluate the nature of metallic resources in NW Turkey. Undeveloped concentrations of gold, silver and copper occur in the study region; these occurrences are being actively explored by the partner organizations. In the interest of the partner companies this research project focuses on an area that completely covers mineral tenure licenses owned by the companies. Research conducted on the partner organizations mineral claims and the surrounding area directly evaluates the nature of mineral occurrences in NW Turkey, allowing comparison to a more regional framework for future exploration initiatives.
