Petrological and Geochemical Profiling of Copper-gold Mineralization in the Iron Range Region of BC

Eagle Plains Resources is a junior exploration company exploring for minerals in Western Canada. The goal of this project is to understand the nature and type of the copper-goal mineralization present in the Iron Range, Kootenay region of BC. To accomplish this, a number of analytical techniques will be used to determine not only the chemistry of the rocks containing mineralization, but also to gain a better understanding of the geological history of the Iron Range lithologies and processes involved in mountain building in that area via determinations of pressures, crustal depths, temperatures and ages of the local rock formations.
