Metallogeny of Rare Earth Element deposits in Quebec
The one-year project will investigate the geological, geochemical and geophysical properties of three Rare Earth Element (REE) deposits in Québec. Each of the selected deposit is representative of a class of REE mineral deposits. The project will provide new insights in the origin of the three types of REE mineral deposits. This new understanding of the formation of REE mineral deposits will be transferred to the industrial partners and will be used to improve the odds of discovering REE resources in Québec and Canada. The project will contribute to the training of three MSc and 1 PhD students, that will bring advanced knowledge in REE geology to their future employers.
