Critical metals exploration strategy
A mineral deposit is only one of the focal points of a mineral system's portfolio of deposits.
How many undiscovered deposits could be in your project's mineral system?
in your tenements?
Have you placed your critical metals deposit into the wider geological context?
Have you constrained the structural controls of mineralization and post-emplacement geometry?
Let's chat more about your projects upside:
- Build your project's targets through a tectonics to structural to deposit scale sequence. Nature did.
- Prioritize your data acquisition program to fill knoweldge gaps and constrain exploration risks.
- Extend your deposit model along under-explored, structural trends to find extensions.
Some examples of building context and upside for REE projects:
A few crucial uses of critical metals
Structurally controlled REE in carbonatite dykes exploit the host rock fracture system
Mapping an entire REE metallogenic province (Banks et al. 2020).
Mapping a REE project's weakest links (Banks et al. 2020).
An entire REE mineral system (Banks et al. 2019). Could your project have upside along undiscovered mineral system branches?
