Metallogeny

metallogeny

Metallogeny is an important component in the work carried out by both the Mineral Services and Bedrock Geology units. Collection, compilation and synthesis of data are carried out in order to develop regional metallogenic frameworks, which can be used as a guide to understanding mineral occurrences in the territory.
Metallogeny studies are coordinated by YGS geologists in close collaboration with the mineral exploration community and university partners.
