Porphyry Indicator Minerals – Webinar & Digging Deep Blog

Vancouver, BC – October 5, 2020 – The latest edition of Geoscience BC’s Digging Deep blog and an October 21 webinar co-hosted with MDRU-Mineral Deposit Research Unit discuss a series of research projects that show the potential to identify buried porphyry deposits from till or bedrock samples near the surface in British Columbia.

The series of Porphyry Indicator Minerals (PIMS) projects have added to the mineral exploration toolbox in British Columbia, where many potential mineral deposits are buried below till and other glacial sediments.

The Digging Deep: In Pursuit of Porphyries blog post summarizes Geoscience BC Porphyry Indicator Minerals (PIMS) research projects that have been completed to date. The webinar will feature MDRU Research Associate and project lead Farhad Bouzari and will discuss findings from past Geoscience BC-funded PIMS projects, the recently completed Assessing BC Porphyry Fertility using Zircons project and ongoing Porphyry Vectoring Techniques in Advanced Argillic Altered Rocks in British Columbia project.
