This is a table listing of 160 Mineral Deposit Profiles, including deposit...
Mineral deposit profiles can be used to classify known deposits and occurrences, to guide experts in their estimation of the number of possible undiscovered mineral deposits, and to group deposits to allow compilation of representative grade and tonnage data. Economic geologists, prospectors, resource evaluation professionals and students can use the profiles to review the key characteristics of different deposit types including typical examples, tectonic setting, mineralogy, alteration, genetic models, associated deposits, typical grades and tonnages and exploration guides.
The Mineral Deposit Profiles were written and compiled by geologists of the British Columbia Geological Survey, with assistance from economic geologists of the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC), industry, academia and the United States Geological Survey (USGS).
The British Columbia Geological Survey (BCGS) initially relied on mineral deposit models published by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC). The Mineral Deposit Profiles were written and compiled between 1995 and 2011. The profiles were released in 3 volumes: BCGS Open Files 1995-20, 1996-13 and 1999-10, and online.
