Exploration for mineral deposits is becoming increasingly challenging as the industry shifts away from identifying shallow mineralized intrusions to identifying deep-seated intrusions. The success of mineral exploration, therefore, depends on the development of robust mineral deposit models and geochemical exploration tools. Development of such exploration criteria for magmatic Ni–Cu–PGE deposits has been challenging as these systems develop and are modified by a complex set of magmatic and post-magmatic processes. Using the Cu–PGE-mineralized Eastern Gabbro of the Coldwell Complex, Ontario, Canada as an example, we will explore the petrogenesis of the
host rocks and the processes that generated and modified the conduit-type mineralization using Fe–Ti oxide and base-metal sulfide chemistry, and assess the applicability of Fe–Ti oxide and late stage vein mineral chemistry to identifying and vectoring towards mineralization. This presentation will highlight the complexity of conduit-type Ni–Cu–PGE systems that arise from the combination of primary magmatic and late-stage hydrothermal processes, the challenges associated with the development of robust exploration tools, and the need to integrate detailed textural analysis with high-resolution mineral chemistry in the assessment of mineral deposit petrogenesis.

"A fundamental role of carbonate–sulfate melts in the formation of iron oxide–apatite (IOA) deposits"

Kiruna-type iron oxide-apatite (IOA) deposits are an enigmatic class of magnetite-rich systems with a wide range of proposed genetic models. Here I present the results of three studies which examine inclusions in ore-stage apatite, diopside, and magnetite from characteristic IOA systems. These studies show that IOA mineralization in all three systems is associated with unusual Fe-rich, carbonate-sulfate melts which show remarkable consistency in terms of their compositions and microthermometric behavior. Moreover, carbon (δ13C) and oxygen (δ18O) isotope data indicates that these melts were formed via the anatexis and/or assimilation of local evaporite-bearing sedimentary rock by mafic-intermediate magmas in these systems. This interpretation is supported by the common occurrence of mafic-intermediate intrusive rocks crosscutting and assimilating evaporite-bearing carbonate strata in many notable IOA localities. These results indicate that a previously unrecognized genetic process involving crustal anataxis is involved in the formation of IOA mineralization and perhaps also promotes the formation of other Fe-, Ti-, and REE-rich systems.
