We will provide stable isotope data that can help constrain the origin of metals and fluids in the mineral deposits being studied.
Our principal objectives are to document the carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and sulfur isotope composition of ore and gangue minerals in the deposits, and those in adjacent altered wall rocks.
The stable isotope data will be acquired by analysis of whole rocks and mineral separates using gas-source mass spectrometry.
