2015-02:     Application of lead isotopes in till for mineral exploration: A simplified method using ICP-MS 

Paper 2015-02

A.S. Rukhlov and T. Ferbey

Elemental abundances and Pb isotopic ratios for 2.5N HCl leachates from Chehalis valley basal till samples (<0.063 mm fraction) highlight down-ice glacial dispersion of volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) occurrences. Despite the relatively young age of the Seneca VMS deposit and surrounding volcanic rocks (Middle Jurassic), the contrast in Pb isotopic ratios between tills derived from country rocks and tills containing ore material is 3-7%. This contrast is 2-3 orders of magnitude above the analytical uncertainties of state-of-the-art multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS). Our simplified method, in which Pb isotopic ratios are measured directly on bulk 2.5N HCl leachate solution by high-resolution inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (HR-ICP-MS), is consistent with the MC-ICP-MS results. It also has low analytical uncertainties (0.4-0.6%) capable of distinguishing between tills derived mainly from country rocks and those containing ore materials. Direct-leachate measurements using a quadrupole ICP-MS lack the resolution for tracing <10% isotopic contrast. Although elevated Pb, Zn, Cu, and Ba abundances in till overlying the Seneca deposit identify the latter, they show different down-ice dispersion patterns. In contrast, Pb isotopic ratios for leachates from the <0.063 mm till fraction appear to be robust indicators of down-ice glacial dispersion for the VMS mineralization. The Pb abundances and isotopic compositions are consistent with derivation of the Chehalis valley tills from isotopically heterogeneous local bedrock sources mixed with variable proportions of lead from VMS mineralization. The relatively inexpensive method of determining Pb isotopic ratios in tills by measuring 2.5N HCl leachates using HR-ICP-MS constitutes a robust exploration tool for a broad range of concealed Pb-rich deposits including relatively young deposits.

2015-03:     Symposium on critical and strategic materials proceedings 

Paper 2015-03

edited by G.J. Simandl and M. Neetz

The demand for strategic and critical materials has grown rapidly in recent years, as ever more technologically advanced devices and industrial processes make use of their unique properties. This volume contains extended abstracts of papers presented at the Critical and Strategic Materials Symposium held in Victoria, British Columbia, November 13-14, 2015. The Symposium coincides with the end of the ‘Specialty Metals Project’, a five-year collaborative effort between the British Columbia Geological Survey, the Geological Survey of Canada, and several academic and industry partners. ‘Specialty metals’, also known as ‘rare metals’ are uncommon, nonferrous metals used in quantities of typically less than 150,000 tonnes/year or derived from geographically restricted areas. The Specialty Metals Project ran from 2010 to 2015 and was supported by the fourth iteration of the Targeted Geoscience Initiative Program (TGI-4). The International Workshop on the Geology of Rare Metals, held in Victoria in 2010, launched the TGI-4 Specialty Metals Project and brought together an international group of research scientists and industry professionals. Interest in specialty metals was peaking in 2010 owing to their growing global demand, high value, declining exports from China, and the ongoing challenges of finding new deposits. These factors created a window of opportunity for Canada to establish itself as a world leader in specialty metal exploration and, potentially, exploitation given the favourable geology in parts of Canada. The two main components of the TGI-4 Specialty Metals Project included: 1) a review of specialty metal ore deposits and their mineral economics in Canada; and 2) the development of techniques to guide exploration towards ore-grade zones.

2009-02:     Nonmetallic Minerals Other Than Coal (Industrial Minerals, Gemstones and Aggregate) in British Columbia, Canada

Paper 2009-02

G.J. Simandl

Nonmetallic minerals other than coal (NMsOC) are key components of economies in developed countries. For the purpose of this paper, the term NMsOC includes traditional industrial minerals, natural aggregate and crushed stone, dual minerals that can be used both as industrial minerals and metal ore (e.g., magnesite for magnesia and magnesium metal; chromite for ferrochrome alloys; quartzite for silicon metal), specialty metals (e.g. Ta, Nb and REE that are commonly used in oxide form as industrial minerals), and gemstones.

NMsOC are an increasingly significant component of international trade. British Columbia is strategically located on the west coast of North America and has well-developed infrastructure in the southern, more populated third of the Province, including several deep-water ports, and a well-maintained highway system. Rail links British Columbia's industrial centres to terminal points across the continent. The Province has attractive energy costs and untapped mineral resources.

The main NMsOC produced in British Columbia are magnesite, limestone, gypsum, sulphur (derived as a byproduct from oil and gas processing), construction aggregate, crushed rock, silica, dimension stone and white calcium carbonate. NMsOC produced in lesser quantities include jade (nephrite), magnetite, dolomite, barite, volcanic cinder, pumice, flagstone, clay, tufa, bentonite, Fuller’s earth and zeolites. 

The value of NMsOC produced in British Columbia during 2008 was estimated at $754 million; however, this estimate does not reflect value-added processing. In 2009, the value of NMsOC is expected to be lower than in 2008. Production of low-value, large tonnage NMsOC (with the exception of resources located along the coast) is constrained by the size of British Columbia’s industrial base and the needs of local populations.

2004-02:     Industrial Minerals Forum 2001 with an Emphasis on Western North America

Paper 2004-02

edited by G.J. Simandl, W.J. McMillan and N.D. Robinson

Proceedings of the 37th Forum on the Geology of Industrial Minerals held at the Victoria Conference Centre from May 23 -25, 2001, published 2004, 334 p..

The Forum on the Geology of Industrial Minerals has a long tradition. It was initiated by the late Professor Robert Bates of the Ohio State University and has been held on an annual basis for the last 37 years. Thirty-one meetings have been held in the USA, one in Bath, England, and five in Canada including the 37th Forum, here in Victoria.

The technical sessions focused on aggregates and transportation; value-added industrial minerals; diamonds in Canada; dimension stone; magnesite, magnesia, and magnesium metal; and exploration for and evaluation of industrial mineral deposits. There were 48 oral presentations and over 40 poster displays.
