TitleWorld Distribution of Sediment-hosted, Stratiform Copper Deposits and Occurrences
AbstractThis data set depicts the spatial distribution and most significant geological attributes of the world's most important sediment-hosted, stratiform copper mineral deposits. These deposits form the world's second most important source of copper, and are found in chemically reduced zones, commonly associated with evaporite and red (oxidized) sandstones, in continental marginal, lacustrine, or continental settings. This data set has been extracted from a database compiled between 1982 and 1995 (Kirkham, Carrière, Garson, and Laramée; 1995), and updated for the World Minerals Geoscience Database Project (1998-2003).

The downloadable data summary is periodically extracted from a database published in 1995, and updated for the World Map Project (1995-1997) and the World Minerals Geoscience Database Project (1998-2003). The full database can be viewed and queried over the Internet.

TitleWorld Mineral Deposits
AbstractMineral deposits are natural accumulations of one or more useful minerals that may provide society with metallic or non-metallic raw materials. The Geological Survey of Canada has been compiling databases for major metallic mineral deposits on Canada-wide and world-wide scale over a three decade period. The most recent compilation was enabled by industry-sponsored World Map and World Minerals Geoscience Database Projects. Global databases for seven important metallic deposit types: lode gold, porphyry-related, nickel-platinum group-chromite, sedimentary exhalative lead-zinc, Mississippi Valley-type zinc-lead, iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG), and sediment-hosted copper deposits are now available On-Line. Five easy-to-use thematic world geology datasets provide generalized geological context for the global databases.
