Mineral Deposit Databases and Syntheses of Major Mineral Deposit Types in Canada
Economic mineral 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 conducting scientific studies and compiling databases for major metallic mineral deposits on Canada-wide and world-wide scale over a three decade period. The latest phase of database compilation has been facilitated by the World Minerals Geoscience Database Project.
