PhD candidate in Mineral Deposits and Precambrian Geology

RESEARCH PROJECT: The nature of Archean Porphyritic rocks associated with copper mineralization in the Superior Province, Canadian Shield; SUPERVISOR: Dr. Jeremy Richards; EMAIL: xmeng1@laurentian.ca

Precambrian porphyry copper deposits tend to be rare towards ancient geological time on our Earth. The Tongkuangyu copper deposit in Trans-North China, Haib Cu-Mo deposit in Karas region of southern Namibia, and several Archean ‘porphyry’-hosted copper deposits or occurrences in East Canadian Sheild are debated to be porphyry copper systems. The primary goal of my Ph.D. project is to identify their genesis and explore the reasons for the rarity.
