MERC MSc Graduate Opportunity – Great Bear Resources #2021-11
MERC, in partnership with Great Bear Resources., is seeking a MSc student to undertake a research project on the Structural controls on gold mineralization along the LP Fault, Dixie property, Red Lake. The LP Fault, immediately south of the Red Lake camp in northwest Ontario, hosts the footwall LP Fault Zone and the hanging wall the Dixie Limb Zone and the Hinge Zone. The main objectives of the project are to determine the structural controls on gold mineralization at the three mineralized zones, their relative structural chronology, and absolute timing. The research will involve surface mapping, the collection of drill core structural measurements, the investigation of microstructures under the SEM and optical microscope, and the dating of monazite and xenotime using the LA-ICPMS instrument at Laurentian University. The project is funded through a partnership with Great Bear Resources Ltd and will be supervised by Dr. Bruno Lafrance and Great Bear Resources’ technical team.
MERC MSc projects are fully funded for two years and includes complete field and analytical support.
