Metal isotopes provide novel insights into the history of ore minerals, from their genesis all the way to their current distribution in economically viable quantities. They can provide independent constraints on the conditions of ore deposit formation and evolution, while also complementing conventional approaches. However, as a burgeoning area of research, the utility of metal isotopes in these applications has yet to be fully realized. This webinar instalment will explore the state-of-the-art and future horizons of metal isotopes in mineral exploration.
