Global distribution of sediment-hosted metals controlled by craton edge stability

Hoggard, M J; Czarnor, Karol; Richards, Fred D.; Huston, D L; Jaques, Alan; Ghelichkhan, Siavash


Sustainable development and the transition to a clean-energy economy drives ever-increasing demand for base metals, substantially outstripping the discovery rate of new deposits and necessitating dramatic improvements in exploration success. Rifting of the continents has formed widespread sedimentary basins, some of which contain large quantities of copper, lead and zinc. Despite over a century of research, the geological structure responsible for the spatial distribution of such fertile...[Show more]
