I am examining the residence and mobility of gold and other precious/base metal in the mantle. I am using laser ablation ICP-MS measurements to quantify gold and other precious metals in mantle minerals from mantle xenoliths. The xenoliths are from the Jericho and Muskox kimberlites. The ultimate goal of the project is to determine the role of the lithospheric mantle in ore deposit genesis. The project is sponsored by the Geological Survey of Canada`s Targeted Geoscience Initiative and the DERTS program. My thesis is supervised by Graham Pearson (University of Alberta), Christopher Lawley (Geological Survey of Canada) and Bruce Kjarsgaard (Geological Survey of Canada).
