"Field Mapping of Ore Deposits - Anatomy of a Tilted Porphyry Cu Batholith and its Hydrothermal Alteration Features"

Jointly presented by:
Dr. John Dilles

Dr. Richard (Dick) Tosdal

Yerington, Nevada, USA

March 22 (Friday) to March 29 (Friday), 2019
 (7 days)

















This course is a 7-day field excursion and mapping exercise around Yerington, Nevada.  Yerington is a classic locality where porphyry Cu deposits, high-level Fe-oxide deposits, and volcanic and plutonic complexes have been tilted 80° on to their side so that a complete 3-D picture of a zoned magmatic-hydrothermal system is exposed. The full course provides an opportunity to enhance skills in detailed field geologic mapping techniques used for recording structural, age, and igneous information as well as hydrothermal vein, mineralization, and alteration. Mapping exercises are undertaken in different levels within the hydrothermal system associated with porphyry Cu deposits (MacArthur and Ann-Mason). Three-days of field excursions through the Yerington Batholith, porphyry Cu hydrothermal alteration systems, advanced argillic environment in volcanic cover rocks, and sodic-calcic alteration and related Fe-oxide-Cu (Au) mineralization complete the course.

The course fees include lodging, transportation and field notes.  Participants will be picked up and returned to Reno, Nevada, at approximately 5pm on each of the start/end dates. 

$3000 USD early registration (by February 15, 2019)  |  $3300 USD late registration (after February 15, 2019)
