Society of Economic Geologists Field Trips
- Bingham Canyon Porphyry Cu-Au-Mo Deposit
Fri., 14 Oct. Sponsored by Society of Economic Geologists.
- Ken Krahulec, Utah Geological Survey, 1594 W. North Temple, P.O. Box 146100, Salt Lake City, UT 84114-6100, +1-801-537-3308, fax +1-801-537-3400; Ricardo Presnell, Kennecott Exploration Co., 224N 2200W Salt Lake City, UT 84116, +1-801-238-2414, fax +1-801-238-2430.
- This one-day field trip will visit the world-class Bingham Porphyry Cu-Au-Mo deposit. The visit will consist of an overview of the Bingham Mining district and open-pit geology, review of significant core intervals, and possibly a visit into the open pit. Participants must provide their own hard hat, safety glasses, and steel-toe boots. A jacket and gloves are also recommended. Please contact trip leaders for further information.
- Max.: 50.
- Lisbon Valley Sediment-Hosted Cu Deposits and Paradox Basin Fluids
Thurs.–Fri., 20–21 Oct. Sponsored by Society of Economic Geologists.
- Jon Thorson, 5515 Nuthatch Road, Parker, CO 80134, +1-303-805-2502, fax +1-303-805-2503; Ricardo D. Presnell, Kennecott Exploration Co., 224N 2200W Salt Lake City, UT 84116, +1-801-238-2414, fax +1-801-238-2430.
- The Lisbon Valley copper deposits are the result of two episodes of basin dewatering fluid flow. On day 1, we will review regional stratigraphy of the northeastern Paradox Basin, reducing pyritic alteration of the Permian through Lower Cretaceous section by an early basinal fluid, and copper mineralization by a later fluid. Day 2 will be a visit to Constellation Copper Corporation’s Lisbon Valley Mine and SXEW copper facility. A short but demanding hike is included. Participants must provide their own hard hat, safety glasses, and appropriate boots required for the mine visit. Please contact Jon Thorson by e-mail for further information.
- Max.: 20. Begins and ends in Grand Junction, Colorado.
