Description:
Abstract:
Map interface and data download of Sed Zn-Pb data including KML and GIS data formats
Purpose:
These mineral deposit resource data are important for exploration targeting and mineral resource assessments. There is significant variability in the resource data for these deposit types, and ore controls vary from one region to another.
