Two new products derived from the Mineral Potential Map Production System (MPMPS) will be released at the Geological Research Information Seminar, to be held next November 27 and 28 in Québec. A new map showing the potential for volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits in the Senneterre area (NTS 32C) will be presented. A compilation map showing the potential for Olympic Dam-Kiruna type deposits in the Manitou-Wakeham area (NTS 22I, 22P, 12K, 12L, 12M and 12N) will also be on display. Moreover, during the Seminar, a workshop on the MPMPS will be hosted by the author.

The MPMPS, a knowledge-driven approach suitable for Québec

The Système de production des cartes de potentiel minéral (SPCPM) is a mineral potential assessment tool, which makes it possible to produce maps based on an ore deposit model that show zones favourable to the presence of mineralization.
