AMIRA P934A West African Exploration Initiative-stage 2

West Africa

This is a large AMIRA project that aims to resolve what are the first order structures that divide the West African Craton into distinct mineralising domains, to define absolute and relative timing relationships between the magmatic, deformation and metamorphic events that control formation of major mineral deposits. 

The project is also assessing the surface processes that control the formation and modification of mineral deposits. A third of the project is directed towards capacity building into West Africa via training and funding of post graduate scholarships.
