Porphyry Copper Deposits of the World: Database, Map, and Grade and Tonnage Models
Entry ID: USGS_OFR_2005_1060

Abstract: Mineral deposit models are important in exploration planning and quantitative
resource assessments for two reasons: (1) grades and tonnages among deposit
types are significantly different, and (2) many types occur in different
