The mineral systems approach has been spurred by three main drivers: the recognition of patterns of mineralization in increasingly available large geoscience datasets; advances in geographic information system (GIS) technologies to spatially query these datasets; and marked advances in understanding the evolution of earth systems and geodynamics that provide context for mineralization patterns. An understanding of mineral systems and...
