Mongolia has extensive and largely untapped mineral resources. Owing to poor infrastructure, only about 30% of the country’s natural resources have been explored thoroughly. The Sudut district contains one of the largest gold anomalies in Mongolia territory, with gold concentrations of 1-3g/t. Baruun sudut, Zuun sudut and Kharguit are the other larger gold deposits found in Mongolia.
The mining sector is expected to play an important role in the country’s future economic development. Consequently, mineral exploration is a very important factor in this context. The Government has also adopted several long-term programs to explore and develop oil and metallic and non-metallic minerals resources, including coal, copper, fluorspar, gold, and silver.
Therefore, my research is mainly based on geochemical investigation using modern geochemical methods, to explore the Sudut economic mineralization zone for gold.
The aims of my study are to:
Generation of geochemical maps of the study area to identify potential gold mineralization zones, and to characterize distribution of possible pathfinder elements.
