Structure

High quality maps of faulting and folding in the Yukon are available, and faults and folds are known to play an important role in the location of certain deposit-types.


Consequently, if any faulting or folding was found to occur within 2.5 kilometres of any sample in an Anomaly Cluster, that structure was included in the MineMatch description of the Anomaly Cluster, enabling potentially more accurate characterisation of deposit-type affinities.

All faults were recorded as "faulting", and all folds as "folding", in order to be compatible with MineMatch terminology.  Where additional information about the nature of the faults or folds was available, this was copied into the "Comments" field of the MineMatch record (where it is not used for comparisons, but is easily available for reference when evaluating MineMatch comparisons.
