Structure

Interactive Structure Map

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

Consequently, if any faulting was found to occur within the boundary of a target, that structure was included in the TARGET description of the target. This enables potentially more accurate characterization of deposit-type affinities.

All fault types were recorded as "fault" in order to be compatible with TARGET terminology. Where additional information about the nature of the faults, this was copied into the "Comments" field of the TARGET record where it is not used for comparisons, but is easily available for reference when evaluating comparisons.
