The Mineral Deposits of Canada (MDC) volume is a collection of 44 papers that have a global perspective but a Canadian focus, and have been grouped under five major headings. Part I is an overview of the economic value of mineral resources in Canada; Part II provides a current synthesis of economically important deposit-types in Canada that include VMS, SEDEX, MVT, IOCG, porphyry, several types of lode gold, magmatic Ni-Cu-PGE, unconformity uranium, and kimberlite diamond deposits; Part III describes the metallogeny of economically important Canadian mining camps; Part IV documents the geological evolution and metallogeny of geological provinces in Canada; and Part V covers geophysical and geochemical exploration methods applied to specific types of mineral deposits. The volume is printed with unrestricted colour to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge and data captured by colour maps and sections, genetic models, images and photographs of representative rocks, ores and minerals. In addition, 4 high-capacity DVDs accompany the volume and contain an ore photo library, ArcGIS databases of major mineral deposits in Canada and the world, PDFs of all papers in the volume, digital files of all diagrams, tables and appendices, and Endnote databases of all papers referred to by volume papers. The book is published by the Mineral Deposits Division of the GAC in partnership with the Geological Survey of Canada.
