This talk focusses on the structural geology evolution of exceptionally high-grade silver deposits in the Keno Hill district, and includes discussions on the complex relationships between stratigraphy and structural elements, the structural controls on mineralization, geochronological constraints on deformation and mineralization, and the regional tectonic setting of the district.

Simon Craggs

Simon has over 10 years of experience in regional- to deposit-scale geological mapping and structural analysis of variably deformed terranes in North America, South America, and Europe. He has assisted with exploration projects on porphyry, and epithermal, veintype ore deposits, geotechnical studies for underground and open pit mines, as well as field- and office-based research projects for the hydrocarbon sector. He specializes in detailed analysis of fault/fracture and fluid flow mechanics in upper crustal settings. Simon is currently completing a Ph.D. at the University of New Brunswick on the structural and geochronologic controls on Ag-Pb-Zn vein development in the Keno Hill mining district, Yukon.
