Copper-bottomed deposits

Copper-bottomed deposits

Researchers have studied over 100,000 combinations to establish the depth and number of years required for magma to produce a given amount of copper. The same scientists have also devised a model that can detect the quantity of copper held in a deposit by means of a simple factor analysis. The research will make it possible to estimate the potential for mining the metal before beginning any drilling. (Université de Genève). Read more at sciencedaily.com
