Additions to the Geoscience Toolbox
Farhad Bouzari is Research Associate at MDRU – Mineral Deposit Research Unit – at the University of British Columbia (UBC) where he conducts industry- and Geoscience BC-sponsored research projects that focus on porphyry copper deposits and mineralogical and geochemical techniques in exploration targeting. He has expertise in establishing the anatomy and evolution of the porphyry deposits, particularly their distal and deep features, and their application in vectoring towards mineralization. He leads MDRU’s investigations to develop new exploration techniques such as Porphyry Indicator Minerals (PIMS) and is currently the principal investigator on porphyry vectoring techniques in advanced argillic altered rocks of British Columbia.
