Research activities

  • Study of multi-stage mineralization in orogenic gold deposits and enrichment in atypical metals (Cu, Co, Ni). Focus on the mineralization timing, metal sources and development of a deposit model. Work area: Pohjanmaa Belt, south-western Finland.
     
  • Study of actively forming sulfide deposit in a marine magmatic-hydrothermal system. Considering the system from source to sink, to better understand the fate of the metals in these complex and dynamic environments.
