Austria Conference-07 kh-iaea-mongolian rift basins-2012

  1. 1. Uranium Prospectivity of Mongolian BasinsKristl Hoksbergen 1, Enkhbayasgalan Dugerjav 2,Munkhbold Nayam-Ochir 21Cameco Corporation, 2 Cameco Mongolia29, May, 2012
  2. 2. Key Messages● Mongolia has a complex structural past, with Jurassic and Cretaceous tectonism creating many extensional rift basins along the main Mongolian lineament;● These extensional basins contain many uranium occurrences as well as deposits containing a combined total of over 25,000 tonnes U;● Uraniferous basins consist of the same elements many of the unexplored basins contain;● The Tamsag basin in Mongolia covers an area of over 48,000 km2;● Sediments of the Tamsag are highly prospective for the formation of sandstone hosted uranium deposits;● Mongolia is highly unexplored, and contains many basins prospective for sandstone hosted uranium.

  25. 25. Conclusions● Large sandstone hosted uranium systems are usually found in contractional basins (foreland basins);● Rift basins typically develop as a series of sub- basins, are more compartmentalized, and produce more closed depositional systems;● However, rift basins are capable of hosting economic deposits, including the Karoo Basin of Africa, and several basins in Mongolia;● Mongolian Cretaceous basins contain suitable uranium source rocks, host stratigraphy and efficient mineralization traps;● Mongolia contains many aerially extensive rift basins that are relatively unexplored.
