Three geologists looking at igneous textures in granitic rocks

Detailed Description

Alaska Science Center geologist Doug Kreiner and University of Alaska, Fairbanks professor Sean Regan look at igneous textures in granitic rocks hosting gold at the Pogo gold mine with Pogo exploration geologists. This is a new collaborative study with USGS, UAF and Pogo Mine, to collaborate on unraveling the genesis of Pogo, an important producer of gold in Alaska with critical mineral enrichments. Pogo is located within the focus area of the “Geological framework, metallogeny, and critical mineral potential of the broader Yukon-Tanana upland” project in eastern Alaska.
