"Targeting secondary copper deposits in the Troodos Massif, Cyprus"

I am researching the potential for using a weathered gossan overlying a mineral deposit as a tool for determining Cu grade of the underlying deposit, and to assess the potential for the formation of a supergene Cu deposit, based on the leaching characteristics of the gossan and primary orebody
