Assessment of undiscovered copper resources in Cambodia

Deposits, prospects, and permissive tracts for porphyry and sediment-hosted copper resources Cambodia, with estimates of undiscovered copper resources. Copper resources are reported for related deposits in close proximity to each other; the tracts outline principal areas of the world that have potential for undiscovered porphyry copper resources; the tracts were used to estimate the probable amounts of those resources at depths within 1 km below the earth's surface. Attributes include tract identifiers, tract name, location coordinates, country and state or province, grade/tonnage model used to assess tract, a brief description of the basis for tract delineation, age, assessment results, and multiple economic results.Location coordinates can represent a generalized location or a specific mineralized site; for all of the deposits in the group, grade represents the weighted average while tonnage represents the total ore tonnage.

Process Step Delineation of permissive tracts was carried out on a regional basis by different groups of scientific investigators; their results were published separately over a few years. For this compilation, those results were assembled and combined, merging polygons where it was appropriate to do so, and ensuring that attribute data were consistent (correction of spelling errors where identified, for example). Open Development Cambodia downloaded the global data in Shapefile and cropped with Cambodia spatial range. Then it was transform the projection and convert to various available file formart such as KML, GeoJSON and spreadsheet.
