Whole rock geochemistry, mineral chemistry, petrology and Pt, Pd mineralization of the Seagull Intrusion, Northwestern Ontario
The Seagull Intrusion emplaced during formation of the 1.1 Ga Mid-continental Rift centred around Lake Superior was studied in several drill core and surface samples and consists of a lower ultramafic section (~650 m) and ...
Stable isotope (N,O,H) geochemistry, petrology and compositions of biotite of the Musselwhite Mine, Ontario : implications for mineralisation
Musselwhite mine is located 480 km. north of Thunder Bay, Northwestern Ontario on the southern shores of Opapimiskan Lake in the North Caribou Lake greenstone belt. It is classified as an orogenic gold deposit.
Geochemistry and PGE mineralization of the Kitto intrusion : a product of Mesoproterozoic plume magmatism through fault bounded archean crust, East Nipigon Embayment, Northern Ontario
The Kitto intrusion is a Mesoproterozoic 1117.7 ±1.8 Ma peridotitic to gabbroic intrusion, that formed as a result of plume magmatism and was emplaced along Mesoproterozoic and Archean faults in the East Nipigon Embayment ...
Mineralization and tectonic setting of the Norton Lake Region, Uchi subprovince
The Norton Lake region is located approximately 50 km northeast of Fort Hope within the northernmost unnamed assemblage of the Miminiska-Fort Hope greenstone belt of the Uchi Subprovince, northwestern Ontario. An ...
Geology and alteration associated with the Hamlin Lake VMS system, Shebandowan Greenstone belt, Northwestern Ontario, Canada
The Hamlin Lake area is located approximately 120 km southwest of the City of Thunder Bay, Ontario within the Shebandowan greenstone belt of the Wawa Subprovince, Superior Province. The purpose of this study was to understand ...
The Potential of microfossil use in paleodiet and paleoenvironmental analysis in Northwestern Ontario
Historically wild rice was important economically and spiritually across much of central and eastern Canada, but the antiquity of its use by Native communities is unclear. Unlike plant macrofossils, which have traditionally ...
Paleomagnetic secular field variation and rock magnetism of some early holocene (<9900BP) postglacial lacustrine sediments near Thunder Bay, Northwestern Ontario, Canada
Paleosecular magnetic changes through a 1.5m section of post-glacial lacustrine deposits are strongly influenced by mineralogy and differential compaction. The sediments chiefly comprise clay and, in the lower one third ...
Magnetic fabrics of granitic plutons and gneisses, Northwestern Ontario
Specimens of plutonic granitic gneisses have been collected from different locations of the Superior Province. The study of their Koenigsberger ratio (related to natural remanent magnetization) and the theoretical ...
X-ray diffraction and Rietveld structural refinement of selected fluoroperovskites
This study presents an X-ray diffraction analysis and Rietveld structural refinement of selected synthetic fluoroperovskite-type compounds including the Na1-xKxMgF3 solid solution series in addition to synthetic analogues ...
Aspects of the mineralogy of the Murun alkaline complex, Yakutia, Russia
The Murun complex contains a number of unusual and mineralogically unique rocks. Many of them are problematic in terms of their genesis and petrographic interpretation. These enigmatic rocks include charoite assemblages, ...
