Sedimentology and geochemistry of the Mesoproterozoic Pass Lake and Rossport formations, Sibley group
The Sibley Group is an essentially unmetamorphosed, Mesoproterozoic sedimentary succession consisting of a mixture of siliciclastic and chemical sedimentary rocks. This study examined the sedimentology and geochemistry ...
Magnetic fabrics from sheeted dikes reveal regional magma flow patterns, and the spacing and dimensions of ophiolite magma-chambers, Troodos ophiolite, Cyprus
Orientation-distributions of crystals were determined for 1289 specimens of the Sheeted Dike Complex of the Troodos ophiolite, located on the island of Cyprus. These were inferred from anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility ...
Rock magnetic studies of the CY-4 drillhole through the Troodos ophiolite, Cyprus
Rock magnetic properties of 50 specimens from a continuous section through the lower layers of the Troodos ophiolite in the CY-4 drill hole, reveal an alteration and palaeomagnetic history consistent with ocean spreading. ...
The mineralogy of NYF pegmatites from the Coldwell alkaline complex, Northwestern Ontario
The Coldwell Complex, northwestern Ontario, is a multiphase alkaline intrusion that is host to rare earth element, actinide and other high field strength element mineralization. Preliminary studies have shown that these ...
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.
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 ...
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 ...
Lithogeochemistry of the sedimentary stratigraphy and metosomatic alteration in the Musselwhite gold deposit, North Caribou Lake belt, Superior province, Canada : implications for deposition and mineralization
The Musselwhite gold deposit, 100% owned and operated by Goldcorp Inc., has cumulatively produced in excess of 2 million ounces since opening in 1997 and has a projected mine life through 2013. It is situated in the North ...
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 ...
