A Microstructural study of Musselwhite Mine and Hammond Reef shear-zone-hosted gold deposits
Musselwhite Mine and Hammond Reef are shear-zone-hosted gold deposits located in Northwestern Ontario, in the Western Superior Province of the Canadian Shield. A detailed microscopic investigation of three gold-hosting ...
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 ...

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 ...
The magnetic fabrics and strain history of the Achean Seine Group metasedimentary rocks near Mine Centre, Northwestern Ontario
The Seine Group metasedimentary rocks are situated between two converging major dextral transcurrent faults, the Quetico Fault to the north and the Seine River Fault to the south. To the west lies the Bad Vermillion ...
Sedimentology and Geochemistry of Regressive and Transgressive Surfaces in the Gunflint Formation, Northwestern, Ontario
The 1.878 Ga Gunflint and equivalent iron formations of the Animikie Basin were deposited during the period after the rise in atmospheric oxygen during the Great Oxidation Event, which began at approximately 2.4 Ga. The ...
Ore mineralogy of Mattabi mine, Northwestern Ontario, Canada
The Mattabi Mine, a volcanogenic massive sulfide deposit located 60 km north of Ignace, Ontario, in the Archean Superior Province, produced 13.5 mt of ore with an average grade 7.5% Zn, 0.88% Cu, 0.77% Pb and 3.10 oz/t Ag ...
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 ...
Depositional processes operating on the paleoproterozoic gowganda ice margin
Glacial sedimentary rocks of the Huronian Supergroup crop out along the north shore of Lake Huron and were likely deposited on what is thought to have been a divergent continental margin (Fralick and Miall, 1981; 1989). ...
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 ...
