This report provides an update on the results of the High-Mg Ultramafic-Mafic Systems subproject conducted in collaboration between the Earth Resources & Geoscience Mapping
Section of the Ontario Geological Survey (OGS) and the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) as part of the Ni-Cu-PGE-Cr project of the Targeted Geoscience Initiative 4 (TGI-4) (Ames et al., this volume). The main TGI-4 objectives and the different
themes associated with the Ni-Cu-PGE-Cr project were presented last year by Ames and Houlé (2011) and the reader is referred to this previous contribution for more details.
This year's contribution highlights research activities within the
High-Magnesium Ultramafic to Mafic System subproject carried out in collaboration with provincial governments (Ontario Geological Survey, Manitoba Geological Survey, and Géologie-Québec), academia and the exploration and mining sector.
