AbstractThe Meliadine Lake area is underlain by an Archean (ca 2.63 Ga) supracrustal sequence which forms a regional scale, Archean F2 syncline. Along the north limb, three sets of pre-F2 mesoscopic folds are present in a turbidite-hosted, locally auriferous oxide ironjormation. An assemblage of biotite + chlorite in silicate-rich layers of the iron-formation is overprinted by random intergrowths of fine grained grunerite + hornblende + carbonate with pyrrhotite, and coarse hornblende +!- biotite with arsenopyrite. Textures suggest that gold mineralization is associated with S, Ca and C02 metasomatism, and is controlled by the oungest set of pre-F 2/olds. The Archean lithologies in the Barbour Bay region are dominated by polydeformed quartzofeldspathic gneiss, migmatite, granitoid plutons, paragneiss, amphibolite, and garnetiferous, silicate ironjormation. Folded high-strain zones containing tectonized remnants of anorthosite, gabbro, and pegmatite transect the gneisses. Four sets of folds and one event of amphibolite grade metamorphism are recognized. The distribution of lithologies is controlled by west-plunging F 3Jolds. The mapping indicates the presence of flat-lying, crustal-scale tectonic slabs.
