AbstractThe Rendell-Jackman gold deposit is one of the most significant mesothermal vein-type gold deposits in the Canadian Appalachians. It is located within a deformed Ordovician metavolcanic dominated sequence containing felsic dykes. The first episode of deformation is evidenced in the metavolcanics by an S 1 planar fabric containing a down dip stretching lineation. The second episode (Di) produced steeply plunging E-W folds, an S2 foliation and discrete brittle-ductile D2 high strain zones, affecting the metavolcanics and the felsic dykes. The se brittle-ductile D2 high strain zones are particularly well developed in the hinges of F 2Jolds. They are also strongly controlled by the layer anisotropy induced by the felsic dykes which are competent compared to the incompetent metavolcanics. The gold bearing quartz veins are of shear vein type and hosted within and sub-parallel to the D2 high strain zones. The fast deformation episode produced F3 sub-horizontal folds and Late NE and ENE brittle faults.
