AbstractReconnaissance-scale mapping of the Goudalie domain in an area up to 200 km north of the Vizien belt shows that the northwest-trending negative aeromagnetic anomaly corresponds to granite- greenstone terrane. The 110-km long, <1 km wide, Kogaluc-Tasiat belt of sheared, amphibolite-facies, mafic metavolcanic rocks, biotite schist, and iron-formation, is bordered to the east and west by 15-20 km wide zones of similar lithologies at granulite facies forming screens in pyroxene-bearing granodiorite and granite. The eastern zone of high-grade supracrustals extends north into the Payne Lake belt of paragneiss, mafic gneiss, and iron-formation, with concordant sheets of granitoid rock, cut locally by Archean dykes. To the east, the Qalluviartuuq belt of sheared, amphibolite-facies mafic metavolcanic schist, biotite schist, and conglomerate is locally unconformable on tonalitic basement. Favourable environments for VMS and shear-zone-hosted gold mineralization may be present.
