AbstractIn the central part of the Ennadai- Rankin belt, Neoarchean iron formation units of the Henik Group have been mapped from the Ducker lake area ca. 35 km north to the area west of the Henik lakes (Fig. 1; Aspler and Chiarenzelli, 1997 a). New mapping in the Noomut River area (65 H10 and 11) confirm that these iron formations continue east for an additional 60 km, from Magnet Bay on South Henik Lake across the Noomut River area to Harling Lake. Paleoproterozoic rocks of the Hurwitz Group are infolded with the Henik Group north of Noomut River and Ameto Lake.
