AbstractThis paper reports on the first field season of a new Targeted Geoscience Initiative designed to provide a regional tectonostratigraphic context for supracrustal and plutonic rocks that form the northern flank of the Trans-Hudson Orogen internides in Manitoba, as well as re-evaluating the mineral potential of the area. The project extends from the north flank of the Kisseynew Domain, through the Lynn Lake, Leaf Rapids, and Southern Indian domains, and into the south margin of the Chipewyan Batholith. It follows on from a similar transect recently completed in Saskatchewan, which provided new constraints on terrane composition and assembly, and tectonic environments of formation and/or deposition. That transect led to the discovery of new exploration targets and renewed economic interest in the region. Preliminary results show that most of the lithotectonic entities defined along the Churchill River Southern Indian Lake transect can be traced westward to Saskatchewan, permitting regional correlations.
