AbstractThe plagioclase-hornblende-biotite porphyritic granodiorite stock (Au = 32 ppb average) at the Lake George Sb-Au-W-Mo deposit, New Brunswick was sampled (10 samples) from drill core and ana-lyzed. It is metaluminous to weakly peraluminous (A/CNK = 0.99-1.13), calc-alkaline, Na 2 O>K 2 O, and has (La/Yb)N from 7.34 to 11.14 with a small negative Eu anomaly, as well as obvious negative Nb, Ti, Sr, and Ba anomalies. The Early Devonian ages and volcanic arc affinities (evolved I-type) favour a relation-ship with the Pokiok Batholith. Gold-bearing quartz-vein mineralization within the stock and in the proximal metamorphic aureoles highlights its metallogenic association with the intrusion. Silicification, sericitization, and chloritization of the stock associated with quartz-vein mineralization are enriched in Au, As, S, W, Mo, Rb, K, and B. These mineralizing fluids may be derived from the same granodioritic magma crystallizing at depth, although later than the W-Mo mineralization. The gold may be associated with an antimony mineralization episode.
