AbstractThe Meadowbank gold project consists of five deposits hosted in the Neoarchean Woodburn Lake group of the western Churchill Province, including the recently delineated Vault deposit, located 7 km north-northeast of the previously defined mineralized zones in the 'Third Portage Lake' area. The supracrustal rocks of the Meadowbank area have experienced a polyphase deformation history spanning the Neoarchean to Paleoproterozoic. This contribution discusses the stratigraphic and structural framework of the corridor of rocks between the Meadowbank gold deposits and the recently discovered Vault deposit to the north.
