AbstractThis 1:50 000 geological map of the Red Lake greenstone belt is a product of the western Superior NATMAP project and represents the first belt-scale geological synthesis of this important gold camp. The map sheet integrates all new and existing mapping, geochronology (U-Pb zircon and titanite dating) and geochemical information for this greenstone belt. The map face and legend use alphanumeric codes that identify lithologic units according to Mesoarchean and Neoarchean supracrustal assemblages and plutonic suites. Inset figures (5) provide an overview of the regional framework, compilation sources, assemblages, structural elements and alteration patterns for the belt. An accompanying geochronological summary presents the ages of all major depositional, intrusive and deformational events in the map sheet with UTM coordinates and references. A companion table of gold deposits within the map sheet identifies current- and past-producing gold mines (ranked according to ounces gold produced), developed prospects and raw prospects and these are keyed numerically to the map face. Also shown on the map are base and precious metal occurrences.
