AbstractThe oldest recognized units in the Osik-Atik- Footprint lakes are porphyritic granodiorites identified by sensitive high resolution ion microprobe (SHRIMP) U-Pb zircon ages on plutons at Atik Lake (1879±13 Ma) and Footprint Lake (1882±10 Ma). A supracrustal sequence containing quartz-rich sandstone and silicate-facies iron formation that borders a similar pluton at Wapisu Lake may be unconformable and underlie Burntwood Group (<1850 Ma) migmatites which make up most of the northeastern Kisseynew domain. At Osik Lake a hook-shaped body of homogeneous biotite tonalite is enveloped by a sheath of enderbite-quartz diorite-gabbro in structural contact with Burntwood migmatite. The tonalite contains at least one layered mafic-ultramafic body that may be the source of a nickel in till anomaly south of Osik Lake.
Structurally the area is characterized by a set of upright, gently northeast-plunging F3 folds that re-oriented a prominent S2 foliation developed in all rock types except late granites and pegmatites. The map pattern of an outlier of Sickle Group rocks north of Osik Lake may be the product of structural interference.
