AbstractIntermittently active old structures in the crystalline basement underlying the deformed and transported rocks of the southeastern Canadian Cordillera have exerted an important influence on the subsequent sedimentary, intrusive, deformation and mineralization history. The most important structures formed during Paleoproterozoic and Archean growth and assembly of the underlying crystalline basement and are oriented transverse to the Cordilleran structural trend (Fig. 1).
