Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This open file summarizes a field trip to the Precambrian geology of the Flin Flon mine area, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Field trip stops show how an ancient submarine volcano developed nearly 1.9 billion years ago. The first day's stops visit shear zones and rock units that were thrust together with Flin Flon mine units during a major mountain building event called the Trans-Hudson orogeny. The second day covers stops near the base of the ancient volcano and the rocks that host the 3 Flin Flon mines. The third day covers volcanic and sedimentary rocks that filled in an ancient caldera in the volcano and an overlying subsequent volcano that covered the Flin Flon mine unit. The last day of the trip consisted of either a tour underground at Triple Seven mine or a visit to nearby Snow Lake mine area. The geology of underground at Triple seven is briefly described, including the shear zones that repeat mine units. A series of stops are described that show the geology around Snow Lake and its mine hosting sequence, formed in a different setting to that of Flin Flon.
