Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The discovery of the Horne deposit in 1923 was an outstanding event in the history of the Canadian mining industry, not only because of the size and grade of this giant volcanic-hosted massive sulfide (VMS) deposit, but also because the exploration that ensued ultimately led to the discovery of the Noranda mining camp and the settlement of northwestern Quebec (Roberts, 1956). Despite decades of intensive research and exploration, the stratigraphy and structural setting of the Horne deposit, the most important VMS deposit in the Noranda camp, re-mains poorly understood. In addition to enhancing the understanding of the geology and setting of the Horne deposit, this project aims to stimulate exploration efforts by provid-ing new information on the stratigraphy, as well as controls on the distribution of altera-tion minerals and mineralization in the mine area.
