AbstractA 3D geospatial observational database has been compiled for the mineral prospective Archean (2704 -2695 Ma) Blake River Group, Noranda mining camp in Québec. It includes harmonized surface and subsurface geoscience data derived from public (Ministère des Ressources naturelles E-Sigeom and Geological Survey of Canada) and private (Xstrata, Falco-Pacific) databases. Included are a variety of data sets representing regional to mine scale 3D observations from drill core, outcrop, and mine workings with lithostratigraphic, structural, geochemical and geochronologic information. Geophysical gravity and magnetic survey compilations and seismic profiles across prospective regions of the Central Camp have been integrated into the 3D data store to support better 3D interpretation. A common lithostratigraphic classification and 3D structural data base provides value added information to support better trend analysis, 3D mapping and regional interpretation. The aim of this 3D data release is to provide modelling and mineral exploration constraints for enhancing the predictive capacity for targeting deeper hidden mineral resources in the Rouyn-Noranda region. Some preliminary 3D model examples are provided.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Targeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI-4) is a collaborative federal geoscience program that provides industry with the next generation of geoscience knowledge and innovative techniques to better detect buried mineral deposits, thereby reducing some of the risks of exploration. A computer data base of all current geological observations within a region near Noranda Quebec has been pulled together from historical sources. The data is from surface and underground drilling operations as well as ground traverses undertaken by companies and geological surveys over the years. Geological content includes rock type descriptions, geometric trends of the rock layers, various chemical and metal abundances of interest for mining exploration.
