ProgramMafic-Ultramafic Ore Systems, Targeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI-4)
AbstractAll the activities in progress within this subproject were introduced by Houlé, Lesher and Metsaranta (2012) and the reader is referred to this previous contribution to learn more about the details of each activity and their main objectives. All the research projects conducted in Ontario are also supporting the broader scope of the high-magnesium ultramafic to mafic systems subproject by investigating possible correlations between various mafic to ultramafic intrusions in the Oxford-Stull and Uchi domains in Ontario, the Bird River greenstone belt in Manitoba, and the La Grande and Eastmain domains in Québec, all of which are situated within the Superior Province (Houlé et al. 2013a, 2013b).
Activities under the high-magnesium ultramafic to mafic systems subproject have been grouped into 3 main themes: 1) system fertility; 2) toward fertility; and 3) vectors to ore. Within this overview article, we summarize several contributions to the "system fertility" theme, as the activities described herein deal with delineating key geological features that determine ore localization within prospective mafic to ultramafic systems (Figure 49.1).
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. This report provides an update on the results of Targeted Geoscience Initiative 4 (TGI-4) Ni-Cu-PGE-Cr project. This year¿s contribution highlights the status, significant progress and achievements of research activities under the High-Magnesium Ultramafic to Mafic Systems subproject carried out in collaboration with OGS, academia and the exploration and mining sector in Ontario
