Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Mazenod Lake-Lou Lake area occupies the south end of an ancient volcanic belt known as the Great Bear magmatic zone. The area hosts the only two Iron Oxide Copper-Gold (IOCG) deposits discovered in Canada: NICO and Sue Dianne (gold, cobalt, bismuth, copper, silver). The Multiple Metals-Great Bear Region Project, Geomapping for Energy and Minerals Program (2008-2013), launched by the Geological Survey of Canada and the Northwest Territories Geoscience Office, has expanded the area's mineral potential from known IOCG to related deposit types, indicating that base, precious, nuclear and high-technology, including green-energy, metals may be present. This report was prepared under contract for Hudson Bay Exploration based on data gathered under the Canada-Northwest Territories Mineral Development Subsidiary Agreement (1987-1991) and subsequent studies. The Tlicho government opened the area for mineral exploration in spring, 2013, so that publication of any relevant information is timely.
