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 presents results of field mapping undertaken at the Rainy River gold project in NW Ontario as part of the Geological Survey of Canada's (GSC) Targeted Geoscience Initiative 4 (TGI-4) program's Lode Gold project. The content focuses on the style, geometry, timing and structural controls of ore distribution and grade aiming at better defining the geologic and potential hydrothermal footprints in order to improve exploration methods and models for low-grade, large-tonnage style gold deposit in Canada.
