ProgramHudson/Ungava Core Zone, GEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals
Released2014 11 28
Abstract(Summary)
The GEM2 Hudson-Ungava project has conducted literature reviews and public geoscience re-examination of a case study within the Romanet Horst, Québec, Canada to test a scientific hypothesis upon which will rest larger-scale work in the Labrador Trough for its upcoming 2015 season. To this effect, a task-sharing agreement has been set up with Honey Badger Exploration Inc. and Energizer Resources Inc. to use their Sagar mineral property as a test-case to assess if the trough has potential for multiple metals iron oxide copper-gold (IOCG) deposits. This report presents the why, where and who of this activity and briefly summarises regional-scale iron oxide alkali-alteration attributes typical of mineral systems that can lead to IOCG and affiliated deposits. Results should shed light on the development of regional-scale alteration systems within the horst and contribute to identify other localities of the Labrador Trough with potential for IOCG and affiliated deposits. Ultimately the evolution, timing relationships and spatial distribution of the mineralising systems will support GEM2 and the Québec Ministère de l'Énergie et des Ressources naturelles goal of providing a renewed framework for mineral resources development in the Labrador Trough and adjacent Core Zone.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This open file reports on field activities and literature reviews undertaken through a task-sharing agreement with private sector under the GEM2 Program, Hudson-Ungava project, Core Zone activity. The test-case chosen was within the Romanet Horst of the Labrador Trough, Québec, Canada. Results support the scientific hypothesis that the Labrador Trough has potential for multiple metals iron oxide copper-gold (IOCG) and affiliated deposits. Results shed light on the development of regional-scale alteration systems within the horst and will contribute to identify other localities of the trough with potential for IOCG and affiliated deposits that can be examined in FY 2015-2016. Ultimately the evolution, timing relationships and spatial distribution of the mineralising systems and their alteration zones will support GEM2 and the Québec Ministère de l¿Énergie et des Ressources naturelles goal of providing a renewed framework for mineral resources development in the Labrador Trough and adjacent Core Zone.
