Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The purpose of this contribution is to present the preliminary results from a M.Sc. study conducted within the northern Labrador Trough (Québec) during the last field season (2015) on several mafic and ultramafic intrusions of the Montagnais intrusive suite. Several types of intrusions belonging to the Montagnais intrusive suite have been identified in study area: 1) mafic-dominated intrusions, 2) ultramafic-dominated intrusions, 3) ultramafic to mafic differentiated intrusions, and 4) glomeroporphyritic mafic-dominated intrusions. This project is part of a collaborative effort under the GEM-2 program between the Geological Survey of Canada and the Ministère de l'Énergie et des Ressources naturelles du Québec to better characterize and understand the mineral potential of these mafic and ultramafic intrusions in the Labrador Trough.
