Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The purpose of this contribution is to present the results from a B.Sc. study conducted within the northern Labrador Trough (Québec) during the last field season (2014) on several mafic and ultramafic intrusions of the Montagnais intrusive suite Montagnais contains several Cu-Ni-PGE mineralization styles including PGE-Cu-Ni reef-style mineralization. In the course of this study several PGE showing (Ceres, Enish, Itokawa, Athena and Paladin), occurring over a strike of 150 km, were characterized petrographically and geochemically in order to better understand the distribution of these PGE mineralization. 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.
