Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This special issue focuses on the Precambrian geology and mineral deposits of the St. Francois Mountains terrane (SE Missouri, USA) and the Great Bear magmatic zone (NWT, Canada). Contributions emphasize iron oxide-apatite (IOA) ± rare earth element (REE) and iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) and affiliated deposits. The volume is a product of the USGS Mineral Resources Program, and GSC Geomapping for Energy and Minerals and Targeted Geoscience Initiative programs. These studies took advantage of extensive historic drilling at and near IOA and IOCG deposits in Missouri, and of exceptional field exposures in the Great Bear magmatic zone. Collectively, results of this cumulative body of work provide new insights into the geological, geochemical, geophysical, and temporal characteristics of IOA ± REE, IOCG, and affiliated deposits, leading to enhanced understanding of diverse magmatic-hydrothermal systems, and refining of genetic models and exploration strategies for such deposits, within these terranes and elsewhere in the world.
