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. The purpose of this contribution is to present the preliminary results on the Lac des Montagnes intrusion, a chromite-bearing ultramafic intrusion, discovered in the 60s during regional bedrock geological mapping by the ministère des Richesses naturelles du Québec in the Nemiscau area. This intrusion is part of several ultramafic intrusions trending ENE that occur within the volcano-sedimentary belt of the Lac des Montagnes in the Opinica sub-province near the contact with the Eastmain domain in the Superior Province.
