Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This poster presents results from GEM-2 Program fieldwork preformed during the Summers 2014 and 2015 in the New Quebec orogeny near Kuujjuaq, QC, on the deformation and metamorphic history of Paleoproterozoic-age supracrustal rocks. This type of work allows for a better estimation of potential for orogenic gold deposits, as well as improving our understanting of the evolution of the Canadian Shield from a tectonic and economic geology perspective.
