This report releases whole-rock geochemical results of 703 samples from the zinc, gold, silver and copper Lalor VMS deposit, collected during the 2012 to 2013 field seasons as part of a PhD study by the senior author (Caté, 2016) at the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique, Centre Eau, Terre, Environment (INRS-ETE) in Quebec City. Research at Lalor was conducted under the VMS project and analytical data is presented in a format easily importable in a geographic information system (GIS). Samples were primarily collected from drill cores but the list includes samples from underground and surface outcrops. Samples were selected to document host units, their petrogenesis, the alteration assemblages and the ore. Interpretations are presented in Caté (2016) and Caté et al. (2013, a, b, 2014a, b, 2015). Sample information and geochemical results are presented in Appendices 1 and 2 (worksheet "Results") respectively.
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. As part of TGI-4, the Lalor auriferous VMS deposit located in Manitoba was studied through a PhD thesis by the senior author as part of a collaborative project between the Geological Survey of Canada, Hudbay Minerals, the Manitoba Geological Survey, the Institut national de la recherche scientifique - Eau Terre Environnement and the University of Ottawa. In the course of the study a series of samples were collected, over a three year span (2012 to 2014) and were analysed at ActLabs, in order to characterize the geological setting, hydrothermal footprint and metal signature of the Lalor auriferous VMS deposit. This open file releases the whole-rock geochemical results and related information associated to these samples.
