Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This guidebook was prepared as part of the 'Gold mineralization in the Guiana Shield' field trip, organized during the 14th biennal SGA meeting in Québec. The objective of this guidebook is to give participants an overview of the geology and metallogeny of the exceptionally well-endowed Guiana Shield with an emphasis on the geologic setting of gold. It also provides an overview of the greenstone belts of Guiana and Suriname, the description of the 3 visited mine associated with gold deposits at the Karouni (Guyana), Rosebel (Suriname), and Merian (Suriname), and the description of the Montagne d'Or project (French Guiana).
