AbstractThis research activity investigates the metal endowments of magmatic ore deposits across the Superior Province in order to identify key metallogenic provinces and to develop an integrated genetic/exploration model. Almost all chromium deposits, including the world-class deposits in the McFaulds Lake greenstone belt (a.k.a. 'Ring of Fire'), are located in the northern part of the Superior Province, predominantly within the Meso- to Neoarchean supracrustal successions of the Bird River-Uchi-Oxford-Stull-La Grande Rivière-Eastmain domains, whereas the vast majority of the Ni-Cu-PGE deposits are located within the Wawa-Abitibi terrane. In this contribution, we present an initial compilation of chromium, Ni-Cu-PGE and Fe-Ti-V deposits hosted by ultramafic to mafic intrusions/flows in the Superior Province.
