This report releases whole-rock geochemical and assay results of 94 samples from Island Gold deposit located near the community of Dubreuilville, Ontario. These samples were collected in 2016 and 2017 as part of a Master's thesis study by the senior author (Ciufo, 2019) at the University of Waterloo, Ontario. Research on the Island Gold deposit was conducted under the Gold project under the system controls on gold through space and time (source to trap) theme. The lithogeochemical data is presented in a format easily importable in a geographic information system (GIS). Samples were collected from surface exposures, underground workings in the mine, and from drillcore to document the chemistry of host units, alteration zones and of the ore. Interpretations derived from this data are presented in Ciufo (2019) and Ciufo et al. (2019). Sample information and geochemical results are presented in Appendices 1 and 2 (worksheet 'Results'), respectively. The results worksheet combines 5 data reports from 2016 and 2017.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The targeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI-5) is a collaborative federal geoscience program that provides the industry with the next generation of geoscience knowledge and innovative techniques to better detect buried mineral deposits, thereby reducing some of the risks of mineral exploration. As part of TGI-5, the Archean Island gold deposit, located in the Michipicoten belt, in Ontario was studied through a MSc thesis by the senior author in collaboration with the GSC, the University of Waterloo and Alamos Gold. Through this study (between 2016 and 2018), 94 samples were collected and analyzed at ActLabs, to characterize the geological setting, ore geochemistry and alteration footprint of the gold mineralization associated with the Island Gold deposit. This open file contains the geochemical results and related information associated to these samples.
