Greenstone belt architecture and metal endowment within the Abitibi Terrane

The course will focus on the gold and base metal endowment of Archean granite to greenstone terranes within the Superior Craton at regional to camp and deposit scales utilizing integrated 4D architecture interpretations derived from surface geology, geochronology and geophysical surveys. The course will highlight new results from Laurentian University’s Metal Earth program where in excess of 1,000 km of reflection seismic, magnetotelluric and gravity surveys have provided some of the highest resolution crustal imaging across transects of up to 130 km in length within the Abitibi and the Wabigoon terranes.

The geophysical studies are complemented by studies at craton to transect scales, which emphasize integration of field, laboratory, geochemical and isotopic results providing new insights into the geological and metallogenic framework of Archean granite to greenstone terranes, their relationship to metasedimentary terranes, the mantle metal reservoirs underlying granite-greenstone terranes, and the architecture of the structural conduits controlling endowment via upward migration of melts and mineralizing hydrothermal fluids. The course will consist of presentations by Metal Earth’s principal investigators and researchers.
