North America's Mid-Continent Rift (MCR) hosts a wealth of mineral deposits, some of which have been exploited since ancient times. The last few years have seen many new developments, and several advanced projects are progressing towards production of critical metals, on both sides of the Canada-USA border. This session will provide an overview of the geology of the MCR and some of the current developments. Both the USGS and the GSC will report on current resesarch and compilation activities, followed by speakers from industry on a number of active projects.
Chair: Wouter Bleeker, Geological Survey of Canada, Ottawa & Katarina Bjorkman, Bjorkman Prospecting, Atikokan, Canada
