    Pelangio and its 50% joint venture partner, Newmont Mining Corp. of Canada Ltd. control approximately 52 square miles of under-explored area located on the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt. The property includes an option to acquire from Placer Dome the Detour Lake mine, which produced approximately million ounces of gold. The Abitibi granite-greenstone belt has long been known for its’ world-class Archean lode gold deposits. With exploration and production commencing in the early nineteen hundreds and continuing into the twenty-first century, this prolific mining camp is rich in history, research and precious/base metals. The Thunder Creek deposit and Hwy gold prospect are two recently discovered and Author: Robert A Campbell.

Submarine volcanism was followed by the deposition of large amounts of sedimentary material derived from a shallow marine or subaerial hinterland, created as a result of crustal thickening during an. Exceptionally extensive natural processes are required to concentrate gold from crustal background levels into gold deposits.

For example, four thousand tonnes of gold have been mined from the km by km Abitibi greenstone belt of Canada (Kerrich, ).Cited by: The abitibi gold belt is a region of Canada that extends from Wawa, Ontario Geochemistry of gold deposits in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt book Val-d'Or, d within the mineral-rich Abitibi greenstone belt, the gold belt is an established gold mining district having produced over mines, and million ounces of gold since Timmins, a town founded in following the porcupine gold rush and subsequent creation of the Hollinger.

The Abitibi greenstone belt is a 2,to-2,million-year-old greenstone belt that spans across the Ontario–Quebec border in Canada. It is mostly made of volcanic rocks, but also includes ultramafic rocks, mafic intrusions, granitoid rocks, and early and middle Precambrian sediments.

Geographical extent. The Abitibi greenstone belt is one of the world's largest Archean greenstone belts. The Abitibi greenstone belt is of outstanding economic importance as it contains some of the most important gold and base metal mining camps in Canada, with a total endowment of over million metric tonnes (Mt) of polymetallic massive sulfide ore (Mercier-Langevin et al., ) contained in volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits and over 4, t of gold (Dubé and Gosselin,   The Paleoproterozoic Central Lapland Greenstone Belt (CLGB) hosts a number of orogenic gold deposits, the total reported gold endowment being Moz.

Genetic models of the orogenic gold deposits suggest that the gold source for these deposits is the rocks undergoing metamorphism at depth. If a metamorphic source model is applied to the.

A distinct group of gold deposits in the Abitibi greenstone belt is spatially associated with quartz-monzonite to syenite stocks and dikes.

The deposits occur mainly along major fault zones, in association with preserved slivers of alluvial–fluvial, Timiskaming-type, sedimentary rocks. The deposits consist of disseminated sulfide replacement zones with variably developed stockworks of quartz Cited by: Geology of the Abitibi Belt The Abitibi greenstone belt in Canada (Fig.

In this slide and those following, the USGS’s criteria for high potential for lode gold deposits is matched against the geology, mineralogy, and mineralization of the International Falls Area. The International Falls Area has all of the diagnostic criteria for lode gold deposits.

The Macassa Gold Mine is the only operational mine (Lac-Minerals Ltd., Macassa Division) of seven original gold producers in the Kirkland Lake camp of northern Ontario, Canada. The gold deposit is in Archaean volcanic and sedimentary rocks which have been intruded by a composite syenite stock.

The mineralization has taken place in two stages. The first stage is not gold bearing but involves Cited by: 4. Essentially all rocks in greenstone belts have slightly higher than normal gold content. Those in the South Pass greenstone belt typically average 2 to 10 times the amount of gold as average crustal abundance, thus these provided an excellent source for gold deposits that likely formed during regional metamorphism and deformation (Hausel, ).Author: The Gem Hunter.
