    The boundary between the PB and the APB to the southeast, the ABT, is most clearly delineated in the eastern half of the province. It is the locus of major crustal delamination along which high‐grade, mostly middle Proterozoic, polycyclic terranes were tectonically transported northwest toward and onto the PB.

    Of the current or past-producing 'gold-only' mines in the Superior Province of the Canadian Shield which have produced more than , tons of ore, the 33 mines which have produced one million ounces or more of gold have accounted for over 84o/o of the total production of million ounces. Geological History of Canada Laurentia, which makes up the core of North America, is the largest and arguably the oldest of Earth’s cratons (regions of stable ancient crust). Some of the rocks are over 4 billion years old, and Laurentia has been together in its present form for the last billion years.

    Two main geological provinces of the Canadian Shield are represented in Ontario. The Superior Province and autochthonous cover sequences underlie approximately 80% of the province of Ontario, distributed mainly across the north and northwest. The Grenville Province, exposed in the southeast, and its autochthonous cover, make up the remainder.   Geochemistry is the study of the chemical composition of Earth and its rocks and minerals. In order to determine the chemical composition of the landscape, the Ontario Geological Survey undertakes sampling programs across the province that target a variety of materials.

The Superior Craton is a stable crustal block covering Quebec, Ontario, and southeast Manitoba in Canada, and northern Minnesota in the United is the biggest craton among those formed during the Archean period. A craton is a large part of the Earth's crust that has been stable and subjected to very little geological changes over a long time.

The size of Superior Craton is about. Regional geochemistry is the study of the spatial variation in the chemical composition of materials at the surface of the Earth, on a scale of tens to thousands of ant parameters to consider when designing or evaluating a geochemical survey are: Areal extent of the survey; Sampling density.

Because major element geochemistry of the rocks was modified during ore- forming processes and later by several episodes of metamorphism and tectonism, the present alteration minerals merely reflect the cumulative effect(s) of these episodes and are often misleading in the identification of the protoliths.

The Canadian Shield, also called the Laurentian Plateau, or Bouclier canadien (French), is a large area of exposed Precambrian igneous and high-grade metamorphic rocks (geological shield) that forms the ancient geological core of the North American continent (the North American Craton or Laurentia).Composed of igneous rock resulting from its long volcanic history, the area is covered by a.

The timing of lode-gold and rare-element-pegmatite mineralization within the Superior Province corresponds closely with metamorphic evolution; it is consistent with models whereby gold-bearing fluids and pegmatite-forming melts develop, in part, as a result of.

The southeastern Superior Province of the Canadian Shield preserves a very complete record of the accretion and deformation of juvenile crust during a Ma period, Ma through Ma. Other articles where Superior province is discussed: North America: The Canadian Shield: to the northeast, and the Superior craton to the south of the intervening nonrigid Churchill province, which may be composite in origin.

The structural grain of the cratons is truncated at their margins, suggesting that they originated by the fragmentation of larger continents that formed more than Tectonic map of North America, showing location of the Archean Superior Province at the core of the Canadian Shield (after Hoffman, ).

His PhD thesis was ‘Lake sediment geochemistry in the Superior province of the Canadian Shield.’ In conjunction with colleagues at the Geological Survey of Canada, this work evolved to both regional and follow-up geochemical surveying of the Canadian Shield under the Uranium Reconnaissance Program.

Geochemical Provinces some regions and areas characterized by the predominance of certain chemical elements (in igneous rock termed “specialization” of a chemical element) and a lack of others.

Geochemical provinces appear as a deviation from the ratios of the mean contents of chemical elements in the earth’s crust; the greater the deviation, the.

Abstract. At least 12 granulite occurrences, ranging in size from a few 10’s tokm2, are exposed in the Archean Superior Province. Primary lithotectonic subdivision of the Superior Province into linear volcano-plutonic and metasedimentary gneiss belts has led to interpretation of these components as magmatic arcs and accretionary prisms respectively, assembled in the interval between.
