Province: Superior

Geological Age: Precambrian  

Geology Comments

Feb 14, 2011 (J Bongfelt) - 'The rocks are Precambrian in age. These consist of metavolcanics with thin bands of metasediments, gabbros, and granites. The field relationship of these rocks indicated that metavolcanics are the oldest rocks and are intruded by both gabbros and granites.' (Kenora AF 52F/11SW, A-1, Boylen, Geological Report, p.3)

Lithology Comments

Feb 14, 2011 (J Bongfelt) - ' The other zone of importance is in the north. (Samples 14, 15, 20, 21, 22) It is traversed by two major faults and is marked by high fractured rocks all along the zone. Copper-pyrite dissemination is observed all along, though irregularly. Both samples 14 & 15 have given good values of copper.' (Kenora AF 52F/11SW, A-1, Boylen, Geological Report, p.10)
