Structure and Stratifigraphy of the Indin Lake Greenstone Belt (detailed bedrock mapping)
Principal Investigator: Pehrsson, Sally J
Licensed Year(s): 1996 1995 1994
Summary: This will be the final summer of work for this phase of mapping in Indin Lake. The mapping data (including structural, petrological, geochemical &geochronological) will enable a detailed geological history of the project area to be constructed. This will include timing of major events, including volcanism, plutonism and sedimentation, and subsequent deformation. The results will be presented in...
