Preliminary Results from Detailed Geological Mapping and Core Logging of Volcanic and Sedimentary Rocks in the Footprint of the Kerr–Addison Mine, Virginiatown, Ontario
This paper summarizes the preliminary results of the first summer of field work related to the senior author’s MSc thesis. Detailed geological and structural mapping was undertaken in select locations in Virginiatown and on the Kerr–Addison Mine property, located in northeastern Ontario, approximately 35 km east of Kirkland Lake, along Highway 66. The study area lies within the southern Abitibi Subprovince of the Superior Province, along the Larder–Cadillac deformation zone (LCDZ; Figure 38.1). This work is part of the multiyear Metal Earth project carried out by MERC (Mineral Exploration Research Centre, Laurentian University, Sudbury).
