SEG Workshop: Greenstone Belt Architecture and Metal Endowment of the Superior Craton

SEG 2021 Post-conference Workshop

Greenstone Belt Architecture and Metal Endowment of the Superior Craton

September 22 & 23, 2021

This workshop will highlight the variable mineral endowment of Archean granite-greenstone terranes of the Superior Craton focussing on the 3D structural architecture of these terranes derived from surface geology, reflection seismic, and magnetotelluric studies.

The symposium will highlight new results from Laurentian University’s Metal Earth program where in excess of 1,000 km of reflection seismic, magnetotelluric and gravity geophysical surveys have provided some of the highest resolution imaging across transects within the Abitibi and the Wabigoon terranes.

The contributions will emphasize integration of field and laboratory geological, geochemical and geophysical studies providing new insights into the geological and metallogenic framework of granite-greenstone terranes, their relationship to metasedimentary terranes, the mantle metal reservoirs underlying granite-greenstone terranes, and the architecture of the structural conduits controlling the upward migration of melts and mineralizing hydrothermal fluids.

The course will consist of presentations by Metal Earth researchers.
