Petrogenesis and Metallogenesis of Polymetallic Cr-Ni-Cu-PGE Systems in the Superior Province, Canada


Geologist graduated from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. I was a Geology Intern from the PRONAGEO project, funded by the Brazilian Geological Survey aiming to identify several mineral occurrences in Minas Gerais, Brazil. My BSc project involved structural mapping, data integration, and mineral surveying in the Southern Brasilia fold belt. It later evolved to a MSc thesis detailing the geochemistry, geochronolgy, and tectonic evolution of the Neoproterozoic sedimentary and mafic-ultramafic successions of the area.

Research Project Title:

Petrogenesis and Metallogenesis of Polymetallic Cr-Ni-Cu-PGE Systems in the Superior Province, Canada

Project Description:

The project involves three components: 1) a study of co-existing Cr and Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization in the Shebandowan area of Western Ontario; 2) a study of co-existing Cr and Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization in the McFauld's Lake area of Northern Ontario; 3) a GIS-based metallogenic analysis of differences in abundance of Cr and Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization in different parts of the Superior Province.

Supervisors:

Michael Lesher and Michel G. Houle (GSC/HES)
