The Maskinonge Lake Fault in the Michipicoten Greenstone Belt, Ontario: Kinematics, Timing and Controls on Gold Mineralization

The Island Gold mine, owned by Alamos Gold Inc., operates on one of the highest-grade gold deposits in Canada. Many gold deposits, including the Island Gold mine, follow east-west-trending structures, but the northwest-trending Maskinonge Lake Fault, located east of the mine, is uniquely enriched with gold and therefore contradicts this model.

Geochemical, structural and (thermo)chronological controls on the Au-Ag-Cu-Pb-Zn-Mo metallogeny of the west-central Neotethyan Orogenic Belt: A deposit-district-belt scale approach

The proposed geological research project is collaboration between UBC and industry sponsors to evaluate the nature of metallic resources in NW Turkey. Undeveloped concentrations of gold, silver and copper occur in the study region; these occurrences are being actively explored by the partner organizations. In the interest of the partner companies this research project focuses on an area that completely covers mineral tenure licenses owned by the companies.
