The vein-hosted gold deposits in the Bissett area of SE Manitoba have long produced significant amounts of gold and the area has the potential for future substantial discoveries. Given the strong structural control on ore formation, a concerted research effort has been conducted on the structural geology of the deposits. However, there are several outstanding questions, including the genetic relationship between the host rock and the ore. Specifically, it has been long considered that gold mineralization occurs only in one specific rock type; however, recent discoveries have contradicted this notion. This project will address the genetic link between gold-bearing veins and host rocks. The objective is to assist exploration efforts and improve discovery probability in the area.
