PowerPoint PresentationSwayze Timmins
Major deformation zones
1) Overall goals
unconformities, provenance and depositional
of banded iron formation for the Swayze
stratigraphy and syngenetic mineralization
of different volcanic terrains
through Swayze
the goals are to:
Identify and map critical rock units throughout the belt
Improve the stratigraphy and architecture of key volcanic
and sedimentary successions and their internal
relationships (thereby improving further geophysical
interpretations - e.g., seismic and MT)
Solve the question whether the volcanic stratigraphy
represents a continuum or its comprised of an
amalgamation of unrelated volcanic terrains?
Assess the potential for base and
precious metal mineralization
