Significance of magma mingling and mixing during the formation of the host-rock successions of Archean massive sulfide deposits in the Noranda camp, Abitibi subprovince, Quebec, The
The Noranda mining district contains some of the most important volcanic-hosted massive sulfide deposits of the Neoarchean Abitibi subprovince of northern Ontario and Quebec. With a historic production of 54.3 Mt of ore grading 2.2% Cu and 6.1 g/t Au, the Horne deposit was the largest base and precious metal producer within the district. The Quemont deposit, located just north of the Horne mine, was the second largest producer with a historic production of 13.9 Mt of ore grading 1.31% Cu and 5.38g/t Au. The Horne mine is hosted by a felsic-dominated volcanic succession that is crosscut by mafic ...
