Petrographic Analysis of the Flambeau Sulfide Ore Body
This project is designed to examine the mineralogy, texture, and composition of the ore body and to determine the base and precious metal phases that are present in the primary ore zone.
Lateral Stratigraphic Variations in the Volcanic Lithofacies of the Eisenbrey Zn-Cu-Pb VMS Deposit, Rusk County WI
The primary objective of this project is to complete a property-scale assessment of the volcanic and hydrothermal stratigraphy hosting the poorly understood Zn-Pb-Cu mineralization of the Eisenbrey deposit. The deposit is ...
Potential for Komatiite-Hosted Nickel-Copper Mineralization in the Eastern Part of the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt, Ontario, Canada
Our research focuses on geochemical and textural evidence of interactions between Archean komatiites and silicic sedimentary rocks near Thunder Bay, Ontario, and exploring the potential for Nickel-Copper-Platinum Group ...
Geology the Eisenbrey Zn-Cu-Pb Deposit, Rusk County, WI
The primary objective of this project is to complete a geochemical and petrographic study of the poorly understood Zn-Pb-Cu mineralization of the Eisenbrey deposit hosted in Precambrian volcanic assemblages (DeMatties, ...
Comparison of Hydrothermal Alteration Zones Associated with the Flambeau and Eisenbrey Massive Sulfide Deposits, Rusk County, WI
The Flambeau and Eisenbrey Cu-Zn-Pb-Au-Ag deposits are hosted within the Pembine-Wausau terrane of the Penokean Orogen, which is a 1.8-1.9 billion year old volcanic arc sequence consisting of volcanic and sedimentary rocks, ...
Ore Petrography and Composition Comparison of the Flambeau and Eisenbrey Massive Sulfide Deposits
Volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits are polymetallic mineral deposits that contain many base and precious metals such as copper, zinc, lead, gold, and silver. This study focuses on two Paleoproterozoic VMS deposits ...
Mapping the Precambrian Bedrock Geology of Rusk County, Wisconsin
The primary objective of this project is to create a new regional geologic map of Rusk County, Wisconsin, highlighting the characteristics of the Precambrian bedrock hosting the past-producing Flambeau Cu-Au mine and various ...
Geochemistry and petrography of the volcanic strata hosting the Flambeau Cu-Zn-Au Deposit in Rusk County, WI : A Re-Examination of Wisconsin's Only Past-Producing Volcanogenic Massive Sulfide Mine
This project aims to understand the stratigraphy, geochemistry, petrography, and alteration of the poorly understood Cu-Zn-Au Flambeau volcanogenic massive sulfide deposit. The Flambeau deposit is hosted by the Wisconsin ...
Reconstructing Paleoproterozoic Volcanism in Northwestern Wisconsin : Geochemistry of the Flambeau Cu-Zn-Au Mine
The Flambeau Cu-Zn deposit in northwestern Wisconsin, USA, is one of several volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits in the state but remains the only one that has been mined because of unfavorable state mining ...
Metamorphic Petrography and Geochemistry of a Garnetiferous Gneiss in the Tobacco Root Mountains, Southwestern Montana
Both our sample and the Australian garnet gneiss are made primarily of banded iron/manganese garnets, quartz, with lesser magnetite, and trace monzite, ilmenite, grunerite, and biotite. Our sample, the Australian gneiss, ...
