Lar Cu-Zn project, northwestern Manitoba, 1984.

Project Description

Between 1984 and 1989, much emphasis was placed on studies around known gold occurrences.  Around 1984, work was undertaken near the Lar Cu-Zn deposit in the Laurie Lake area, northwestern Manitoba because:

1. the bedrock geology had been recently mapped;

2. a relatively large base metal deposit is a better indication of down-ice glacial dispersal than a much smaller gold occurrence; and

3. the extent of the mineralization is not well known and till sampling may clarify the possible western extension of the deposit.

The data are published in Manitoba Energy and Mines, Open File OF91-4.
