The gabbro body in the vicinity of the Woodland Dump was described by Ludman and Hill (1990) to consist of olivine norite
Stephen Gabbro consists of complexly intermingled olivine gabbro, olivine gabbronorite, and olivine norite
, with less abundant gabbro, gabbronorite, norite
, troctolite, anorthosite, and dunite.
Ore hosted in a norite
body within a large unexplored anorthosite complex.
5 kilometres as a funnel shaped embayment from the base of the norite
at the south central footwall contact of the Sudbury Irruptive and thins to a vertical or steeply dipping dyke averaging 40 metres in width and extending 19 kilometres to the south ("Copper Cliff Offset").
Several small bodies of coarse-grained norite
cumulates occur in the centre of the body.
Pyroxenite and norite
above the peridotite contain disseminated sulphides.
Two 45 degree angled drill holes on a SE bearing returned core lengths of 53m and 90m respectively of anorthosite and norite
breccia with massive ilmenite matrix.
harzburgite, olivine pyroxenite, and norite
This ground covers an unexplored part of the Sudbury Igneous Complex (SIC) contact just west of Falconbridge's Roland Lake Deposit, as well as a highly prospective and distinctive protuberance of SIC norite
that extends over 200 metres into the footwall and is associated with zones of well-defined Late Granite Breccia and Sudbury Breccia.
No mineralization was intercepted and the resistivity low was attributed to norite
with talc alteration.
This ground covers an unexplored part of the Sudbury Igneous Complex (SIC) contact south of the Foy Offset Dyke as well as a highly prospective and distinctive protuberance of the main SIC norite
into the footwall rocks.
The hole was collared on Norite
and intersected the contact between the Norite
and Bronzite - the geologic contact commonly located near the VEZ.
