The Sulphide Lake Gold-Bearing Belt, Lac La-Ronge District, Saskatchewan

A LITTLE north of the geographic centre of the Province of Saskatchewan, 150 miles north of the city of Prince Albert, is a narrow greenstone and sedimentary belt of pronounced structural characteristics. This belt, generally known as the Sulphide Lake belt, is about two and a half miles wide. During the past three years prospecting has uncovered numerous gold-bearing showings occurring chiefly along the centre of the belt for a distance of at least nine miles. The number of these showings, the nature of some of them, and their relationship to strong structural features, make it altogether likely that intensive work will eventually locate ore-bodies that will be of economic importance.
