Geology of the Matachewan Consolidated Mine, Northern Ontario

THE gold orebodies of the Matachewan Consolidated mine are of particular interest geologically because of their odd shapes, their apparent lack of connection one with another, and the fact that they occur in a number of different formations. All of the orebodies exhibit a similar fracture pattern and the areas of fracturing appear related to the local folding . However, the lack of either horizontal or vertical continuity suggests additional controls not yet discovered.
