 Geology and Cu-Ni-PGE Deposits of the 1.1 Ga Duluth Complex, Northeastern Minnesota

Occurring at the northeast end of the Mesabi Iron Range in northeastern Minnesota are world class deposits of Cu-Ni-PGE sulfide ore associated with the 1.1 billion year old igneous rocks of the Duluth Complex. This talk will summarize the geological circumstances that led to the formation these deposits and the Duluth Complex intrusions that host them.

 Géologie et gisements de Cu-Ni-ÉGP du Complexe de Duluth de 1,1 Ga, dans le nord-est du Minnesota

À l’extrémité nord-est du district ferrifère de Mesabi, dans le nord-est du Minnesota, se trouvent des gisements de minerai sulfuré de Cu-Ni-ÉGP de classe mondiale, associés aux roches ignées du Complexe de Duluth âgées de 1,1 milliard d’années. La présente allocution passera en revue les circonstances géologiques qui ont mené à la formation de ces gisements, ainsi que les intrusions du Complexe de Duluth qui les renferment.
