Abstract

The Kidd Creek copper-zinc-silver deposit, situated in the Late Archean Abitibi greenstone belt of northeastern Ontario, represents one of the world’s largest and highest grade volcanogenic massive sul-fide deposits. Its discovery, in late 1963, not only marks a major event in Canadian exploration history, but is also intimately linked to the ascendence and successful application of the syngenetic volcanogenic concept in Canada. Events leading up to and surrounding the discovery are documented and provide a historical background to other contributions in this volume on the geology of the Kidd Creek deposit.
