The Bald Mountain deposit, a medium-sized (30 Mt) volcanic-hosted massive sulfide (VHMS) deposit of Early Ordovician age in northern Maine, was selected for detailed study because it is one of the best-preserved such deposits in the world. The massive sulfide lies within a 5-km-thick stratigraphic section that forms the Bald Mountain sequence. This study focuses on the volcanic and sedimentary evolution of the Bald Mountain sequence, with the goal of understanding the controls of deep-water volcanotectonic processes on the generation of massive sulfide mineralization.
