The Canadian Malartic low-grade bulk tonnage gold mine (total production and reserves of 303.3 t or 10.7 Moz at 0.97 g/t) is located in the Archean Abitibi greenstone belt, immediately south of the crustal-scale Larder Lake-Cadillac fault zone. The deposit is predominantly hosted in clastic metasedimentary rocks of the Pontiac Group and, to a lesser extent, in subalkaline porphyritic quartz monzodiorite and granodiorite. The quartz monzodiorite and granodiorite yielded syn-Timiskaming U-Pb ID-TIMS zircon ages of 2677.8 ± 1.5 and 2678.4 ± 1.7 Ma, respectively.
