...Dennis O. Nelson; Donald A. Morrison; William C. Phinney Abstract The 2.45 Ga Matachewan–Hearst dike swarm was emplaced over 250 000 km 2 in diverse granitoid–greenstone and metasedimentary terranes of the Superior Province of Canada. The Fe-rich tholeiitic dikes host large, uniform plagioclase...

... of the Canadian Shield near Sudbury, Ontario. The East Bull Lake intrusive suite is part of a regional Paleoproterozoic magmatic event, extending from 2.49 to 2.44 Ga, which also includes bimodal volcanic rocks, felsic plutons, and the regionally extensive Hearst and Matachewan dike swarms. This regional magmatic...

... mineral – whole-rock isochron age from one KGC sample is 2450 ± 30 Ma, identical to U–Pb ages for the Hearst–Matachewan dike swarm, a prominent feature in the KGC area. Regression of whole-rock and mineral-isotope data for one granitoid sample with a U–Pb zircon age of 2696 ± 1.5 Ma gives identical ages...

Hypersaline CaCl 2 formation brines evolved in Paleoproterozoic glaciogenic sediments; these penetrated into the Archean basement where they redistributed gold and are pervasively present as low-temperature secondary brine inclusions. The Matachewan (2.5 Ga) and Hearst dyke swarms drove...
