... associated with volcanogenic massive sulfides (VMS). The juvenile subduction-related origin of the Shield rocks and the pervasiveness of shearing and greenschist-to-amphibolite facies metamorphism associated with late Neoproterozoic orogeny are geologic features highly favorable for the development...

... of a Cretaceous accretionary prism. The metabasic rocks occur as blueschists and greenschists, whereas the metasedimentary rocks are former greywackes s.l ., or psammopelites, and can now be characterized as phyllites. Eight characteristic mineral assemblages can be defined within the metabasic sample suite...

... ( Castroviejo et al., 2011 ). Archean VMS deposits in the Abitibi subprovince of Canada are affected by regional greenschist metamorphism and polyphase deformation, where proximal hydrothermal alteration mineral assemblages are commonly replaced by metamorphic chlorite-clinozoisite-actinolite assemblages...
