Lapland’s Au and Ni-Cu-PGE Systems in Finland
This guidebook on the gold and magmatic Cu-Ni-PGE deposits of Lapland highlights deposit characteristics, their diversity, and temporal and spatial relationships. The tectonic setting and relationship to the general geodynamic evolution of the Fennoscandian Shield are examined as well. In addition, deposit-scale controls and structural features are considered to understand the ore genesis. Areas covered include the Portimo Layered Complex, Kevitsa intrusion, Pahtavaara gold mine, Sakatti deposit, Risti and Launi gold projects, Mustajärvi orogenic gold occurrence, Suurikuusikko gold deposit (Kittilä mine), and Rjapalot gold-cobalt project.
