      Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide Deposits. Much of the copper, zinc, lead, silver, and gold mined in Canada is mined from volcanic-hosted massive sulfide (VHMS) deposits associated with submarine volcanism (VMS deposits). Examples are the deposits at Kidd Creek, Ontario, Flin Flon on the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border, Britannia on Howe Sound, and Myra .

    Gold Mining in New Brunswick The main source of gold in New Brunswick has been as a by-product from the smelting of base-metal sulphide deposits including Brunswick, Caribou, and Murray Brook mines in the northern part of the province. About kg of gold was recovered from Brunswick (5 on Fig. 1) base-metalFile Size: 1MB. The Caribou Zn-Pb-Cu-Ag volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit located in northeast New Brunswick represents a significant base-metal resource in the Bathurst Mining Camp. Zinc, Pb and Cu are the primary resources that are being extracted from this deposit; however, Au and Ag are important by-products that could help offset costs.

Massive sulphide deposits, New Brunswick by A. L McAllister Download PDF EPUB FB2

There is a subclass of VMS deposits, the volcanic- and sediment-hosted massive sulfide (VSHMS) deposits, that do share characteristics that are hybrid between the VMS and SEDEX deposits. Notable examples of this class include the deposits of the Bathurst Camp, New Brunswick, Canada (e.g., Brunswick #12); the deposits of the Iberian Pyrite Belt.

McClenaghan. Deposits of the Zn-Pb-Cu group are in stratigraphic settings dominated either by felsic volcanic rocks, as in the Green New Brunswick. book belt of Japan and in Tasmania, or by subequal amounts of felsic volcanic and sedimentary strata, as at Bathurst, New Brunswick, and in the Iberian pyrite belt.

Volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits of the Newfoundland Appalachians: An overview of their setting, classification, grade-tonnage data. Seafloor massive sulfide deposits or SMS deposits, are modern equivalents of ancient volcanogenic massive sulfide ore deposits or VMS deposits.

The term has been coined by mineral explorers to differentiate the modern deposit from the ancient. SMS deposits were first recognized during the exploration of the deep oceans and the mid ocean ridge spreading centers in the.

The deposits consist of a massive sulphide cap that formed on the seafloor and sort of lies parallel between two stratigraphy and an underlying feeder zone or streamer zone as it is usually called.

VMS is basically mushroom shaped, Streamer zone tends to be copper rather than zinc rich. VMS deposits often form as clusters over a large intrusive. of new massive sulphide discovery might be as follows: massive sulphide deposits are small, difficult to find targets.

For every large, high grade deposit, there are likely to be large numbers of small, lower grade deposits. Massive sulphides generally. In the Bathurst District of New Brunswick there are more than 50 known occurrences of base metal sulphide mineralization within an area of Palaeozoic volcanic-sedimentary rocks approximately bounded by the Rocky Turn deposit in the north, the Key Anacon deposit in the east, the Heath Steele deposit in the south, and the Devil's Elbow deposit in the by: 6.

The B athurst Mining Camp, established in Ordovician volcanic and sedimentary rocks, is host to over Zn-Pb-Cu volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) occurrences (McCutcheon, ).These include 37 deposits with defined tonnage. Massive sulfides are composed of relatively high density minerals in comparison to the minerals that constitute the host rocks of the adjacent.

The Brunswick #12 and #6 mines are located 30 km SSW of the city of Bathurst in northern New Brunswick (#Location: 47° 28' 23'N, 65° 53' 23"W). Heath Steele is a further 20 km SW of Brunswick #12 and 51 km northwest of Newcastle. At least 35 deposits and over Zn-Pb-Cu occurrences are known within the Bathurst Mining Camp (#Location: 47° 17' 25'N, 66° 4' 14"W).
