2019 Ontario Prospectors Exploration Showcase

April 2–3
Here we GOLD again?
Valhalla Inn, Thunder Bay

Staff of the Mines and Minerals Division, Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines, will be participating in the 2019 Ontario Prospectors Exploration Showcase in Thunder Bay. This year’s theme, Here we GOLD again?, is about the exciting discoveries that continue to make Ontario one of the most attractive places in the world to explore. Ministry staff will be presenting posters and talks on recent field work, geoscience projects and initiatives, and summaries of current exploration activities in Ontario. The showcase provides an excellent forum for members of Ontario’s prospector, mining and exploration community to gather for the exchange of geoscience and exploration information. For registration and other information about the showcase, please visit the Ontario Prospectors Association Web site.

Erratum

Preliminary Map P.3823, Precambrian Geology of Drury Township, Southwest Sudbury Structure (released December 19, 2018), was published with an error in the geological legend. The description for unit 4 should read “Mafic Intrusive Rocks (likely correlative to the Matachewan dike swarm) (2480 to 2446 Ma)i ”, where the footnote “i” indicates that the age range is based on rock unit ages from Heaman (1997) and Bleeker et al. (2012). The descriptions of subunits 4a, 4b and 4c are correct.

This error has been corrected and a replacement map is available. If you purchased a copy of this map, please contact Publication Sales and a replacement map will be sent to you free of charge. Alternatively, and for clients who downloaded the map from GeologyOntario, the corrected version of Preliminary Map P.3823 is available to download.

We regret any inconvenience this error may have caused.
