Geologic setting

Geologic description

There are five main rock types underlying the Kuk-Imp prospect: coarse grained graphitic quartz-muscovite-chlorite schist; coarse grained quartz-muscovite schist; porphyroblastic quartz-muscovite-feldspar schist; quartz-carbonate-muscovite schist; and actinolitic marble. All units are complexly folded and some faults are mapped in the area. The porphyroblastic unit is thought to be a metamorphosed volcanic flow or sub-volcanic plug (unpublished Noranda report, 1975).
