Information leading to the delineation of this focus area

Basis for focus area Focus area for the Peavy Pond Complex (recently dated at 1850 Ma) is comprised of hornblende metagabbro, hornblende metadiorite, and felsic rocks, and has undergone several episodes of deformation and metamorphism.

Geologic maps Bayley (1959), scale 1:24,000.
Geophysical data Rank 1 aeromagnetic coverage acquired by Earth MRI in 2022.
Favorable rocks and structures The Peavey Pond Complex is comprised of hornblende metagabbro, bronzite hornblende metagabbro, bronzite metanorite, hornblende metadiorite, metatonalite, granodiorite, and granite, intruded into metasedimentary rocks. Hydrothermal/metamorphic mineralizing fluids may have moved along major structures in the area.
