The Grenville Province Orogeny is massive geological province that's commonly known as the Lower Laurentia. Much of the rocks within this geological province is known to heavily consist of Marble, Pegmatite, Limestone, organic remains, dolostone, gabbro, hornblende, diorite, quartz, Iron and gossan. Some of the minerals which are associated with these structural formations are known to included the following: Azurite, Platinum, gold, silver, rare earth elements, pyrochlore, sodalite, feldspars, beryl, zirconia, uranium, nickel, copper-chalcopyrite, palladium, magnesium, and fluorites. For the most part, the Grenville Province is known to have been formed by volcanics at high and low temperatures. These volcanics are also known to be archean, and Paleozoic in age that were once active vents under what was known as the Champlean Sea. Much of the area at the time was covered by water, and North, Central, and South American were not split up yet into their continental plates. At about several millions years ago, these volcanics had stop their vending process in which formed these minerals. It was also at one point in time when these volcanics had once again started vending before they were cooled down. Prior to this, it was the main source in which had decomposed the mineralogy in the area.
Over the last two years i have been engaged in studying the geological provinces, and time periods in Grenville. This had resulted in minor occurrences, with some larger ones like the Richardson Mine Site in Eldorado, Ontario, Canada. The A's Pyrochlore Platinum, and Azurite deposit is a grain project under study, and located in the City of Barrie, Ontario, Canada. Its more of residential prospect that's under a belt of minerals, and continuous at depth. For the most part, the Pyrochlore is what makes several rare-earth elements along with great nickel alloys and platinum. The A's Pyrochlore Platinum/Azurite Deposit is known to consist of calcite, and pyrochlore in grain sizes that are scattered with specs of platinum within a Carbonitite. In several cases, the platinum is known to be distributed by the Pyrochlore that's carbonized by calcite which becomes a strong indicator of Nickel Alloys, and Platinum. At this point in time there is no rock formation anywhere besides vegetation . Plans are being aimed at digging out a trench to a depth of 6 feet in hopes of hitting a formation of some type. We have so far also found specs of Azurite within the grain size carbonitite pyrochlore which are indicators of deep copper deposits. Some of the platinum is also distributed within calcite only, and has no pyrochlore, and carries significant amounts of PGE. The A's Pyrochlore Platinum/Azurite Deposit was discovered by Alex Omanski, and is currently undergoing bulk sampling. Trenching followed by soil sampling will be taking place in the fall.
Prior to this most of the rocks that come from this area are uplifted, which is known as vertical movement of the Earth Lithosphere. These movements in some case maybe describe as slow and gentle in which involves a broad up-wrapping over a long period, or sudden, and dramatic. When uplifting occurs its commonly known to bring up igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks that are brought up to the surface, and become exposed to weathering, and erosion. In many cases uplifts may be caused due to pressure of the plate tectonics, or it can also occur in response to removing excess weight. Sedimentary rocks such as Azurite is known to be produce by copper-bearing rocks in which are exposed to carbonated water as they are geologically uplifted. (Will be providing igneous rock samples shortly)
In the mean time, Pyrochlore is commonly known to produce rare earth elements. These can included uranium, uraninite, thorium, yttrium, niobium, allanite, calumbite, etc.
Bed Rock within this area is current reported by geological mapping to be between 400 and 600 feet. This is also covered by overburden, soil, clay, and lithication in place. From this a huge amount of stress along with weight is known to accumulate in order to make an uplift process. Many of these areas are currently understudy in providing great geological evidence to geologist. Some factors also occur as these uplifts can be anywhere between one meter, and several kilometers from the original deposit area. Mantles also become apart of this process as earth quakes, and the movement of plate tectonics accumulates stress, weight, and lithications.
About the Discovery A's Pyrochlore Platinum Azurite Deposit is an uplift of possible weight factors that engage in this process. Barrie is commonly known to have a mixutre of overburden, sand, soil, and clay that places weight on bedrock at about 400 to 600 feet. These are uneven arches that cause small elevations as uplifting, and lithications occur. In some cases a mixture of minerals can be associated, and secondary minerals such as azurite replace the copper. Pyrrhotite also becomes apart the sulphide mineralizations, and pyrochlore distributes rare earth minerals such as Columbium and makes 0.05% for uranium content. A minor amount of feldspar porphyry also occurs due to the possibly of faults that may also cause uplifting processes.
