REGIONAL AND LOCAL GEOLOGICAL SETTING

The property lies near the northeastern edge of a major zone of Phanerozoic rocks, termed the Interior Platform, which extends from the Rocky Mountains in the west to the Precambrian Canadian Shield in the northeast, close to Lac La Ronge. The unmetamorphosed sedimentary rocks of the Interior Platform unconformably overlie the metamorphic basement rocks in the project area (Figure 6.1). The Interior Platform sediments exceed 600 metres in thickness, reaching 1,000 metres in the northwest part of the property. The immediately underlying basement rocks are of Proterozoic age and are interpreted to form part of the Glennie Domain of the Churchill Province of the Canadian Shield. This poorly exposed zone outcrops east of La Ronge, where it comprises highly metamorphosed volcanic belts within gneissic and granitoid

terrains, and lower grade metasedimentary formations. The occur in a broad anticlinorium plunging to the northeast. interpreted to have been emplaced tectonically onto Archaean

highly metamorphosed sequences The Proterozoic assemblage is Superior Province basement rocks.
