Locality type:


A deposit located NE of Guinecourt Lake, west of Manicouagan Reservoir.

Ni-, Cu- and Pd-enriched sulphide mineralization. Medium-grained leucogabbro (with an anorthosite core) with disseminated sulphides, massive sulphide veins, sterile quartz veins and a pegmatite dyke (with chalcopyrite, pyrite and malachite). Remobilation of a Ni-Cu-Pd mineralization after an important metamorphic event.
