Project Geology

The Barbara Lithium Project lies in the Quetico Subprovince of the Superior Province, bounded by the granite-greenstone Wabigoon Subprovince to the north and Wawa Subprovince to the south.

Figure 2 – Project Geology Map

This Quetico Subprovince consists dominantly of clastic metasediments with inter‐formational chemical metasediments, which deposited between 2.70 and 2.69 Ga. The clastic metasediments represent a strongly metamorphosed turbidite sequence varying from arenaceous to argillaceous with local conglomerates units. Banded iron formations within the metasediments consist of ferruginous chert, oxide (magnetite‐chert) and sulphide (sulphide‐ chert) facies with localised graphite. There are numerous pegmatite and diabase dykes cross- cutting the clastic and chemical metasediments. General younging is to the north, but there are local south overturns. The rocks of the Quetico Subprovince have undergone lower amphibolite metamorphism.
