Abstract: The world-class Buchans Mining Camp hosts a number of high-grade, low-tonnage volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) deposits. The Lundberg and Engine House zones form the lower-grade stockwork to the Lucky Strike deposit and have yet to be mined. A detailed study of the Lundberg and Engine House zones was conducted to establish the stratigraphic setting of the deposits, to determine the petrology of the host volcanic rocks and distribution of alteration facies, and to characterize the mineralization with the goal of improving exploration for polymetallic massive sulfide deposits in the Buchans camp.
