Abitibi Greenstone Belt

The Abitibi Greenstone Belt, along with the Fraser Institute deeming it the 4th most attractive mining jurisdiction in the world, is home to dozens of world class deposits including:

  • Val-d'Or
  • Chibougamau 
  • Kirkland Lake
  • Timmins 
  • Detour Lake
  • Malartic
  • Bousquet
  • Rouyn-Noranda
  • Larder Lake

The Abitibi is renowned as the world's largest mineral-rich greenstone geological belt. The geological structure spans 450 km long by 150 km wide and runs through the Canadian Shield, from west of Timmins, Ontario, then eastward to Chibougamau, Quebec. The region's history hosts over 100 mines that have aggregately produced an excess of 170 million ounces of gold. While the belt is known primarily for its prolific gold mines, base metal production in the region is also substantial at over 400 million ounces of silver, 15 billion tons of copper, and 35 billion tons of zinc.
