stripes

Occurrence number: 
031-00-063
Country: 
Canada
Region: 
Ontario
Location: 
Longitude: -81.02, Latitude: 50.02

Currie (1976a, p. 130) says that the Goldray occurrence is almost identical to Argor. There is no outcrop, the whole being covered with Pleistocene deposits. An aeromagnetic map and location is given by Ferguson (1971, Map P.452 - revised). Further information has not been located.

Age: 
1695 Ma by K-Ar on biotite (Gittins et al., 1967 - James Bay Lowlands (South)).
