The Nain area comprises a diverse assemblage of metamorphic and igneous rocks. The former are assumed to be part of the Archean Nain Province, whereas most of the latter are assumed to be part of the Nain Plutonic Suite (NPS) and thus a reflection of Mesoproterozoic anorogenic magmatism. However, some gneissose and plutonic rocks are of equivocal stratigraphic affinity. Some of the latter rocks are assigned a Paleoproterozoic age, but the former lack any features that could be employed to… CONTINUE READING
