INTRODUCTION GEOLOGICAL ENVIRONMENTS FOR MAGMATIC SULFIDE DEPOSITS Nickel is a scarce commodity in the Canadian Cordillera, and there are currently no active nickel mines in British Columbia. The most notable past producer was the Giant Mascot (Pacific Nickel or Pride of Emory) mine (1958-1974) near Hope which processed some 4.2 million tonnes of sulfide ore averaging 0.77 wt. % Ni, 0.33 wt. % Cu, 0.68 g/t Au and 0.34 p/t PGE (platinum-group elements). The ore resided in an ultramatic phase of… CONTINUE READING
