  • The Nain Plutonic Suite (NPS), about 1.30 Ga, underlies some 19,000 km², intruding the boundary between Middle to Late Archean rocks in the east (Nain Province) and Late Archean and Early Proterozoic rocks in the west (Churchill Province). Nd isotopic compositions in most igneous units of the NPS reflect their geographic position relative to the inferred boundary between the Nain and Churchill Provinces. Rare exceptions are local intrusions of olivine-bearing basic rocks with highest… CONTINUE READING
