|Description: The field trip will focus on the regional geologic setting and nature of volcanism for the rocks that host the iron oxide-apatite (IOA) and iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) mineral deposits in the Mesoproterozoic St. Francois Mountain terrane of southeast Missouri, USA. The participants will examine drill core from several of the known deposits and visit outcrop examples of the least altered host rocks and the alteration mineral assemblages associated with the IOA and IOCG mineralizing systems. Newly acquired airborne aeromagnetic and radiometric geophysical data will be examined in the context of the regional geology to provide a holistic understanding of the rock type distribution, alteration, and location of known iron oxide ore deposits.|
