Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The southern Grenville Province is widely recognized for its mineral specimens, diversity, and associated deposits. Many samples grace private collections and museums worldwide and serve as a source of garnet, wollastonite, talc, titanium, and other commodities derived from world-class mineral deposits. Occurrences known for more than a century continue to yield exceptional specimens and new mineral species, while others have been lost to time. Grenville minerals are known for their size, variety, unique geologic settings, and abundance, providing insight into the unique geological processes that formed them. Environments range from the deep orogenic crust, to alkaline intrusions and carbonatite, massif anorthosite and related rocks, iron deposits, vein-dykes, skarns, shear zones, and vast areas underlain by thick metamorphosed calc-silicate, carbonate rocks, and evaporitic rocks, among others. This Special Issue invites papers that explore the paragenesis of minerals and mineral deposits from the southern Grenville Province of Quebec, Ontario, and New York.
