Volume C1 of the DNAG’s Geology of North America, this page bok contains a description of the geology and mineral deposits of the Superior Province of the Canadian Shield, an overview of Grenville Province geology, and a synopsis of Precambrian fossil occurrences in North America.

The geology of Ontario consists of the study of the rock formations in the most populated province of Canada. Ontario has some of the oldest rocks on Earth.

It is made up of ancient Precambrian igneous and metamorphic rock and overlain by younger sedimentary rocks and soils. About 61% of the province is covered by the Canadian shield can further be divided into three.

The Grenville orogeny was a long-lived Mesoproterozoic mountain-building event associated with the assembly of the supercontinent record is a prominent orogenic belt which spans a significant portion of the North American continent, from Labrador to Mexico, as well as to Scotland.

Grenville orogenic crust of mid-late Mesoproterozoic age (c. – Ma) is found worldwide, but. Minerals of the Grenville Province: New York, Ontario, and Québec: Chiarenzelli, Jeffrey, Robinson, George W, Bainbridge, Michael: Books - 5/5(3).

The Grenville Front is a major discontinuity of the North American continent resulting from the collision of the Allochton with the existing rocks (Autochton) in southeastern Superior Province.

It is generally accepted that the Grenville Front is the first major manifestation of Archean rock deep crustal horizon uplift (Rivers et al., The Emplacement History of the Elzevir Batholith Relative to the Regional Deformation of the Supracrustal Rocks in the Central Metasedimentary Belt, Grenville Province, Southeastern Ontario Queen's University.

The collision crumpled the crust, creating a tall mountain range that stretched from Canada to Mexico: the Grenville Mountains. These mountains are the earliest evidence of mountain building in our region.

The rocks studied in southeastern Ontario were deposited or emplaced between and m.y. ago and were not derived from an ancient sialic basement such as that found north of the Grenville front.

On the basis of geological, geophysical, and geochronological data, the Grenville Province has been divided into three first-order longitudinal belts, the Parautochthonous Belt (PB), Allochthonous Polycyclic Belt (APB), and Allochthonous Monocyclic Belt (AMB). These are set apart by three first-order tectonic boundaries, the Grenville Front (GF), Allochthon Boundary Thrust (ABT), and.

From Northern Ontario towards the south, the rock becomes younger. The Canadian Shield in east central Ontario is referred to as the Grenville Province and was formed approximately billion years ago. Much of the topography from Madoc to Bancroft is dominated by the plutonic bodies which were formed at this time.
