The Canadian shield is the exposed part of the North American craton, one section of the earth's floating crust. Shaped somewhat like a horseshoe, or .

Schematic correlation of MRS volcanic rocks in western and eastern Lake Superior from Nicholson et al. banded rhyolites occur as intrusive and possibly extrusive units within the MPF. Felsic dykes, porphyries, and breccias also intrude the Archean rocks to the east, and are considered to be related to the felsic volcanic and intrusive rocks.   Instead, they show similarities to ancient rocks found in Canada, in the exposed section of the continental crust called the Canadian Shield. This unexpected finding, according to researchers at Curtin University, Monash University and the Geological Survey of Queensland in Australia, reveals something about the composition of the ancient.

The Canadian Shield is composed of granite and the world’s greatest area of exposed Precambrian rock (both igneous and metamorphic). Severe glaciation during formation scraped the rocks clean leaving only a thin layer of soil lying on the Precambrian bedrock. Other articles where Shield volcano is discussed: volcano: Shield volcanoes: Structures of this type are large, dome-shaped mountains built of lava flows. Their name derives from their similarity in shape to a warrior’s shield lying face up. Shield volcanoes are usually composed of basalt. Small shield volcanoes may form rapidly from almost continuous.

Get this from a library. Sulphur in Archean volcanic rocks in the Canadian Shield. [E M Cameron]. The Canadian Shield, also called the Laurentian Plateau, or Bouclier canadien (French), is a large area of exposed Precambrian igneous and high-grade metamorphic rocks (geological shield) that forms the ancient geological core of the North American continent (the North American Craton or Laurentia).Composed of igneous rock resulting from its long volcanic history, the area is Sub-units: Laurentian Upland, Kazan.

The Canadian Shield was formed by a combination of plate tectonics, volcanic eruptions, sedimentary deposits and erosion. It was the first part of North America to be permanently above sea level, and the rest of the North American continent formed around it. The Canadian Shield's oldest rocks formed two billion years ago.

The Abitibi Volcanic Belt in eastern Superior Province of the Canadian Shield is the largest continuous greenstone belt in the world and is a key example of late Archean crust.

The Karelia and Belomorian Provinces include a large number of generally NNW-trending greenstone belts, whose tectonic settings of origin may include an oceanic plateau, island arc and/or continental rift.

The ages of volcanic rocks in these greenstone belts vary from to by: Churchill Province Churchill Province embraces nearly half the Canadian Shield. It is composed of several geosynclinal belts of Aphebian rocks that were deformed in the Hudsonian Orogeny, large tracts of Archean rocks that were redeformed, remetamorphosed and remobilized during the orogeny, and remnants of post-orogenic Helikian cover : R.J.W.

Douglas. Abstract. At least 12 granulite occurrences, ranging in size from a few 10’s tokm2, are exposed in the Archean Superior Province. Primary lithotectonic subdivision of the Superior Province into linear volcano-plutonic and metasedimentary gneiss belts has led to interpretation of these components as magmatic arcs and accretionary prisms respectively, assembled in the Cited by: Volcanic Mountains- a mountain created by breaks in the Earths crust.

Tundra- vast, treeless plain in the Arctic region. Metamorphic Rocks- a transformation of the existing rocks; Landscape Facts- It is also called the Laurentian Plateau. The Canadian Shield stretches into the USA, and most of Greenland. It is covered in metamorphic rocks.

The Canadian Shield is a landform region that covers more than half of Canada, located in northeast Alberta, northern Saskatchewan, northern Manitoba, southern Northwest Territories, Ontario, Quebec, and Newfoundland. Three major bodies of water in this region are Lake Athabasca, Reindeer Lake, and part of Lake Superior.

Rocks and minerals. A jumble of ceaselessly recycled igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks makes up the earth’s surface. Igneous rock (granite, gneiss) forms when molten rock cools. The Canadian Shield’s igneous base abounds in copper, gold, iron, and nickel.
