Abstract

The north-central US Midcontinent is underlain by a considerable thickness of sedimentary rocks, mostly Paleozoic, which lie upon a heterogeneous basement of Precambrian granitoid and metamorphic rocks. This article describes a representative sample of Midcontinent geology and explains why the authors believe this region is a 'new frontier' for mineral exploration and discovery. -Authors
