Field Trip


The 2022 SGS field trip

The Saskatchewan Geological Society are going to Flin Flon Greenstone Belt and Ordovician Carbonates.

The Paleoproterozoic Early Paleoproterozoic Flin Flon greenstone belt is a world class volcanic-hosted massive sulphide (VMS) district.
The field trip will visit superb exposures of…
• Volcanic and sedimentary rocks with well preserved primary structures and stratigraphic relations
• High strain zones illustrating the transition from Missi Group conglomerates to banded tectonites
• Calc-alkaline early successor arc plutons
• Drill core display from the HudBay 777 VMS deposit
• Ordovician dolostones

Principal Field Trip Leader:
Dr. Michelle DeWolfe, Mount Royal University, Calgary
The SGS is privileged to have Dr. Michelle DeWolfe of Mount Royal University as the principal leader for the 2022 annual field trip. Dr. DeWolfe’s PhD research focused on the hanging wall sequence to the Flin Flon VMS deposits and her primary research interests include: volcanology, in particular in submarine environments, and the volcanic and magmatic controls on the location and formation of volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposits during the evolution of volcanic complexes and associated hydrothermal systems.


Registration is $600 for member, $300 for student members, and includes accomodation, transportation, and lunches.
