. The Baie Verte Peninsula is a geologically complex area on the northwest coast of Newfoundland. The region is composed of multiple geological domains and has undergone extensive tectonic activity, uplift, and deformation, producing multiple unconformity surfaces. In addition, multiple phases of intrusion, some with volcanic cover sequences, add to the complexity of the geological model. The peninsula is home to many communities, the largest is Baie Verte where it gets its name. The Rambler area, of the Baie Verte Peninsula, has a long history of mineral exploration dating back to 1903 when local prospector Enos England first discovered the ‘England Vein’. The peninsula also contains valuable volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits, some of which have elevated gold concentrations, up to several grams per tonne locally.
