Abstract [en]

This paper is written as a Bachelor of Honours thesis at Uppsala University, supported by Northland Exploration AB. It comprises a petrological description of lithologies from Muotkamaa area in the southern part of Käymäjärvi, Norrbotten county, Northern Sweden. The thesis is based on geological mapping and sampling done by the author during the field season 2010.

Three main groups of lithologies have been identified in the area; 1: Mafic‐intermediate volcanics in the east‐southeast, 2: Dolomitic marble in the west and 3: Skarn‐ and quartzite‐banded iron formation in the northern part. Cu‐rich mineralization is mainly associated with the volcanics and skarn‐rich iron formation, with the highest copper values in the volcanics near Lombolojoki‐river. Both primary and secondary copper minerals, like chalcopyrite, bornite, digenite, covellite and malachite are abundant.

In general, low‐grade metamorphism and alteration is observed in all samples, with the metamorphic grade appearing to vary between greenschist and amphibolite facies. Sericitization and skarn alteration dominate. Supergene alteration is abundant in veins and in pervasively weathered outcrops, resulting in very well developed oxidation textures.
