The Flin Flon-Glennie Complex or Flin Flon Greenstone Belt, extends over a km interval on the southern margin of the Trans-Hudson orogen in northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan, hosts clusters of volcanic hosted massive sulphide (VHMS) copper-zinc-gold deposits surrounding Flin Flon, Snow Lake - km to the east of Flin Flon, Hanson Lake - 60 km west of Flin Flon and Sherridon. Examples are the deposits at Kidd Creek, Ontario, Flin Flon on the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border, Britannia on Howe Sound, and Myra Falls (within Strathcona Park) on Vancouver Island. VMS deposits are formed from the water discharged at high temperature (° to °C) at ocean-floor hydrothermal vents, primarily in areas of subduction-zone.

Magmatic sulphide deposits cover a wide range of morphologies, ages and mineralisation styles. The most common types are: Basal deposits (sulphur saturation of mafic magma causes dense cobalt and nickel sulphides to be concentrated in basal sections of magma chambers). objective of developing an alternative process for recovering cobalt and copper from complex sulfide concentrates. Processes currently used de­ pend largely upon precipitation techniques to remove impurities and re­ cover cobalt from sulfate liquors prepared by oxidative pressure leaching of the sulfide concentrates. The Bureau conducted. stratiform sulphide deposits of sedimentary affiliation. 2). stratiform sulphide deposits of sedimentary affiliation. volcanogenic massive sulphide (vms) deposits of the. Analyses of pyrite, chalcopyrite and magnetite from the volcanic-hosted Big Cadia stratabound iron-copper deposit in Central Western New South Wales show considerable variation in the minor elements Mn, Ba, Ag, Pb, Zn, Cd, Se, Co and Ni. The preferential concentration of Co and Cd in pyrite, Zn and Ag in chalcopyrite and Mn in magnetite can be attributed to variations in activities of the ions.

Nickel-copper-platinum-group element magmatic sulphide deposits and showings have been documented in the Superior craton cover units of the Cape Smith belt of .

The Paleoproterozic unit occurs at the base of the Hidden formation, overlying greater than 90 million tons of volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits at Flin Flon, Manitoba, Canada. Cobalt sulfide is generated during the concentration and extraction of cobalt from mineral ores(2) which may result in its release to the environment through various waste streams(SRC).
