Meteorite impact leaves rare rocks and evidence of extreme heat at remote lake in Quebec
Western planetary geologists team with NASA and Swiss crystallographer to make discovery

For more than a decade, Western University planetary geologist Gordon “Oz” Osinski has led expeditions to Kamestastin Lake in Labrador. The environment is a perfect training ground because the properties and rock formations – created by the violent impact (and extreme heat) of an asteroid 36 million years ago – uniquely mimic the surface on the Moon.

Osinski, Neeraja Chinchalkar, the research technician at Western’s Earth and Planetary Materials Analysis (EPMA) Laboratory, and their collaborators have now discovered new evidence that another meteorite impact once caused equally extreme (and respectively rare) high temperatures, exceeding 2,370 °C (4,172 °F), at another remote impact structure in northern Quebec.
