AbstractThis preliminary Open File geological map presents results of bedrock mapping undertaken in the region during 1985,1991,1992, and 1994 field seasons. The objectives of the mapping were to upgrade the reconnaissance database, and to address some of the outstanding structural, metamorphic, and metallogenic problems in the region, in order to provide a framework for regional correlation and tectonic synthesis of rock units of this part of the Churchill Structural Province. Detailed accounts of bedrock geology covering the region were published in numerous GSC publications. The reader is referred to the references cited here for a comprehensive overview of the geology of the region.
