AbstractThe contents of this CD represent the culmination of a one-year geoscience compilation for the North Baffin and Northern Melville Peninsula region in the new Nunavut territory. The project was co-sponsored by the Geological Survey of Canada, Qikiqtaaluk Corporation, Indian and Northern Affairs Canada and the Government of Northwest. The purpose of this project is to make information about the rocks and soils of the area easier to obtain, to understand, and to use by providing geoscience information to northern communities and the general public. Potential applications include land-use planning and management, education and mineral exploration.
This geoscience knowledge base is a seamless, multi-thematic integrated data set. Geoscience data layers include 1:500 000-scale bedrock geology, surficial geology, mineral occurrences and metallogenic domains, geophysical and geochronological data and Precambrian fossil localities. Underlying this information is a seamless topographic base with lakes, drainage, coastlines and elevation data. Hard copy maps of bedrock geology (GSC Open File 3633, 1:500 000), surficial geology (GSC Open File 3634, 1:500 000) and metallogenic domains with mineral occurrences (GSC Open File 3635, 1:1 000 000) have been derived from this knowledge base.
