AbstractWith multiple new prospects for diamond exploration emerging in north-central Canada, the compilation, synthesis and release of existing surficial geology maps, reports and data files for the western Churchill Province of the Canadian Shield is paramount. The development of Quaternary geoscience knowledge in this region represents a key component of the western Churchill Metallogeny Project (WCMP) - part of the geological survey of Canada's Northern resources development program. The WCMP is a 3 - year multi-agency, multidisciplinary project that aims to compile and synthesize geoscience knowledge of the western Churchill Province spanning northern Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, southeastern Northwest Territories and central mainland Nunavut. The goal is increased mineral exploration in the north, with its associated benefits to northerners and northern communities.
