AbstractIncreasing energy demand has led to an urgent need for easily accessible geoscience information for less explored areas of North America, such as the northern mainland region of Canada. The heavily explored regions of Mackenzie Delta north of 70 and of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin south of 60 are covered by well-known geological atlas compilations. However, there is no atlas-style source document for the relatively unexplored northern Canadian mainland part of the Western Sedimentary Basin. The Mackenzie Corridor Project of the Northern Resource Development Program (NRD) of The Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) - Earth Sciences Sector (ESS) is intended to address the need for publicly accessible geoscience information across the northern Canadian mainland including the "Mackenzie Corridor" route for the proposed Mackenzie Valley Pipeline. Compilation of a "next generation"-type of digital atlas of this area is a key project activity. The intent is to provide a common geoscience reference for territorial and aboriginal groups, and for resource exploration and pipeline companies engaged in resource development activities. The standard base map is same scale as that for the CSPG Atlas of Western Canada with a common junction along the 60th parallel and extending from 110 longitude westward to the international border with Alaska. Like the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin Atlas, the Northern Mainland Atlas will be organized as a series of time-stratigraphic chapters (e.g. "Upper Cretaceous and Tertiary Stratigraphy") and theme chapters (e.g. "Resources and Infrastructure") and will be published initially as a series of GSC Open File Reports.
