AbstractMineral occurrences, or showings, are natural accumulations of one or more useful minerals that may, if present in sufficient quantities under the right physical and economic conditions, provide society with metallic or non-metallic raw materials. They represent locations in the geological substrate that may have been detected through ground observation of promising ore mineral or rocks, through promising geochemical analyses of rock samples for target elements, or through promising responses to geophysical surveys. South Baffin Island contains showings of the base metals nickel, copper, lead and zinc, precious metals including gold and silver, iron, carving stone, and gem-type minerals such as lapis lazuli and sapphire. Indications of radioactive metals, primarily uranium and thorium, were also recognized during geological mapping in the mid-twentieth century.
