AbstractThe Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) is currently working to provide an inventory of surficial earth materials, landforms and geomorphic processes in the Maxhamish Lake map area (NTS 94O) as part of the Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) Program Yukon and Liard Basin Project. This paper focuses on terrain units mapped and classified in the eastern half of NTS 94O: 57% of the map area (12,544 km2). The application of the GEM surficial geology data model presented in this paper provides government agencies, industry and public access to the geoscience information required for long-term investment, targeted exploration, sustainable development and management of natural resources in northern British Columbia.
