AbstractThis publication's purpose is to provide information on the location and thickness of potential granular aggregate resources (gravel and sand) and bedrock outcrop/subcrop localities which may host suitable quarry material in the vicinity of the Ka'a'gee Tu Candidate Protected Area, southern Northwest Territories. Newly acquired archival seismic shothole drillers-log data from Shell Canada, ConocoPhillips Canada, and Paramount Resources, are used to update previous reconstructions of potential granular aggregate
deposits (Open File 6058) and bedrock outcrop/subcrop occurrences (Open File 6410). A total of 713 potential granular aggregate deposits and 4264 bedrock outcrop/subcrop occurrences have been added to the thematic GIS which is presented here. Application of this information is considered beneficial to all manner of regional, community, and resource infrastructure development, and may be incorporated into decision making by those planning the geographical extents and limitations to development in the proposed Ka'a'gee Tu Candidate Protected Area.
