AbstractThe seismic shothole drillers' log database provides baseline, near-surface (3-90 m; average 18.6 m) lithostratigraphic geoscience information on surficial, bedrock, hydro-, and permafrost geology. The revised and updated version 3 database contains 343,989 individual augered, or air-rotary drilled seismic shothole drillers' log records collected from 1952 to present. Originally published in 2007 as Open File 5465 (75,783 records) then updated in 2010 as Open File 6049 (275,871 records), the present database represents the sum total of all available archival holdings from Industry. Compiled in a Microsoft Access database, and graphically rendered in a GIS, the shothole data span the length and breadth of the Mackenzie corridor, Mackenzie Delta, and adjoining petroleum exploration regions of continental Northwest Territories and northern Yukon. The data, and numerous derivative thematic GIS and models stemming from this publication, provide an unparalleled and unique source of information that will benefit a wide variety of users (e.g., aboriginal organizations, communities, government, industry, land and water boards, regulators, and scientists), and applications (e.g., environmental assessments, infrastructure development, land use planning, resource management, and seismic exploration).
