Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This study evaluated the mineral and hydrocarbon potential for an area of approximately 33,500 square kilometres situated in the vicinity of the East Arm of Great Slave Lake, NT which has been proposed as a location for a national park. The potential for thirteen mineral deposit types were assessed in this large geologically complex area. Seven of these deposit types were assessed as having moderate-high and/or high potenital within the area of interest for the proposed park (Lode Gold, Kimberlite-hosted Diamonds, Volcanogenic Massive Sulphides - copper, lead and zinc, Vein Uranium, Vein Copper, Sedimentary exhalative copper,Lead and zinc and Iron Oxide Copper Gold). There is no potential for hydrocarbons within the area of interest. Work for this assessment was conducted as part of the Mineral and Energy Resource Assessment (MERA) process.
