Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This publication includes the complete datasets related to the collection of field observations and composition of glacial sediment samples in the western part of the Canadian Shield. The work was undertaken to help trace mineralized rocks of iron oxide copper-gold (IOCG) deposits in the unconsolidated glacial sediments left during the last glaciation in the Great Bear Lake area. This work will help provide the geoscience knowledge required to develop effective mineral exploration methods in formerly glaciated terrain. The work is part a graduate research project from McGill University, conducted under the IOCG Great Bear Project at the Geological Survey of Canada, as part of Natural Resources Canada¿s Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) Program.
