Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This publication reports the results of surficial geology field observations and composition of glacial sediment samples collected in 2012 along a 500-km long transect across three major geologic domains in central mainland Nunavut. The work was undertaken to provide new geological knowledge of the composition of surficial materials left by the retreat of the last glaciers. It will help evaluate resource potential of some of the most remote and poorly understood regions of Canada¿s north. This work was conducted under the Geo-Mapping Frontiers¿ Chantrey project at the Geological Survey of Canada, as part of Natural Resources Canada¿s Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) Program.
