AbstractThis map and the related geodatabase illustrate the bedrock geology of King William Island and southern Boothia Peninsula. Major features of the area include Archean and Paleoproterozoic granitoid and metasedimentary rocks of Boothia Uplift, unconformably overlain by generally flat-lying Cambrian to Silurian strata of the Arctic Platform.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This map and related digital map files presents our current understanding of the geology of southeastern Victoria Island in the southern Canadian Arctic Islands, western Nunavut. Extensive glacial material in this area means that we have a poor understanding of underlying bedrock as portrayed on this map. Nevertheless, the area has some potential for base metals and kimberlite; the pipe-like rock body that may contain commercial diamond.
