Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This Open File consists of a Google Earth Fly-Through that simulates a bird's-eye view geological field trip across the Minto Inlier of Victoria Island, NT. The virtual geological field trip includes 18 stops, illustrating unique geological discoveries that were made during field work carried out between 2009 and 2011 for the GEM-Minerals Victoria Island Project. The Fly-Through is intended as an educational tool and was produced to thank the residents of the hamlet of Ulukhaktok and project participants for their contribution to, and support of the field work.
