Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Surficial geology Daly Bay North, Nunavut map (NTS 56A-North) identifies surficial materials and associated landforms left by the retreat of the last glaciers to have covered the area about 6000 years ago. The surficial geology is based on aerial photograph interpretation and limited fieldwork. This work was undertaken to provide new geological knowledge and improve our understanding of the distribution, nature and glacial history of surficial materials. This contributes to effective mineral exploration and supports informed decision making for resource development and land use.
