Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This open file is derived from a presentation made to the Yellowknife Open House 2013. The slides show the first results from South Rae activity of the Geomapping Frontiers project, which was undertaken in the Precambrian Shield of southeastern Northwest Territories. New magnetic data, along with ages of rock samples and observations made during a 10 day field reconnaissance are used to outline a new model of the Precambrian Shield in the study area. The results of a newly reanalyzed geochemical survey are also presented and discussed. The results show potential for hitherto unrecognized occurrences of gold and base metals in the study area.
