Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This Slave surficial geology open file presents a report and 13 detailed maps produced by industry to aid in mineral exploration. The report/maps illustrate practical, conceptual prospecting models that will aid exploration in the Slave province and adjacent terrain north of sixty. Reliable geological information allows industry to invest in areas with the best potential for success in exploring for mineral resources. This Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) initiative of the Geological Survey of Canada provides industry with modern geological maps and related geological models to improve prospecting opportunities. The maps were produced under contract to Rampton Resource Group Inc. (Terrain Analysis) to frame sampling and property-scale exploration. Mapping was carried out at a scale, 1:25,000 to 1:50,000 and reveals more detailed geological relationships than previous mapping at 1:125,000 or 1:250,000 scales. Mapped features and terrain elements were used to design sampling grids and to identify sample media and locations to improve mineral tracing in glaciated terrain.
