AbstractThe map area is underpinned by three Archean terranes from west to southeast: the Snow Island Suite of 2.6 Ga granite-rhyolite (AS), the Marjorie Hills assemblage of metasedimentary and granitoid gneiss (AMH), and orthogneiss of the Chesterfield block (unit Agn). The AS-AMH boundary is the Wharton Lake fault system, initially a southwest-dipping detachment. The AMH-Agn boundary is the dextral extensional Tulemalu Fault. Brittle reactivations of these faults localized sub-basins of the Baker Lake Group and hosted coeval intrusions of Martell Syenite (minette / ~1.83 Ga Hudson Granite mix). A Hudson Granite plug intrudes the AMH. Early gabbro/anorthosite (~1.77 Ga) of the Kivalliq igneous suite was intruded by Nueltin granite, co-magmatic with bimodal Pitz Formation lavas and the ~1.75 Ga, 015° McRae Lake diabase dyke swarm and compositionally related 075° Thelon River dyke swarm. Cu-Pb veins and replacements formed near mafic centres and Au-Ag-bearing quartz veins near felsic centres.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Tebesjuak Lake map sheet (65O, 1:250,000 scale) is dominated by mafic and felsic volcanic and subvolcanic intrusive rocks of the Wharton Group and Kivalliq igneous suite (ca. 1.75 Ga). These intruded/overlie dominantly quartofeldspathic Archean gneisses, overlain by early Proterozoic supracrustal rocks of the Amer Group (ca. 2.1 Ga) and potassic volcanic rocks of the Baker Lake Group (ca. 1.83 Ga). The sheet contains the type locality of the Pukiq Lake Formation (ca. 2.6 Ga) rhyodacite, extrusive equivalent of the Snow Island Suite. This digital map includes layers of geology, geochronology, mineral showings and structural data. Data sources include the original Open File 728 (LeCheminant, 1981), new data from the Northern Uranium Canada project, Geo-Mapping for Energy and Minerals, and published papers, reports, and theses from various universities and exploration companies.
