AbstractSurficial geology maps provide important geoscience information for geological reconstructions, mineral exploration and development, and land use planning. In this study, remote predictive mapping was used to derive a predictive surficial geology map for Marian River NTS 85N, which straddles the Slave, the Bear-Slave and the Interior Platform geological provinces. The predictive map was generated using radiometrically balanced LANDSAT 7 imagery (collected in 2001) and knowledge from airphoto interpretations, fire history, elevation models, field observations and legacy datasets. This Open File contains graphical and digital geo-referenced versions of the predictive maps. A printable version of the predictive surficial geology map is provided in pdf format (map scale 1:125 000).
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Surficial geology maps provide important geoscience information required for geological reconstructions, mineral exploration and development, and land use planning in northern Canada. In this study, remote predictive mapping was used to derive predictive surficial geology map for Marian River NTS 85N, located within the Slave Geological Province. The predictive maps were generated using radiometrically balanced LANDSAT 7 imagery and knowledge gained from airphoto interpretations, fire history, elevation models, field observations and legacy datasets. This Open File contains graphical and digital georeferenced versions of the predictive maps. A printable version of the predictive surficial geology map is provided in pdf format (map scale 1:125 000).
