Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
March Fault - Flat River Drainage Geochemistry Study, southwest Mackenzie Mountains, NT The field component of a stream sediment and water study was carried out as part of a larger Northwest Territories Geoscience Office (NTGO) stream sediment and water survey in July 2014. The study area is located in the Mackenzie Mountains between Nahanni National Park Reserve and the Yukon border. In total, 190 sites were visited and sampled for stream sediment and water. At the time of publication, all samples have been submitted for sample processing and analyses. A complete dataset is expected in 2015. Mineral potential for several deposit types within the study area is quite high, as the area already contains one operating mine (Cantung) and a deposit currently undergoing development (Howard's Pass). The aim of this study is to better understand the role of the March Fault as a potential fluid conduit in mineralising events.
