AbstractA six day field reconnaissance was completed in summer of 2014 to obtain an overview of the South Rae study area. The goal of this reconnaissance was to ascertain the optimum surficial and bedrock mapping strategies and assess logistics for 2015 and later field seasons. A general perspective of the region's Quaternary geology, the amount of bedrock exposure, access to key mapping areas and possible camp locations for the area was achieved. Air-photo interpretation of the surficial geology of 75B map sheet is underway.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
A reconnaissance field visit to the southern Rae Province, NWT was completed during the summer of 2014 as part of the Geologic and Metallogenic Framework of the South Rae Craton Activity, a component of the Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Phase 2 (GEM-2) Rae Project. The goal of this reconnaissance was to ascertain the optimum surficial and bedrock mapping strategies and assess logistics for 2015 and later field seasons. A general perspective of the region's Quaternary geology, the amount of bedrock exposure, access to key mapping areas and possible camp locations for the area was achieved.
