AbstractAn aeromagnetic survey of theMcKeand River area on southern Baffin Island, Nunavut began in early August 2014. The survey will collect 74 818 line-km of data and is scheduled to be completed in November 2014. The new aeromagnetic data will help fill a gap in an area lacking any aeromagnetic coverage and having few published bedrock geologicalmaps.Aeromagnetic surveys measure magnetic properties of underlying bedrock using a sensor in a fixed-wing aircraft or helicopter, and are one of the tools used in geological mapping. This new survey is designed to support new targeted geoscience projects and bedrock geologymapping to be undertaken by the Canada-Nunavut Geoscience Office (CNGO) and the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) in the summer of 2015. These initiatives will be carried out as part of a two-year activity within the GEM-Baffin project area entitled 'Completing the regional bedrock mapping of the southern half of Baffin Island'.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
An aeromagnetic survey flown over the McKeand River area on southern Baffin Island, Nunavut, began in early August, 2014. The survey is comprised of 74,818 line km of surveying and is scheduled to be completed by November, 2014. The survey will provide aeromagnetic data over an area with no existing aeromagnetic coverage and a paucity of published bedrock geological maps. Aeromagnetic surveys measure magnetic properties of underlying bedrock and are one of the tools used in geological mapping. The survey was designed to support new targeted geoscience projects and bedrock geology mapping to be undertaken by the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) and the Canada-Nunavut Geoscience Office (CNGO) in the summer of 2015 as part of the GEM-Baffin project area, two-year activity entitled 'Completing the regional bedrock mapping of the southern half of Baffin Island'.
