Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Only two gaps remain to complete the mapping of bedrock geology of southern Baffin Island: Meta Incognita Peninsula (SE of Iqaluit), and the Clearwater Fiord-Sylvia Grinnell Lake area (N of Iqaluit). During the 2014 summer, helicopter supported, targeted bedrock mapping on Meta Incognita Peninsula defined the extent of prospective Lake Harbour Group sedimentary rocks and associated layered mafic/ultramafic magmatic intrusions. This rock association has an intriguing similarity with the host of the Ni-Cu Raglan deposit in northern Quebec. Integrating the field observations with new laboratory results and an upcoming geophysical survey will assist in constraining potential vectors to mineralization including Ni, Cu, PGEs, Pb and Zn and define the carving stone potential in the vicinity of Iqaluit, Kimmirut and Pangnirtung.
