Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Geomapping for Energy and Minerals program provides new and modern geological knowledge of remote regions of Canada's north. This report presents data that document the age and geological history of rocks from a transect across the southern Rae geological province in the Northwest Territories (parts of NTS sheets 65 and 75). The new age data, combined with regional airborne geophysical data is used to subdivide the region into distinct geological domains, each with a unique geological history. The new knowledge is useful to evaluate geological correlation over a broader region, including areas in northern Saskatchewan and Alberta, and contributes to an improved understanding of the mineral potential of the area.
