ProgramGEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Rae Province, Chantrey-Thelon
Released2015 01 16
The Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) program is laying the foundation for sustainable economic development in the North. The Program provides modern public geoscience that will set the stage for long-term decision making related to investment in responsible resource development. Geoscience knowledge produced by GEM supports evidence-based exploration for new energy and mineral resources and enables northern communities to make informed decisions about their land, economy and society. Building upon the success of its first five-years, GEM has been renewed until 2020 to continue producing new, publically available, regional-scale geoscience knowledge in Canada's North.
During the summer 2014, GEM's new research program has been launched with 14 field activities that include geological, geochemical and geophysical surveying. These activities have been undertaken in collaboration with provincial and territorial governments, northerners and their institutions, academia and the private sector. GEM will continue to work with these key collaborators as the program advances.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The report describes the results of 2014 fieldwork in the Montresor River area, Nunavut, as part of the GEM-2 Rae project. Aimed at providing a modern geological framework, the work examined relationships among major rock packages last studied in 1982. The results show map patterns and interpreted geological history that differ substantially form previous work, and reveal previously unrecognized potential for polymetallic mineralization.
