|Program||South Rae Province Bedrock/Surficial geology, GEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals|
|Released||2015 02 11|
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 of 2014, GEM's new research program was 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)|
We compile, integrate and interprete geochemical data and surficial landform observations from three reports for the area between the East Arm of Great
Slave Lake and the Thelon River.
