|Abstract||This map and the related geodatabase illustrate the bedrock geology of central and eastern Prince of Wales Island, Somerset Island, and northern Boothia Peninsula. Major features of the area include
Archean and Paleoproterozoic granitoid and metasedimentary rocks of Boothia Uplift overlain unconformably by Paleoproterozoic and Mesoproterozoic sediments, which are, in turn, unconformably overlain by Cambrian to Devonian strata of Arctic Platform.
The higher Silurian and Lower Devonian interval provides a multiphase depositional record of Boothia Uplift. Youngest events are recorded by Cretaceous kimberlite diatremes and outliers of Paleogene strata.|
|Summary||(Plain Language Summary, not published)|
This map and the accompanying spatial files provide users with a flexible means of accessing the geology of the Canadian Arctic Islands. The present
publication is one of fifteen collectively covering all of the Canadian Arctic Islands north and west of Baffin Island.
