Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Publication provides original, baseline stratigraphic, lithological, and geochemical information from Banks Island, derived from 13 107 seismic shothole drillers' logs, and 1317 sediment samples that had been collected in 1975 when the shotholes were being drilled, and analyzed at the GSC Calgary office. These records were found within a previously unknown paper file card archive at the GSC-Calgary office, and supplemented with the recovery of all available archival shothole drillers' log records from Industry. Information is presented in a database, GIS, and summary report and examines various thematic and lithological materials and analyses. The information presented benefits the understanding of drift (glacial) materials and bedrock across Banks Island as it applies to resolving potential kimberlite indicator mineral dispersal trains, and will be an important contribution to the GEM-2 Western Arctic - Banks Island project, focussing field activities, and identifying sites and deposits requiring field inspection, sample collection, and study.
