AbstractThis map and the related geodatabase illustrate the bedrock geology of eastern Devon Island, Coburg Island, and southern Ellesmere Island. Major features of the area include: high-grade Neoarchean and Paleoproterozoic metasedimentary and granitoid rocks of the (?)Rae craton and Inglefield Orogen, unconformable and mostly flat-lying Cambrian to Lower Devonian platformal strata, and (on Ellesmere Island) the Middle and Upper Devonian foreland clastic wedge associated with the Ellesmerian Orogen.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
