Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report contains a geological summary, geochemistry data, and preliminary interpretation of ca. 2.6 Ga intrusive and extrusive rocks of the pan-Rae Province Snow Island Suite. Field and laboratory results were collected as part of the GEM-U project in the central Rae Province. In this area, extensive outcrops of both mafic intrusions and of rhyolite through basaltic lavas (Pukiq Lake Formation) are present, which have been rarely recorded in other areas.
