Abstract(Summary)
Colville Hills bedrock mapping and stratigraphic studies is a component of the Shield to Selwyn geo-transect: studying the evolution of sedimentary rocks of the northern mainland NWT to improve exploration success for petroleum resources and base metal deposits (Figure 1). This activity will initiate the first regional integrated effort to place Proterozoic to Cenozoic strata of Mackenzie Platform, Selwyn Basin, and adjacent regions into a fully modern tectono-stratigraphic and metallogenic framework, and will better enable industry and Northerners to responsibly find and develop energy and mineral natural resources, maximizing their economic and societal impact.
The present report provides a brief account of field activities in the Colville Hills region of the NWT during late July and early August, 2015. Preliminary results are presented that touch upon bedrock geological mapping, structural geology, stratigraphy (with particular focus on Cambrian-Ordovician, Ordovician-Silurian, and Cretaceous units), and oil seeps.
