|Released||2015 12 14|
The Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) program is laying the foundation for sustainable economic development in the North. The Program provides modern
public geoscience that will set the stage for long-term decision making related to investment in responsible resource development. Geoscience knowledge produced by GEM supports evidence-based exploration for new energy and mineral resources and
enables northern communities to make informed decisions about their land, economy and society. Building upon the success of its first five-years, GEM has been renewed until 2020 to continue producing new, publically available, regional-scale
geoscience knowledge in Canada's North.
During the summer 2015, GEM program has successfully carried out 14 research activities that include geological, geochemical and geophysical surveying. These activities have been undertaken in collaboration
with provincial and territorial governments, northerners and their institutions, academia and the private sector. GEM will continue to work with these key collaborators as the program advances.
|Summary||(Plain Language Summary, not published)|
Open File summarises co-operative CNGO-GSC stream sediment and water study activities thus far, primarily the field work component. Resulting data and
information gained from work will facilitate bedrock mapping and evaluate the mineral potential of Sylvia Grinnell Lake map area, Baffin Island, Nunavut.
