ProgramWestern Arctic, High Arctic LIP, GEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals
Released2015 12 02
The Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) program provides public geoscience that will set the stage for long-term decision making related to investment in resource development. GEM supports exploration for energy and mineral resources through improved mapping and modern geoscience information in areas of resource potential, and enables northern communities and regulators to make informed decisions about their land and economy. Building upon the success of its first five years, GEM was renewed until 2020 to continue producing publically available, regional-scale geoscience knowledge in Canada's North.
During the summer 2014, GEM's research program launched 14 field activities that include geological, geochemical and geophysical surveying (Figure 1). These activities have been undertaken in collaboration with provincial and territorial governments, northerners and their institutions, academia and the private sector.
