ProgramHudson/Ungava Core Zone, GEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals
Released2015 12 07
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 of 2015, the GEM program successfully carried out 17 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)
This publication reports on the scope of bedrock mapping activities undertaken in the Precambrian rocks of the Kuujjuaq area in northern Québec during the summer 2015. The results of this multi-disciplinary Federal-Provincial-Academia collaborative project, part of the Geo-Mapping for Energy and Minerals Program, will enable a better understanding of the geological evolution of the are and a better assessment of its potential for hosting mineral deposits.
