Abstract(Summary)
This publication summarizes the 2015 field work completed along the northwestern shores of Hudson Bay, mainland Nunavut, as part of the surficial geology component of the GEM 2 Tehery?Wager Activity within the Rae Project. The report outlines field methods and discusses preliminary results regarding the regional surficial geology and Quaternary history, the mapping of surficial materials using remote sensing, and the applications of glacial and stream sediment sampling for mineral exploration. The work was undertaken to provide new geological knowledge on the nature and composition of surficial materials deposited during the retreat of the Laurentide Ice Sheet, successive marine inundation and emergence, and addresses a number of scientific questions relevant to the mineral exploration industry. The findings will support informed decision making for resource exploration and development, and for land use management.
