|Program||Western Arctic, High Arctic LIP, GEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals|
|Released||2016 01 20|
The Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) program1 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, the GEM program has 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.
