Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The High Arctic Large Igneous Province (HALIP) consists of Cretaceous-age volcanic and intrusive rocks exposed circum-Arctic areas. The aim of this report is the public release of whole rock and trace element geochemistry of a selection of volcanic basaltic rocks of the Canadian portion of the HALIP, exposed on Axel Heiberg Island and Ellesmere Island. The data have implications for the Ni-Cu-Platinum Group Element prospectivity of different magmatic events of the HALIP.
