AbstractThe Baie Verte Peninsula is located in the northern Appalachians of Newfoundland. It is underlain by the ancestral Laurentian continental margin (Humber zone), the accreted (Taconic Orogeny) Cambrian Baie Verte Oceanic Tract and its Ordovician ophiolite volcano-sedimentary cover. These three marine successions were intruded by late Ordovician to Silurian felsic plutons and associated subaerial volcanic cover emplaced prior to, and during the Salinic Orogeny. There is a long history of mineral exploration and mining on the Baie Verte Peninsula, with the most important commodities being gold, copper and asbestos. To assist in the understanding and exploration of this geologically diverse region, the Baie Verte digital geoscience atlas, a companion output to three previously released Canadian Geoscience Maps, contains GIS datasets including new and compiled bedrock geology (with 1:50,000 pdf maps). These are combined with compiled structural geology, geochronology (U/Pb and 40Ar/39Ar), lithogeochemistry, metallogeny (mines and drilled prospects), reprocessed aeromagnetic survey data (government and industry survey data), a digital elevation model, and base-map data (topography, hydrographic etc.). These GIS data are compatible with a number of GIS platforms, and have also been organized into a project suitable for viewing via ESRI® ArcReader(TM) (links provided).
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Baie Verte Peninsula occurs in the northern Appalachians of Newfoundland and is underlain by the ancestral continental margin of Laurentia, and an accreted (Taconic) Cambrian oceanic tract (ophiolite) and its Ordovician volcano-sedimentary cover. These were intruded by Ordovician to Silurian granitic plutons and coeval volcanic cover during the Salinic Orogeny. There is a long history of mineral exploration and mining on Baie Verte Peninsula including copper-gold mines in ophiolite strata and gold mines in the ophiolite cover. To assist in the understanding and exploration of this geologically diverse region, this digital geoscience atlas, a companion output to previously released geological maps, contains georeferenced datasets including new and compiled bedrock geology, compiled structural geology, geochronology, lithogeochemistry, metallogeny (mines and drilled prospects), reprocessed aeromagnetic survey data (governmental and industrial), a digital elevation model, and base-map data. These data are compatible with a number of GIS platforms, including ESRI's ArcReader free viewer.
