|Program||Hudson/Ungava Core Zone, GEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals|
|Released||2016 12 20|
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 2016, 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 Open File reports on the summary of activities that were derived from a bedrock mapping project in the Schefferville area, northern Quebec and
Labrador. A team of cinq research scientists from NRCan, Université Laval and Cape Breton University made over 120 field stations and collected numerous samples for U-Pb age dating, tracer isotope studies, structural and metamorphic analyses that
will permit the upgrading of geoscience knowledge in the area, with the aim of improving existing tectonic and metallogenic models.
