Abstract(Summary)
Northern Mackenzie Mountains bedrock mapping and stratigraphic studies is a component of "Shield-to-Selwyn geo-transect: studying the evolution of sedimentary rocks of the northern mainland NWT to improve exploration success for petroleum resources and base metal deposits" (Figure 1). This activity will initiate the first regional integrated effort to place Proterozoic to Cenozoic strata of Mackenzie Platform, Selwyn Basin, and adjacent regions into a fully modern tectono-stratigraphic and metallogenic framework, and will better enable industry and Northerners to responsibly find and develop energy and mineral natural resources, maximizing their economic and societal impact.
The present report provides a brief account of field activities in the northern Mackenzie Mountains of the NWT during late July and early August, 2016. Preliminary results are presented that touch upon bedrock geological mapping, structural geology, and stratigraphy.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report summarizes field research activities in the northern Mackenzie Mountains (NTS map areas 106G and 106H) from July and August 2016 in support of the GEM 2 Mackenzie Project, Shield to Selwyn Geo-transect activity. Field activities included bedrock mapping, Proterozoic and Lower Paleozoic stratigraphy, and structural studies.
