ProgramHudson/Ungava, Northeastern Quebec-Labrador, surficial geology, GEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals
AbstractBedrock mapping and mineral resource exploration in northern Quebec and Labrador is challenging because the bedrock geology is poorly documented and, in parts, bedrock is covered by glacial sediments deposited by a complex sequence of glacial flow related to a migrating ice divide. For significant parts of northern Quebec and Labrador, there are no surficial geology maps, till geochemical data or indicator mineral knowledge. This lack of information results in poorly understood drift thickness, glacial history and dispersal mechanisms and ultimately hinders mineral exploration.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Oral presentation (and published abstract) for invited speech to present results and ongoing research in the GEM2 Hudson-Ungava Core Zone Surficial Activity. Results will be presented from all sub-activities which include: surficial mapping, lake sediment geochemistry, ice flow chronology, drift prospecting research and radiometric survey research.
