ProgramGEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Western Cordillera Project Management
Released2016 12 01
AbstractThe 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. On-going GEM-Cordillera project is focused on improving the regional stratigraphy and tectonic models in northern British Columbia and Yukon and producing publically available, regional-scale geoscience knowledge in Canada's North.
The following report presents a compilation of the whole-rock geochemical data collected in the course of regional mapping, re-analysis of archival samples and unpublished archival analyses within the GEM-Cordillera project footprint. The geochemical data presented herein provide assistance in the regional correlation of units, as well as for determination of the tectonic setting of Phanerozoic volcanic and plutonic rocks. The report is intended to provide users with access to essential geochemical data and analytical background information.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Testing of Geomapping for Energy and Minerals program Cordillera project hypotheses requires a data-driven approach to improve understanding of the magma evolution history and implications for formation of mineral deposits. This open file releases background legacy and recently collected geochemical data that help to characterize magmatic rocks and facilitate regional correlations and understanding of the causes of magma genesis.
