Abstract(Summary)
This publication summarizes the 2016 field work completed south of Wager Bay, mainland Nunavut, as part of the surficial component of the GEM-2 Tehery-Wager Activity within the Rae Project area (Fig. 1). The report outlines field methods and field observations regarding the regional surficial geology and glacial history, the detailed mapping of the post-glacial marine limit, and the targeted sampling of glacial and stream sediments. The 2016 field work is a continuation of the work undertaken in 2015 to provide new geological knowledge on the nature and composition of surficial materials deposited during the last glaciation and following ice retreat, post?glacial marine inundation and emergence. The findings will support informed decision making for resource exploration and development, and for land use management.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This publication summarizes the 2016 field work completed along the northwestern shores of Hudson Bay, mainland Nunavut, as part of the GEM-2 Tehery-Wager activity surficial component of the Rae Project. The report outlines field methods and discusses preliminary results regarding the regional surficial geology and glacial history, the detailed mapping of the post-glacial marine limit, the sampling of glacial and stream sediments, and the mapping of surficial materials using remote sensing. The work was undertaken to provide new geological knowledge on the nature and composition of surficial materials deposited during the retreat of the Laurentide Ice Sheet and successive marine inundation and emergence. The findings will support informed decision making for resource exploration and development, and for land use management.
