ProgramGEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Rae Province, Chantrey-Thelon
Released2016 12 01
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 (GEM-2) to continue producing new, publically available, regional-scale geoscience knowledge in Canada's North.
During the summer of 2016, GEM-2 successfully carried out 17 research activities that included geological, geochemical and geophysical surveying. Many of these were 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)
The GEM2 Chantrey-Thelon activity had its second season of fieldwork in the Thelon tectonic zone. Over 500 bedrock stations were visited in June-July, 2016 with the objective of characterizing previously inferred crustal domains, testing their lithologic continuity, and examining their boundaries. This work, together with stream sediment and surficial sampling undertaken in 2016, is aimed at stimulating mineral exploration in this understudied area through improved understanding its geologic evolution, crustal structure, and potential exploration targets. This report summarizes the footprint and some highlights of fieldwork in 2016.
