|Program||South Rae Province Bedrock/Surficial geology, GEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals|
|Released||2016 12 14|
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 to continue producing new, publically available, regional-scale geoscience
knowledge in Canada's North.
During the summer 2016, GEM program has successfully carried out 17 research activities that include geological, geochemical and geophysical surveying. These activities have been 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 report describes 2016 field activities and scientific highlights of bedrock geological mapping in the south Rae area, NWT (NTS 75G, 75H). The work
resulted in new first-order subdivisions of the bedrock geology, with insight into major crustal boundaries and Precambrian geological history.
