Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Canada-Nunavut Geoscience Office, located in Iqaluit, Nunavut, has conducted field work to map the surficial geology of Hall Peninsula. During summer 2012, NTS (National topographic system) map sheet 25I and 25J was covered. This map presents different types of surficial sediments, deposited from glaciers, rivers, glacial lakes and marine environments. The valleys are filled with fine-grained and sandy deposits, while the plateau is covered with bouldery material with a sandy matrix. This map will be useful to understand the types of material encountered in the building of infrastructure, likes roads and buildings, and for glacial exploration for mineral resources like diamonds and gold.
