Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Tehery-Wager activity, conducted as part of Natural Resources Canada's Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM-2) Rae project, is a collaborative effort between the Geological Survey of Canada and the Canada-Nunavut Geoscience Office, with participants from Canadian universities. The study area comprises all or parts of eight NTS map areas between Chesterfield Inlet and Wager Bay in Nunavut. The main objective of the work is to increase the level of geological knowledge in this under-explored region of the Canadian Shield through bedrock and surficial geology studies, ground-gravity transects, and other thematic studies. The gathered information is being used to better evaluate this frontier region¿s potential for a variety of commodities (e.g., diamonds and other gemstones, base and precious metals, industrial minerals, carving stone, and aggregate), and to assist all stakeholders in making future land-use decisions. This report provides an update on map compilation and laboratory activities conducted following the 2015 and 2016 field seasons in the Tehery-Wager area.
