ProgramGEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Mackenzie Corridor, Shield-to-Selwyn geo-transect, Mackenzie-Selwyn sub-activity
Released2017 10 31
Northern Mackenzie Mountains bedrock mapping and stratigraphic studies are a component of the Mackenzie-Selwyn geo-transect: studying the evolution of sedimentary rocks of the northern mainland NWT to improve exploration success for petroleum resources and base metal deposits (Figure 1). This activity will initiate the first regional integrated effort to place Proterozoic to Cenozoic strata of Mackenzie Platform, Selwyn Basin, and adjacent regions into a modern tectono-stratigraphic and metallogenic framework, and will better enable industry and Northerners to responsibly find and develop energy and mineral natural resources, maximizing their economic and societal impact.
The present report provides an account of field activities in the Bonnet Plume Lake map area (NTS 106B) of the Mackenzie Mountains, NWT, during July and early August, 2017. Preliminary results presented in this report touch upon bedrock geological mapping, stratigraphy, structural geology, and mineral deposits.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This progress report gives an account of geological mapping conducted in the Mackenzie Mountains during the summer of 2017. Subjects discussed include map relationships, stratigraphy, structural geology, and minerals geology.
