Abstract(Summary)
This open file presents an overview of pre-survey studies and new ground geophysical data collected in July of 2017 to help determine the origin of the Kaskattama Highlands in northern Manitoba. The region's local topography and possible Cretaceous or Tertiary stratigraphy collected within drill core conflict with the intracratonic basin model for the region used currently as the basis for assessing the hydrocarbon prospectivity of the region. The new data will help constrain possible geological models for the area.
