AbstractAs a contribution to the Mackenzie Project of the Geological Survey of Canada's Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Program, bedrock mapping and stratigraphic studies spanning the Colville Hills region to the northeastern margin of the Selwyn basin have been underway since 2015. Our work is improving existing geological maps of the area, clarifying the stratigraphic history of the region with a focus on Neoproterozoic to Silurian units, and refining the structural relationships across the Mackenzie Platform from the plains deep into the deformed belt. This transect includes sedimentary strata hosting petroleum systems in the Colville Hills, Mackenzie Plain, and Peel Plain & Plateau, as well as mineral systems in the northern Mackenzie Mountains. Therefore, an improved understanding of the tectono-stratigraphic history is expected to provide new insights into these systems.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This abstract describes bedrock mapping and stratigraphic research conducted in the Colville Hills and northern Mackenzie Mountains from 2015 to 2017, in the Northwest Territories.
