Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This publication describes bedrock mapping and sampling activities carried out by the authors on Axel Heiberg Island and Ellesmere Island in July 2016. The fieldwork objective is to determine the Ni-Cu-PGE potential of the HALIP exposed in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Mapping and sampling activities completed in 2016 were focused on mafic sills and dykes exposed within subvolcanic intrusive complexes on western and northern Axel Heiberg Island, Nunavut.
