Abstract(Summary)
This open file reports on a ground geophysical survey conducted on Southampton Island in the summer of 2018. The potential of ground geophysics to map the presence of porous intervals in the shallow sub-surface has been previously demonstrated in the Churchill area during GEM-1. This new survey will help with the spatial characterization of these rock layers, which are potential hydrocarbon reservoirs on Southampton Island. The area of interest is an approximately 100 km2 region near Cape Donovan, roughly 75 km north of Coral Harbour.
