Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This Open File report discusses field observations made in the Hopedale region of Labrador, as part of the GEM-2 Hudson-Ungava Minerals program. It summarizes previous work and outlines new field observations made during the summer 2018. It also presents new testable hypotheses for the lithotectonic evolution of the region and outlines analytical techniques that will be applied to rock samples.
