Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This open file presents results from the ¿Coppermine River Transect¿ campaign, which consisted of field activities conducted in July and August 2017 in western Nunavut as part of the second phase of the Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM-2) program. Research activities related to this report were led by the Geological Survey of Canada, Ottawa in collaboration with Laurentian University of Sudbury, ON. This report provides a detailed sedimentologic and stratigraphic description and interpretation of the Mesoproterozoic Husky Creek Formation in the Coppermine Homocline, which is exposed along the Coppermine River and its associated tributaries, southwest of the hamlet of Kugluktuk, Nunavut.
