ProgramGEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Rae Province, Tehery-Wager Bay
Released2016 04 01
The Tehery-Wager activity, conducted as part of the second phase of Natural Resources Canada's Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM-2) Rae project, is a collaborative effort between the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) and the Canada-Nunavut Geoscience Office (CNGO), with participants from Canadian universities. The study area comprises all or parts of eight National Topographic System (NTS) map areas between Chesterfield Inlet and Wager Bay in Nunavut. The main objective of the work is to increase the level of geological knowledge in this poorly known and under-explored region of the Canadian Shield through targeted bedrock geology mapping, surficial geology studies, surface and stream sediment sampling, ground-gravity transects, and other thematic studies. The gathered information will be used to better evaluate this frontier region's potential for a variety of commodities, including diamonds and other gemstones, base and precious metals, industrial minerals, carving stone, and aggregate, and to assist all stakeholders, including northerners, in making future land-use decisions. This summarizes results from the 2015 bedrock mapping in the western and northern parts of the study area that allow refinement of the spatial distribution of major rock units and structures, documentation of the geological histories in relative time, and a preliminary evaluation of the region's economic potential.
