ProgramGEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals GEM Synthesis
Released2022 12 20; 2023 09 14
AbstractThe Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) program (2008-2020) of the Geological Survey of Canada made important contributions to the understanding of northern sedimentary basins in the Canadian Arctic Islands, Hudson Bay, and the mainland Northwest Territories. The goal of the program was to advance the geological understanding of the Canadian north, which the exploration industry and northern communities could then use for decision-making related to exploration and development. The most important advances are outlined in the papers in this volume and summarized in this introductory paper. In each area, improvements in the stratigraphic understanding gained through fieldwork help researchers decipher paleoenvironments, thickness variations, timing of nondeposition, and timing of erosion. These in turn allow for improved understanding of the tectonic history of each area. GEM projects produced a vast array of products, from geological and geophysical maps and geochemical data to peer-reviewed scientific papers. Reference to the most important of these products is made in the individual papers.
