ProgramGEM2: Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals GEM Synthesis
Released2022 12 20; 2023 09 14
AbstractThe Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals program addressed four questions related to the lower Paleozoic succession of the Arctic Islands that were identified as key deficiencies in regional geological knowledge: 1) geochemical and geological data were not fully digital or available; 2) there were gaps in information on petroleum systems; 3) there was no geological map for the northwestern part of Victoria Island; and 4) the geological history of the Pearya composite terrane on northern Ellesmere Island was unclear. These gaps were addressed by 1) the publication of 17 open files that make geological and geochemical data sets publicly available; 2) studies on source rock, thermal maturity, and oil-source correlation; 3) the production of a geological map for northwestern Victoria Island; and 4) a series of geological, geochemical, and geochronological studies that support a geological model in which the southeastern structural slice of Pearya was a fragment of ancient North America that rifted and returned, rather than a far-travelled continental fragment.
