Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
The Hudson Bay and Foxe Basins Project is part of the new Geological Survey of Canada Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) program, which aims to study the hydrocarbon potential of these basins. In Manitoba, the Hudson Bay Basin is represented by the Paleozoic carbonate succession of the Hudson Bay Lowland (HBL) in the northeastern corner of the province. Reevaluation of existing geoscientific data through the lens of modern ideas and theories and application of new scientific technologies are currently underway. In addition, new data will be acquired in areas currently presenting knowledge gaps.
Preliminary results obtained in 2009 from core descriptions of drillholes from Manitoba suggest that hydrothermal dolomitization processes may have occurred. If proven true, through microscopic examination and geochemistry, this discovery can provide key
information on the evolution of the Hudson Bay Basin and its hydrocarbon resource potential.
