NATMAP Slave Province Project, Quaternary geology component, 1997-2000

Project Description

The Quaternary geology component of the Slave Province National Mapping Program was designed to province a regional framework for geologic interpretation, environmental management and drift prospecting.  As part of this program, surficial geology mapping and till sampling were carried out in 1997 in the Rideout Island-Elu Inlet map areas, Nunavut.  The purpose of the survey was to summarize information on the surficial materials and glacial history relevant to the interpretation of the geochemical data and to establish regional background concentrations of selected trace and minor elements for mineral exploration and environmental baseline studies.  The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 3863.
