Regional bedrock mapping of northern Baffin Island (Steensby Inlet and Barnes Ice Cap areas), Nunavut : GEM-2 Baffin project, report of activities 2018 / D.R. Skipton, B.M. Saumur, and M.R. St-Onge.: M183-2/8484E-PDF

"This is a progress report on the fieldwork, map compilation and geoscience research undertaken in the GEM-2 North Baffin bedrock mapping activity during late 2016 to 2018, as part of the GEM-2 Baffin Project. Geological maps inform industry, government, and community stakeholders of potential economic resources. During the past two decades, the Precambrian and Phanerozoic bedrock geology has been mapped in extensive areas of Nunavut. Updated regional bedrock map coverage for Baffin Island south of latitude 70°N was completed in 2016 (St-Onge et al., 2016). The activity described herein represents the first steps towards an updated geological framework of Baffin Island north of 70°N, with the goal of producing maps at a scale and resolution commensurate with those produced for the southern portion of the island"--Project summary, page 3.
