Geochemical data of Yukon-Tanana and Slide Mountain terranes and their successor rocks in Yukon and northern British Columbia / J.J. Ryan, A. Zagorevski, and S.J. Piercey.: M183-2/8500E-PDF
"The Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) program is laying the foundation for sustainable economic development in the North. The Program provides modern public geoscience that will set the stage for long-term decision making related to responsible land-use and resource development. Geoscience knowledge produced by GEM supports evidence-based exploration for new energy and mineral resources and enables northern communities to make informed decisions about their land, economy and society. The ongoing GEM-Cordillera project will be completed in 2020, and is focused on improving the regional stratigraphy and tectonic models in Yukon and northern British Columbia, and producing publicly available, regional-scale geoscience knowledge in Canada's North. Geochemical data, presented in this open file release, have been collected over sixteen years from 2000 to 2016 as part of regional mapping projects conducted under the auspices of the Geological Survey of Canada's Ancient Pacific Margin (NATMAP) and Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) programs, in collaboration with the Yukon Geological Survey. The data include major and trace element analyses for 811 rock samples, from a wide range of geological units that range in age from pre-Late Devonian to Paleocene"--Foreword, page 1.
