Mineral Assessment of the Eagle Plain Study Area, Yukon.

Mineral Assessment of the Eagle Plain Study Area, Yukon. This report outlines the results and the conclusions of a study of the mineral potential of the Eagle Plains area. The accompanying mineral potential map ranks the different tracts according to their relative order of mineral potential, from highest to lowest. The highest ranking rocks occur on the flanks of the Richardson Anticlinorium which corresponds to the flanks of the southern Richardson Mountains. Other contributions resulting from this study include: complete geochemical coverage of the area provided by a new Regional Geochemical Survey and reanalysis of silt samples of a pre-existing survey; the discovery of several new mineral occurrences; the discovery of rocks of possible volcanic origin, previously undocumented in the area; and modifications to the pre-existing geology maps. 2022-03-29 Government of Yukon geology@gov.yk.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyYukon Geological SurveyYukon DataGovernment information Original metadata (https://open.yukon.ca)HTML https://open.yukon.ca/data/datasets/mineral-assessment-eagle-plain-study-area-yukon Report and mapsPDF https://ygsftp.gov.yk.ca/publications/openfile/2006/of2006_3.pdf
