    Bedrock Geological Units, Groundwater Geoscience Program

    The bedrock geologic units designate units of the same types of rock which composed the solid rock exposed at ground surface (as outcrop) or which underlies unconsolidated surficial sediments. This dataset represents a general description of the stratigraphy and geology, including geologic unit...

    Hydrogeological Regions

    Hydrogeological regions are areas in which the properties of sub-surface water, or groundwater, are broadly similar in geology, climate and topography. Hydrogeology is the branch of geology that deals with the distribution and movement of water beneath the earth’s surface. This map shows Canada’s...

    Groundwater Samples, Groundwater Geoscience Program

    Groundwater samples have been collected in the hydrogeological unit, for various types of analysis. The dataset is not used to represent a particular phenomenon or observation but rather as a utility dataset to add context and reference to groundwater analysis. It represents a general description...

    Piezometric Surface, Groundwater Geoscience Program

    Level below which soil or rock is saturated with water, in the well and at the time the level has been measured, expressed in m above the sea level. Groundwater levels measured are interpolated / extrapolated to obtain groundwater level on every cell of the hydrogeological unit raster. Surfer and...

    Groundwater Level, Time Series, Groundwater Geoscience Program

    Level below which soil or rock is saturated with water, in the well and at the time the level has been measured, expressed in m above the sea level. Groundwater depth is measured on set intervals on the field, using a levelogger. The depth is then subtracted from the measurement site elevation to...

    Flin Flon; Line 11; 2D seismic reflection

    The Flin Flon mining camp in Manitoba, Canada, forms part of the largest Paleoproterozoic volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) district in the world. Seismic characterization of the camp using vsp, 2d and 3d reflection profiling has mapped various structures and aiding in tageting mineral resources.

    Norman West 98; VSPs 126-526; vertical seismic profile

    Borehole seismic field tests were conducted over a sub-economic massive sulphide deposits located in Norman West, Ontario to assess the usefulness of this technique for the exploration of base metal deposits. The field tests were conducted by the Downhole Seismic Imaging (DSI) consortium.

    Sudbury VSP; Blezard VSP; vertical seismic profile

    Seismic reflection profiling has the potential to provide images of regional structures for mineral exploration in the crystalline crust and direct detection of large, massive sulfide orebodies. These methods are illustrated using an example from the Sudbury Basin, a rich mineral-producing region.
