    Bedrock geological map of Canada 1:5 000 000

    The map displays bedrock formations at or near the surface of the land, on the sea floor above the continental crust that forms the Canadian landmass, and oceanic crust surrounding the landmass. The bedrock units are grouped and coloured according to geological age and composition. The colours of...

    Geological map of the Arctic, 1:5 000 000

    As part of the International Polar Year (IPY) 2007'08 and 2008'09 activities, and related objectives of the Commission for the Geological Map of the World (CGMW), nations of the circumpolar Arctic have co-operated to produce a new bedrock geology map and related digital map database at a scale of...

    Timmins Kidd Creek; VSP phase2; vertical seismic profile

    Surface-seismic profiling is well suited for geological provinces characterized by low-to-moderate dip, but it is less effective where dips exceed 65o due to inherent limitations of the recording geometry and processing algorithms. This project evaluated the effectiveness of VSP methods for...

    Regional, lithological and temporal variation in the abundances of some trace...

    Samples of rocks during reconnaissance geological mapping by Geological Survey of Canada field parties have been used to estimate the average abundance of some trace elements in the surface crystalline rocks of the Canadian Shield. The preferred values are as follows, in ppm: Ni, 19; Cu, 26; Zn,...
