Project Description: The purpose of this study is to improve the public knowledge and understanding of the geology of this area, as no publicly available magnetic survey coverage exists. This survey is entirely airborne, with no land access. The aircraft will be equipped with a state of the art magnetometer and navigation systems, including Global Positioning System (GPS). The aircraft will be operating from the Inuvik airport. All survey data will eventually be made available through the GSC Geophysical Data Center.
