Objective(s): The Snare River project area is in the Slave Structural Province of the Northwest Territories, approximately 140 km northwest of Yellowknife. Geological data on the area is sparse, and limited to 1:250,000 regional mapping by the Geological Survey of Canada in the late 1930's. Aerially restricted information on the area is contained within mining industry assessment reports. The geology of the area is poorly understood, and no modern geoscience data-sets are available. The mapping project will define the structural, metamorphic, lithographical and geochemical bedrock characteristics of the area, providing an up-dated geological data base.
