The Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) program helps to unlock the full mineral and energy potential of the North and to promote responsible land development in the region by mapping its geology.
Since 2008, the GEM program has produced more than 1000 maps and reports, providing the exploration industry and northern communities with valuable tools to explore Canada’s North.
