Geo-Mapping for Energy and Minerals


Without the public availability of reliable geological information, industry risks either investing in development in areas with low potential for energy and mineral resources or using inappropriate strategies to develop these resources. These risks can affect Canada's ability to attract investment; therefore, in order to attract investment, accessible and reliable geological information is required. The Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals (GEM) activities provide industry with modern geological information, facilitating industry’s ability to identify areas with potential sources of energy and mineral resources. The activities are focused on updating and disseminating the geological model, which identifies the potential areas where certain mineral and energy types could be located. This fills the critical information gap in the knowledge base needed to increase exploration investment and facilitate land-use decisions in the territories.
