Comment In July, 2003, a 5-day field trip to selected localities in the southern Great Bear Magmatic Zone of Wopmay Orogen was undertaken by staff at the C.S. Lord Northern Geoscience Centre. The field trip was organized and led by Dr. Sunil Gandhi, who was contracted to provide an overview of the geological settings of the various types of mineral deposits that have been documented in the area. The field trip constituted a portion of the work presently underway to define and plan new bedrock mapping and integrated research in the Wopmay Orogen. The project team will be led by Valerie Jackson. Other preparatory work includes a compilation of all existing bedrock, lithogeochemical, geochronological, and remotely-sensed data (airborne geophysics, satellite images, etc.) south of latitude 65?N, and a meeting with members of the Geological Survey of Canada to discuss scientific gaps and priorities. The final workplan for the Southern Wopmay project will be a result of all three activities: data compilation, the priorities meeting, and the field trip. The attached document is a final report submitted by Dr. Ghandi summarizing highlights of the July 2003 field trip. It has not been edited by C.S. Lord staff. The report includes recommendations for further metallogenic studies and geological mapping; it should be noted that these are the recommendations of the author, and not necessarily those of the C.S. Lord team that will be leading the project.
