Comment The Snare River mapping project is an initiative of the NTGO, the area (parts of NTS sheet 85O and 85N) is northwest of Yellowknife and lies along the southwestern margin of the Archean Slave craton. The area encompasses a vast amount of granitoid rocks, but importantly also rocks of the Yellowknife Supergroup. Some of these supracrustal rocks attained granulite grade metamorphic conditions; such high-grade rocks are rare in the Slave. The Snare River project stitches together previous detailed maps produced in the 1980?s and early 1990?s to present a cohesive picture of the geology of this region of the Slave craton. This project contains a digital bedrock geology map and associated point, line, and polygon data. It was produced at the Northwest Territories Geoscience Office (NTGO) from data collected during the 1998 to 2002 field seasons in the Snare River area. The compilation contains the results of 1:30 000 scale mapping compiled at 1:50 000 from Jackson, V.A. (2003), and some archival data from previous work.
