Local geology is a crucial part of the characterisation of any exploration target. The 1:250,000 scale geological map of the Yukon was used to segment the geochemical samples before thresholding, and to characterise the geology of sample sites and their surroundings.
MineMatch® and the underlying mineral deposit models use rock terminology that comes from the CGI’s GeoSCIML lithology vocabulary.
To enable optimal cross-referencing to the rock-type terminology used in the MineMatch® mineral deposit models, the Yukon Geological Survey's bedrock geology was translated to match the terminology of the GeoSCIML vocabulary, against which MineMatch® is standardised.
The styling for the INSPIRE compliant geology map follows the styles recommended by INSPIRE based on the attribute "older named age". The legend for this portrayal is shown below.
