Abstract: Alberta Geological Survey Bulletin 64 documents 190 metallic mineral occurrences. We have digitized these occurrences into GIS format as a point shapefile. The description of these 190 metallic mineral occurrences on the exposed Precambrian Shield of northeast Alberta provides models for mineral deposition, establishes exploration targets and gives insights into the economic potential of the mineral showings. Commodities include gold, uranium, base metals and rare-earth elements. Among these occurrences, we have investigated 20 of them sufficiently, and they are of sufficient exploration importance to be classified as a mineral showing.

Process step: Process step: Description: Information from the Appendix found on pages 54 to 71 from Bulletin 64 were entered into a spreadsheet exactly as they appear. In cases where a Mineral Occurrence had more than one location given a suffix of a,b,c etc. was added. This increased the total number of Mineral Occurences from 190 as published, to 220. Coordinates were converted from UTM Zone 12 NAD27 to UTM Zone 12 NAD83. These additional coordinates were added to the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet was then converted to a GIS shapefile.
