Mineral Possibilities of the Northwest Territories

ANY attempt to forecast the mineral resources of a largely unknown region is hazardous and, in the case of the Northwest Territories, such a task is even more hazardous than usual. This is not merely because of the immense territory involved ( over a million and a quarter square miles) , only a small fraction of which has ever been explored or prospected, but also because both the geology and mineral deposits thus far examined show many unique features, and, finally, because the region is being actively prospected at the present time.
