Products: ArcGIS Desktop 10.5

The Nova Scotia Department of Energy and Mines (formerly Natural Resources) initiated a geological mapping program in the Antigonish Highlands in Northern Nova Scotia. The goals were to produce a geological bedrock map of the area; describe and interpret the sedimentary, igneous, metamorphic and deformational history of the area; and evaluate the area’s economic potential. This map from the program was published in 2018 by author C.E. White. GIS databases and cartography were done by A.L. Barras and J.S. McKinnon from the Department’s Information Services Section.
