The Canada-Nunavut Geoscience Office is pleased to be able to provide an annual Summary of Activities volume that reports results from current and completed public geoscience projects conducted or supported by the office. Articles have been published by staff, university and federal partners. In some cases articles were co-published with industry.

Limited hard copies are available free from CNGO and all digital copies can be downloaded through the links below.

The Canada-Nunavut Geoscience Office Summary of Activities volume will be released yearly at AME BC Mineral Exploration RoundUp Conference (in Vancouver at the end of January) and distributed at Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada International Convention (in Toronto in early March) and the Nunavut Mining Symposium (in Iqaluit in early April).
