Project Description

Main objectives:

The overall objective is to provide a legacy of unique, digitally-documented, locality-specific Manitoba geological and geomorphological localities (Geolocalities) on the MGS portion of the Manitoba Government Provincial Data Network for use by MGS staff; and selected information on YouTube™ (Manitoba Virtual GeoTours) for use by the general public.

Methodology:

The project will involve the compilation of a repository from video, still photography and detailed geological descriptions of Manitoba outcrops and landforms from MGS, GSC and other sources field notes, guidebooks and reports. The initial test of the methodology will focus on incorporating the selected sites visited by James Bamburak during his employment as Industrial Minerals Geologist during the past 20+ years; including sites documented during the MGS Roadside Geology experience over the last five years. The long term goal will be to include selected localities of other MGS staff.

 

Benefits:

The project addresses a need to preserve a legacy of geological knowledge of the staff of the MGS in a format that is easily accessible and is in a format that can be downloaded as an educational tool by MGS staff or the public; or for use by industry in developing exploration strategies and logistics.

 

Plans for fiscal year 2017-2018:

  • 2013 and 2016 GeoTours presented on YouTube™.
  • Field trip to northern Interlake in May or June 2017 to video record Roadside Geology.
