General Information

Abstract: The Yukon bedrock geology map is in constant evolution as new mapping, geochronology and other geoscience studies improve the stratigraphy, and bring more detailed relationships into focus. The Digital Bedrock Geology GIS dataset used to produce this map is regularly updated and can be downloaded from the Yukon Geological Survey’s website:http://data.geology.gov.yk.ca/Compilation/3. Users are advised to consult the website regularly to ensure they are working with the latest version of the geodatabase or shape files. This Open File map is based on the 2022 version of the bedrock geology dataset; it is accompanied by a detailed Legend (Sheet 2) that summarizes current understanding of rock assemblages and stratigraphic units. The Yukon bedrock geology map can also be viewed and queried online using the Yukon Geological Survey interactive map service: https://yukon.ca/en/yukon-geology#bedrock-geology.
