MSc: Orogenic unroofing in the Rae Craton recorded through U-Pb geochronology of the Paleoproterozoic Nonacho Group, Northwest Territories

The Nonacho Group comprise a succession of Paleoproterozoic sedimentary rocks on the southeast side of Great Slave Lake, Northwest Territories. Conceptually, it is found at the interface of many streams of geology that are of renewed research interest to geologists working on understanding the Precambrian history of the Rae Craton. My project is aimed at resolving the tectonostratigraphy of enigmatic sedimentary basin in an underexplored corner of the Rae Craton, and its relation to  erosional unroofing during the amalgamation of the ancient Canadian Shield.
