Abstract

In the eastern Canadian Arctic Archipelago major coal resources occur within the late Cretaceous and Tertiary Eureka Sound Formation. The formation, which ranges in thickness from thin erosional outliers on central Axel Heiberg Island to a maximum thickness of 3300 m on Fosheim Peninsula, Ellesmere Island, contains numerous thick seams of coal. The coal is highly variable in quality... Inferred resources within the area of study are calculated as 30.000 million tonnes of which 15.000 million tonnes are lignite, 11.000 million tonnes are sub-bituminous and 4.000 million tonnes are high-volatile bituminous.
