Description: Nickel Company's grassroots exploration of the Canadian Arctic in the 1960 field season. Exploration of the Canadian Arctic documents the International Nickel Company's grassroots exploration of the Canadian Arctic in the 1960 field season. This well-detailed story of the search for economic mineralization in Canada's most isolated regions is at once fascinating and educational. In this historical adventure, Ronald Seavoy and his colleagues encounter many little-known arctic phenomenon, both animal and environmental, with interesting and unexpected results. Seavoy's thorough explanation of the events surrounding the discovery of gold at the Lupin orebody illuminates the trials and surprises an arctic explorer would have endured at the time. He also describes many exploration techniques, including helicopter prospecting, that were virtually untested at the time.
Ronald E. Seavoy is professor emeritus of history at Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio.
