Mandate: Provide accurate and objective earth science data, information, and knowledge, including geological Earth resources (minerals, groundwater, energy). Users: All Ontario’s citizens and institutions, including Aboriginal people. History: 1891 Ontario legislature created OGS. What is Geology? : What is Geology? Study of the composition, structure, physical properties, dynamics, and history of Earth materials, and the processes that formed, moved, and changed them. Slide 4: Ministry of Northern Development, Mines & Forestry OGS Function: Document the Geology Groundwater Landform, Habitat, Aggregate Mineral Resource Ontario at, and below, your feet Slide 6: Geology is a field-based science Geological problems: need field work to read the story hidden in the rocks and soils. Many employment options: mineral groundwater energy geological hazards geotechnical environment planning policy Slide 7: OGS Field Work Output: Geological Publications, Maps, Reports, Data : Output: Geological Publications, Maps, Reports, Data Output: Lots of Different Types of Geological Maps : Output: Lots of Different Types of Geological Maps Geophysical Geochemical Glacial deposits Bedrock Groundwater Aggregate Groundwater Protection Output: Earth Resource Inventory : Output: Earth Resource Inventory Energy Groundwater Industrial / construction minerals Metallic minerals Industrial minerals Slide 11: Output: Estimates of Earth Resource Potential Output: Inorganic Geochemical Analyses of Rocks, Minerals, Soils, Groundwater : Output: Inorganic Geochemical Analyses of Rocks, Minerals, Soils, Groundwater Output: Digital and Paper Library of Geological Data & Information : Output: Digital and Paper Library of Geological Data & Information Output: Geological Knowledge & Service : Output: Geological Knowledge & Service Output: Geoscience to Support Land-use Planning : Output: Geoscience to Support Land-use Planning Aquifer risk Landslide risk Market Ontario’s Geoscience and Mineral Investment Potential : Market Ontario’s Geoscience and Mineral Investment Potential Mineral Sector Analysis & Policy Formulation : Mineral Sector Analysis & Policy Formulation OGS Aboriginal Community Engagement, Communication, Collaboration : OGS Aboriginal Community Engagement, Communication, Collaboration Geology – Is It All Mapped?Old and New Map of Sand and Gravel : Geology – Is It All Mapped?Old and New Map of Sand and Gravel Old Survey Map 2009 Survey Map You can make a decision with no data, a better decision with some data that may be old, and you can make the best decision with the right, modern data. Slide 20: Why does Ontario Government (Ontario Geological Survey) collect public geological information?
