The Yukon is underlain by a great variety of rock types ranging in age from Early Proterozoic to Recent. The various rock types are characterized by different magnetic intensity and this map show those variations at the regional scale, with highly magnetic rocks represented by warm colours and non-magnetic rocks shown in cool colours. The First Vertical Derivative magnetic map highlights the magnetic intensity of near-surface features in the Earth's crust. This magnetic compilation was extracted from the compilation of Oneschuk et al. (2019). The data was gridded at 50 m.
