This report describes archaeogeophysical fieldwork activities conducted on July 15, 2014 at the LdFa-1 site under Nunavut Archaeologist Permit 2014-22A. This research was carried out in conjunction with a larger ongoing investigation of archaeological sites and chert toolstone source locations in the deep interior region of southern Baffin Island (see Milne NAP report #2014-24A). Dr. Brooke Milne (CEOS, Anthropology, University of Manitoba) is the principal investigator on both projects. Project co-investigators include: Drs. Robert Park (Anthropology, University of Waterloo), Mostafa Fayek (Geological Sciences, University of Manitoba), and Douglas R. Stenton (Culture and Heritage, Government of Nunavut). In 2014, Dr. Ian Ferguson (Geological Sciences, University of Manitoba) joined the research team to oversee the archaeogeophysical survey at the site.
