Data related to borehole lithology intervals for boreholes in Canada, obtained by the Canadian Geothermal Data Compilation. The data table includes general information on the location of the borehole, location uncertainty, related resources and remarks, consisting of 4,395 logs. Citations are included in the dataset. Members of the Geothermal Group of the Earth Physics Branch (1962-1986) have undertaken a comprehensive compilation of the data generated over the last 40 years. A data system has been designed to accommodate data of many different types and different formats. The data have been assembled from several different digital data sets, paper files, and field note-books.
