Mackenzie craton
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objective is to make diamond exploration more efficient in remote northern regions in order to encourage further investments by multi-national diamond exploration companies. Also to enable local communities to better assess their natural resource potential. The research team will record earthquake waves at several widely-spaced locations in the NWT in order to map deep (100-300 km depths) s...


Teleseismic studies in the Wopmay
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: This ongoing study will investigate the structure and composition of the Earth's crust and mantle to depths of 0-300 m. The researchers seek better methods to characterize diamond reservoirs in order to make exploration more efficient and lower impact. Teleseismic observatories are sited in remote locations in either linear or rectangular arrays where they record distant earthquakes for several...


Teleseismic studies in the Lac de Gras area
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2003 2000 1999
Summary: The objective of this ongoing study is to investigate the structure and composition of the Earth's crust and mantle to depths of 0-300 km from sites in the Lac de Gras region. The researchers seek methods to characterize diamond reservoirs in order to make diamond exploration more efficient and low impact. This research will lead to improved mineral exploration strategies, improved estimates of d...


Teleseismic Studies in the Central Slave Craton
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: The objective of this ongoing study is to investigate the structure and composition of the Earth's crust and mantle to depths of 0 - 300 km from sites in the Lac de Gras area. Methods are being sought to characterize diamond reservoirs in order to make d...
