Objective(s): To produce a geological map of an area with potential diamond and precious or base-metal deposits. To identify and document mineral occurrences. To increase the geological knowledge and database in NWT. To stimulate industry exploration in the area.

Project Description: The researchers will examine, document, and sample surface outcrops in the study area. The information will be recorded on a map which will summarize the geological rock-types and mineral resources of the area. The researchers will camp at two separate sites during the field season. The work will consist primarily of daily walks from wherever they can get their inflatable boat. Airplane support will be provided for camp moves and the occasional set-out to areas the researchers cannot access on foot.
