Objective(s): The research team will complete a petroleum prospecting project, involving structural mapping using aerial photography, rock measurements and rock specimen sampling.

Project Description: The project team will be based in Ft. Liard, and travel in the field by Deh Cho Helicopters. The itinerary of the field is weather dependant. The duration of the proposed field studies will be from 10 August-26 August, 2001. Rock samples (fist sized) will be collected, and returned to the laboratory for detailed chemical analysis. Structural mapping will be traced on aerial photos and transferred to topographic base maps. Existing government geological maps will be used to spot check previously mapped ambiguous, anomalous or critical areas for examination.
