Principal Investigator:Galloway, Jennifer Licenced Year(s):
This project will focus on providing baseline information for areas of high resource potential. In areas of past land use and soon to be developed areas in the Slave Geological Province, the project will generate new spatial and temporal data on changing geochemical, permafrost, ecological and climate data for the past 1000 years. This data will be integrated with Traditional Ecological Knowledge ...
Principal Investigator:Alkire, Matthew B Licenced Year(s):
There are two primary goals of this project: 1) to determine whether relatively small Canadian Arctic rivers significantly contribute to the total volume of freshwater that drains through Davis Strait; and, 2) to determine if they are chemically distinct from larger North American rivers such as the Mackenzie and Yukon Rivers. To achieve these goals the research team propose to collect water sampl...

To meet regulatory requirements from the Snap Lake Environmental Assessment and under the mine's Water License, Land Use permit and Environmental Agreement.
The objectives of this research project are:
1) to obtain and determine annual variability of the following information in the study area:
•the relative abundance, distribution, group composition and behaviour of caribou;
•the relative ...
Principal Investigator:Belosevic, Mike Licenced Year(s):
This study is designed to encompass the following goals: 1) Collect samples from the expanded Acasta Gneiss Complex (AGC) study area; 2) Perform field mapping and general exploration of the expanded study area; 3) Perform age dating and isotopic analysis of the collected samples along with whole-rock geochemistry to compare data with those in the extensively studied AGC body adjacent to the Acasta...

The Northwest Territories Geoscience Office in the Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment (ITI) has developed a large collaborative research project to determine the detailed glacial history and permafrost conditions of the central Slave Geological Province.
The project goals are to:
- stimulate the next round of diamond and metals exploration in the Slave Province
- collect permafr...
Principal Investigator:Gingras, Murray K Licenced Year(s):
For the Mount Clark Formation, the primary goals are: (1) to use sedimentological and trace-fossil data to determine the sedimentary environment so that the distribution of sand bodies might be better understood; (2) to conduct petrographic investigations to understand the distribution of diagenetic cements and porosity; (3) to establish if there is a relationship between bioturbation and porosity...
Principal Investigator:Sperling, Erik A Licenced Year(s):
The objective is to collect high quality and high resolution stratigraphic and sedimentological data of the Sheepbed and Keele Formations at their type localities, along with accompanying samples for geochemical and petrological analysis. Specifically, the overall goal is to understand how these formations at their type sections relates to their correlatives throughout northwestern Canada, and det...
Principal Investigator:Halverson, Galen P Licenced Year(s):
The objectives are to collect high quality and high resolution stratigraphic and sedimentological data in the field, along with accompanying samples for geochemical and petrological analysis. At the same time, all field areas in which the group works will be mapped in detail.
The field party will separate into two groups. One group will be focused on logging stratigraphic sections and sampling...
Principal Investigator:Lacelle, Denis Licenced Year(s):
The proposed project is a collaborative work between academic researchers, the NWT Geoscience Office and local communities. The objectives of the project are to: (1) investigate geochemical variations in the uppermost 3-5m of permafrost in the western Canadian Arctic; (2) assess potential geochemical implications of anticipated permafrost thaw on terrestrial and aquatic systems; (3) examine soil c...
Principal Investigator:Reimink, Jesse R Licenced Year(s):
The present study aims to obtain information with the following objectives: 1) further describe, sample, and document field relationships and structures present in areas that were sampled and found to be significantly old (>3.8 billion years); 2) explore and sample other units which based on field relationships and mineralogy are likely to be as old or older than previously documented samples; and...
