De Beers Canada Snap Lake Mine Environmental Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Hood, Alexandra E
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2002 2001 2000 1999
Summary: 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 ...


Geoscience Tools for Supporting Environmental Risk Assessment of Metal Mining
Principal Investigator: Galloway, Jennifer
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: 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 ...


Assessing the impact of small, Canadian Arctic river flows to the freshwater budget of the Canadian Archipelago
Principal Investigator: Alkire, Matthew B
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014
Summary: 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...


Examining the Acasta Gneiss Complex: A Broader Scope
Principal Investigator: Belosevic, Mike
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: 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...


Slave Province Surficial Materials and Permafrost Study
Principal Investigator: Elliott, Barrett R
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: 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...


Sedimentology and Ichnology of the Cambrian Mount Clark and Mount Cap Formations, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Gingras, Murray K
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: 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...


Tracking environmental change in the Neoproterozoic Sheepbed and Keele Formations, Mackenzie Mountains, Northwest Territories, Canada
Principal Investigator: Sperling, Erik A
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: 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...


Early Neoproterozoic Stratigraphy of the Mackenzie Mountains
Principal Investigator: Halverson, Galen P
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2011
Summary: 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...


Biogeochemical variations in Pleistocene and Holocene-age permafrost across various ecological landscapes, western Canadian Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Lacelle, Denis
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: 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...


Petrogenesis of the Acasta Gneiss Complex: Ancient Rocks Revisited
Principal Investigator: Reimink, Jesse R
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011
Summary: 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...
