Principal Investigator:Buse, Sarah Licenced Year(s):
This research is for an M.Sc. project focused on defining the granites within the Wecho River area and is in conjunction with the Wecho River Mapping Project (Scientific Licence #13614). Mapping will be conducted throughout the summer. Mapping data will...
Principal Investigator:Martel, Edith Licenced Year(s):
The research team will be transported from Yellowknife by aircraft, and will travel by small boat in the field. Samples (fist-sized chunks of rock) will be collected with a hammer, and returned to the laboratory for detailed physical and chemical analysis. Field camps will be low impact, and will be occupied by only 2 persons at a time. All human waste will be buried, all non-burnable garbage w...
Principal Investigator:Ketchum, John Licenced Year(s):
During the proposed study, transportation of the research team to the field will be by fixed-wing float plane from Yellowknife. From the base camp at Grant Lake, the research team will examine the study area immediately to the east on foot and by inflatable boat. Rock samples up to 20 kg (45 lbs) will be collected for age dating. It is anticipated that only 4-5 samples will be collected for dating...
Principal Investigator:Bleeker, Wouter Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this study is to improve the geological understanding of the Slave Geological Province in general and specific key areas in more detail (eg. areas northeast of Yellowknife known as the Sleepy Dragon Complex, the Acasta Gneiss Complex, the Courageous Lake area, etc.). Various rock types will be mapped and described and their role in the complex geological history of the Slave Prov...
Principal Investigator:Pehrsson, Sally J Licenced Year(s):1996
This will be the researcher's concluding summer for this project. The detailed mapping data (structural, petrological) in combination with the geochemical and geochronological sampling will be accomplished by foot and boat traverses with occasional fixed and rotary wing support. All data will be entered digitally for computer map compilation....
Principal Investigator:Hrabi, Blair Licenced Year(s):
This will be the final summer of field work for this project. The detailed mapping data in combination with geochemistry will enable the researcher to gie a detailed geological history of the area, including timing of certain geological events (age of volcanism and granite plutons) as well as a deformational history....
Principal Investigator:Vincent, Jean-Serge Licenced Year(s):
The researcher and his team will complete a detailed paleomagnetic sampling of the glacial and nonglacial sediments in the Morgan Bluffs of eastern Banks Island, and collect samples of boulders for Chlorine 36 dating. The data will allow the team to confirm or disconfirm previously proposed correlations and establish on a firmer basis the chronological framework for one of the longest sequences o...
Principal Investigator:Thompson, Peter H. Licenced Year(s):1994
Using a combination of regional bedrock mapping, detailed mapping, and special studies in the fields of petrology, structural geology, geochronology, geophysics, metallogeny and surficial geology, the research will determine the origin, evolution and economic potential of part of the Slave Structural Province, Canadian Shield....
Principal Investigator:Muecke, Gunter K. Licenced Year(s):1992
The Researcher and assistants will investigate the field relations, petrology, mineralogy, geochemistry, and geochronology of magmatic rocks of the northern Canadian Arctic Islands....
Principal Investigator:Bell, Trevor Licenced Year(s):1993
This research is an extension of previous fieldwork completed in 1988 and 1989. Mapping surficial deposits and reconstructing former ice limits and sea level adjustments, investigations of landforms and associated sediments, collection and dating of organic material pertaining to terrestrial and raised marine deposits, and mapping distributions of glacial erratics will be undertaken....
