Reconnaissance Study of Smoking Hills
Principal Investigator: Dunfield, Peter F
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this work is to conduct a one day reconnaissance study of the Smoking Hills area. Mineral, rock, water and soil samples will be collected. Geochemical properties and microbial communities will be analysed in the laboratory in order to characterize any potential features unique to this site that would warrant future, more detailed research. The site will be accessed by helicopt...


Mineralogy, Geochemistry, and Fluid Inclusions of the Caribou Lake Layered Mafic-Ultramafic Intrusion
Principal Investigator: Neyedley, Kevin
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The purpose of the study is to examine the rocks near Blachford lake lodge to gain a better understanding of how they formed and why there are there. Initial mapping has shown that they are unusual with more iron and nickel in them than would be normally expected and we would like to look at them to better understand their history. There have been exploration companies interested in these rocks an...


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; 3) ...


Heavy mineral indicator tracing in glaciated terrains
Principal Investigator: Kjarsgaard, Bruce
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: The objective of this study is to improve understanding of transportation and deposition of heavy minerals in surficial materials (till and esker systems). The study area is approximately 60 x 100 km, is located east of Thaydene Nene National Park, and adjacent to the Quaternary ice divide. Work on the ground, over a 2 week period, will involve sample collection of surficial materials in order...


Hydrothermal event recognition and vectoring to SEDEX ore system in shale basins, Yukon and NWT
Principal Investigator: Paradis, Suzanne
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to identify some proximal (close) and distal (at a distance) mineralogical and chemical elements that will indicate that rocks in a sedimentary basin are likely or not to be rich in metals; and to understand how metals were emplaced in rocks, and how they disperse once the rocks are weathered. This has implications for the land, environment and mineral i...


Petrogenesis of the Blachford Lake Intrusive Suite
Principal Investigator: Mumford, Thomas R.
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010
Summary: With increasing activity at the Nechalacho Rare Earth Element Deposit a better geological understanding of the setting of the mineral deposit is required. This study is fundamentally concerned with how and why the deposit exists. This is achieved by studying the entire Blachford Lake intrusive suite (>300 km2), the igneous system which generated the deposit. From this, a petrogenetic framework wil...


Late Proterozoic stratigraphy of northwestern Canada and its record of Earth system evolution
Principal Investigator: Halverson, Galen P
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2011
Summary: The objectives of this study are: 1. to improve the geological, tectonic, and geochemical constraints on the emplacement of ca. 780 Ma Little Dal Basalt and associated sill and dikes and the deposition of the overlying Coats Lake Group; and 2. to improve correlation between the Little Dal Group and similar-aged strata in the Yukon Territory in order to under the origin and geometry of this sedim...


GEM Great Bear magmatic zone/iron oxide copper-gold deposit project
Principal Investigator: Corriveau, Louise
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of the Great Bear/IOCG geoscience research and mapping project are to: • develop a modern geological, crustal architecture and exploration framework for polymetallic iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposit-type mineralizing systems in the Great Bear magmatic zone and new exploration methods for IOCG deposits in glaciated terrains; • validate deposit-type model for known mineral occu...


Resource Assessment of Emerald in the Northern Cordillera: parts of NTS 1051
Principal Investigator: Falck, Hendrik
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002
Summary: The purpose of this project is to develop exploration guidelines for emeralds in the NWT. We propose to spend July 2002 in the Lened area, where we will produce detailed geological maps and collect samples for laboratory analysis (whole-rock chemistry, e...


Surficial Geology and Till Geochemistry of the Yellowknife Greenstone Belt Area.
Principal Investigator: Kerr, Daniel E.
Licenced Year(s): 2001 2000 1999
Summary: The primary objective is to provide geoscience data and new exploration techniques in the Yellowknife Greenstone Belt area that can be used in delineation of reserves and discovery of new mineral deposits. The main mode of transportation will be by helicopter (206L), float plane, truck (where road access is available), and possibly by boat. The helicopter and plane will be based out of Yellowkni...
