Neoproterozoic stratigraphy, Mackenzie Mountains
Principal Investigator: Turner, Elizabeth C
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: This continuing research addresses the history of Earth-surface environments between about 1 billion and 700 million years ago. The objective is to complete the sample suite being used by a PhD student (most of the required samples are already in-hand). A base-camp of two people will be deployed by helicopter, and all work done on foot. Working on mountainside rock exposures, the research team ...


Mackenzie Mountains bedrock mapping and stratigraphic studies
Principal Investigator: MacNaughton, Robert B.
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The objective of this research is to improve the public understanding of bedrock geology of two regions of the Mackenzie Mountains, including folding and faulting, stratigraphic relationships, tectonic history, and economic mineralogy. This objective includes sharing geoscience information with all interested parties through the production and publication of bedrock geology maps and reports on the...


Beaulieu River Belt Collaborative VMS Project
Principal Investigator: Knox, Bernadette
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: The objectives of this project are to update and increase the understanding of the geological history of an area along the Beaulieu River. The work will be conducted mostly on foot with access to the shore provided by canoe and zodiac boat. Notes on the geology will be taken and entered into a database. Holes up to 1m in depth will be dug to make observations and take samples of the till, the h...


The Mackenzie Mountains Earthscope Project
Principal Investigator: Schutt, Derek L
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The Mackenzie Mountains EarthScope project (MMEP) is funded under the EarthScope program of the U.S. National Science Foundation. This project is collaborating with the larger EarthScope USArray project, which will be studying seismicity (earthquakes) and earth structure in the broader northwestern Canadian and Alaskan regions, and with Canadian researchers from several agencies including the Yuko...


Understanding changes in aquatic ecosystem health and water quality in the Fort Good Hope – Ramparts Area
Principal Investigator: Gurney, Kirsty E.
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The project aims to build community partnerships, identify field sites, and develop and implement sampling protocols for long term, community-based, monitoring of wetland ecosystems near Fort Good Hope. Whereas some wetlands in the study area have either already been, or are likely to be, impacted by a wide range of industrial activities, including development of oil and gas and associated inf...


Southern Mackenzie Surficial Mapping
Principal Investigator: Paulen, Roger C.
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: Activities in the study are focused on making a map of the surface sediments. The map will help to understand surface material distribution and thickness, how these materials were deposited by glaciers, and where the bedrock outcrops. Soil samples will be collected across the study area. The mineralogical and geochemical analyses of these samples will help to understand where the materials were de...


Metallogenic Investigation of the East Arm
Principal Investigator: Cairns, Scott
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: Recent evolving thoughts on the geological history of the East Arm of Great Slave Lake require the area to be re-evaluated with respect to its structural and metamorphic history as well as to explain its metal endowment. This study seeks to evaluate the structural and metamorphic history of the area, and its potential to host economic mineralization. Field investigations will examine exposures ...


Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Program: Western Arctic Project - Smoking Hills
Principal Investigator: Smith, Rod
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: This research will provide the geological information needed to correlate Cretaceous (<140 Ma) and younger geology of the Smoking Hills with that on Banks Island and elsewhere in the Canadian High Arctic and Mackenzie-Beaufort region. This will provide a greater understanding of the age and evolution of the offshore Canada Basin (Arctic Ocean). Studies of kimberlite indicator minerals will provide...


EarthScope Transportable Array
Principal Investigator: Busby, Robert W
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: This project consists of a large deployment of ground motion sensors (~270 total) throughout Alaska and western Canada; 28 located in Yukon Territory and 5 in the Northwest Territory. Each station senses the ground movement from distant earthquakes and sends data via satellite or radio modem to a central receiving point in San Diego. The purpose of collecting these data is to study deep geologic s...


Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Merzouk, Anissa
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The 2017 field program constitutes a subset of activities of the ArcticNet’s marine-based research program that has been conducted in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (IRS) within the framework of Scientific Research Licenses awarded for 2009-2013, for 2014-2015 and for 2016-2017. Planned activities will focus on the recovery and deployment of oceanographic moorings as part of ArcticNet’s Long...
