North Slave Permafrost Study: Characterizing and Predicting Discontinuous Permafrost for Climate Change Adaptation
Principal Investigator: Wolfe, Stephen A
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: This activity will describe and predict the occurrence of discontinuous permafrost in the northern Great Slave Lake region to assist in planning, development and maintenance of community and industry infrastructure. Future changes in climate will affect permafrost distribution, temperatures and geotechnical conditions. It is anticipated that different landscapes across the region will exhibit vary...

Teleseismic studies in the Wopmay
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: This ongoing study will investigate the structure and composition of the Earth's crust and mantle to depths of 0-300 kilometres. The research team seeks better methods to characterize diamond reservoirs in order to make exploration more efficient and low impact. Teleseismic observatories are sited in remote locations in either linear or rectangular arrays where they record distant earthquakes ...

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. To achieve the objectives, preliminary field work will continue during the summer months of July and August of 2013 and 2014. The field work consists of: - fam...

Stratigraphy of the Misty Creek Embayment
Principal Investigator: Turner, Elizabeth C
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: This is a Masters of Science research project aimed at understanding the geological evolution of a deep-marine environment that existed in the northern Mackenzie Mountains between 500 and 450 million years ago. The project team will establish small 2-3 person camps on or near a mountainside where we already know, based on previous work, that the rocks they are interested in will be exposed. Eac...

Cambrian stratigraphy
Principal Investigator: Pratt, Brian R.
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2002 2000 1998
Summary: The principal investigator has been working off and on for many years on the stratigraphy and paleontology of Cambrian strata of the Mackenzie Mountains. This is a critical region of North America because the record of sedimentation on the flank of the continent as it was over half a billion years ago is particularly extensive with little interruption. At the section of interest the lower part of ...

Permafrost vulnerability assessment and landscape changes related to climate change in the Jean Marie River First Nation
Principal Investigator: Ireland, Margaret
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1. Gather Traditional, local, and scientific knowledge and information concerning environmental and cultural changes related to climate change and permafrost degradation. 2. Conduct a focus group mapping session, a geological survey, and an air photo survey of Jean Marie River (JMR) and the surrounding area to locate vulnerable areas of land to climate c...

Geological Fieldwork in Mackenzie Plain and Adjacent Mountains
Principal Investigator: MacNaughton, Robert B.
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The goals of this research project are to increase the geoscience knowledge of the NWT, particularly around Norman Wells and Tulita, and in the surrounding mountains, to provide public geoscience information to all stakeholders through the production of bedrock geology maps and related reports on petroleum potential, and to encourage new and more effective exploration for oil and gas that will lea...

Environmental Assessment for ConocoPhillips EL470
Principal Investigator: Marken, Sandra L
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1. To perform Initial scoping-level site assessment of Study Area to help inform the more detailed environmental assessment. The research team will use helicopter access to fly over the Study Area and assess overall environmental setting, identify likely sensitive areas, and focus on potential locations for drilling, access, staging and camps. Equipme...

Thermochronologic approaches for fundamental energy exploration (TAFFEE)
Principal Investigator: Guest, Bernard
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The goal of this project is to enhance Canada's capacity in the development and application of new methodologies to directly contribute to the development of integrated models of sedimentary basin development and evolution that will inform and guide oil and gas exploration in northern Canada, especially in the three Territories. This summer, rock samples will be collected from the MacKenzie del...

Upper Cretaceous paleoenvironmental reconstruction of the gateway between the Boreal and Western Interior Seas: The Boundary Creek and Smoking Hills Formations, NWT
Principal Investigator: Schroder-Adams, Claudia J.
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The main objective of this research project is to improve the stratigraphic framework of the Cretaceous Western Interior Sea region and the understanding of the paleoenvironmental setting of a Cretaceous aged oceanographic gateway between the Boreal Sea and the Western Interior Sea that flooded large parts of North America. The proposed localities have the type section of the two targeted forma...
