Principal Investigator:Hawkins, Jim R. Licenced Year(s):
A field office will be set up in Norman Wells. Primary access to the field is the winter road that extends north of Wrigley to Fort Good Hope. Two temporary rig camps will be set up, one near the Hamlet of Tulita and the other near the intersection of of the existing winter road and Little Smith Creek. Each camp will be able to accommodate up to 65 people. Secondary access to the investigation s...
Principal Investigator:Jackson, Valerie A Licenced Year(s):
The Snare River mapping project will define the structural, metamorphic, lithographical and geochemical bedrock characteristics of the area, providing an up-dated geological data base. The mapping team will be flown out by float plane from Yellowknife in...
Principal Investigator:Good, Ron Licenced Year(s):
The survey will be carried out along two lines near the Mallik L-38 drill site, with phones at 3 m spacings. A number of energy sources will be tried. These will include an 8 gauge "Buffalo" gun, an elastic accelerated weight drop, a mini-vib system, and a hammer and plate. The Buffalo gun will require holes drilled every 3 m, its 500 grain 8 gauge shells are fired at 1 metre depth and have no im...
Principal Investigator:Poniatowski, Brian Licenced Year(s):
The community monitor will carry out monitoring of wildlife, principally caribou, which are of great importance to the Lutselk'e First Nation. This will be done by directly observing their numbers, sex of animals (if this can be determined), age, condition, movements and behaviour in relation to Kennedy Lake camp and to specific worksites, such as sites where drilling or till sampling are being ca...

At approximately forty (40) locations along the 600-km-long winter road, sensors will be lowered through small holes drilled through the lake ice onto the lake bottom. These sensors will measure time variations of the Earth's natural electric field, and these variations will be recorded by devices on the lake shores. The recordings at each locations will take 1-3 weeks, after which all equipment...
Principal Investigator:Stubley, Mike Licenced Year(s):
The researchers will examine, document, and sample surface outcrops in the study area. The information will be recorded on a map which will summarize the geological rock-types and mineral resources of the area. The researchers will camp at two separate sites during the field season. The work will consist primarily of daily walks from wherever they can get their inflatable boat. Airplane suppor...
Principal Investigator:Dixon, James Licenced Year(s):
Specific sites will be visited using daily helicopter flights based out of Inuvik. Site visits will last from 15 minutes to several hours and at each site the rocks will be identified and described, the vertical arrangements of rocks will be measured and noted, and samples (about fist-sized) will be taken where deemed necessary. Samples will be taken to Calgary where they will be used either to ...
