Principal Investigator:Siddorn, James Licenced Year(s):
All research to be conducted, either underground or on the surface, will be carried out at the Giant and Con mine sites in Yellowknife. Data on the origination of structural features (faults, foliations, folds, ect.) will be measured with a compass clinometer. Samples (< 10cm in diameter) will be taken of certain rock types which display interesting small scale structures....
Principal Investigator:Ootes, Luke Licenced Year(s):
The research team will be based out of Yellowknife. Travel to the Crestaurum Mine site will be by road; travel on site will be by foot. Detailed geological mapping will be carried out by gathering fist-sized samples of rock with a hammer, or rock saw. Both mineralized (ore-bearing) and un-mineralized samples will be collected. Samples will then be returned to the laboratory for further, detail...
Principal Investigator:Whitney, Candace Licenced Year(s):
The Coppermine River basin has significant mineral resources including diamonds as well as base and precious metals. In the early 1990s, the Slave Geological Province experienced a dramatic increase in mining activity when diamonds were discovered in the middle of the West Kitikmeot/Slave area at Lac de Gras. Northern ecological systems are particularly at risk to impacts of mining and other land...

Tthe objective of this study is to continue research examining the hydrological and energy budget of small arctic esker lake basin during the spring melt period. The intent of this research is to understand the relationship between the energy budget and changes in soil moisture, rates of evapotranspiration, and changes in water discharge from a small tundra basin underlain by permafrost. Transpo...
Principal Investigator:Fletcher, W.K. Licenced Year(s):
The research will involve the collection of soil, lake sediments and waters. Soil and lake sediments will be sieved to give different size fractions (sand, silt, clay, etc.) and each fraction analyzed for gold to determine which size fraction is best to use in gold exploration....
Principal Investigator:Falck, Hendrik Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher and his assistant will visit all known gold and mineral resource occurances in the Yellowknife area. The area immediately around the showing will be mapped as to rock types, structures and mineral resources. Samples are returned to town and analyzed for chemcials and minerals....
