This research seeks to resolve the nature and potential source of kimberlite (diamond) indicator minerals, and to improve understanding of the geological history of Banks Island, and how this relates to off-shore geology and regional hydrocarbon systems.
For the kimberlite (diamond) indicator mineral study, the research team will take up to 100 small (10-20 kg) samples of stream sediments and v...

, in accordance to the EISC RECOMMENDATIONS in late October 2007. Fieldwork is being licenced confined to March-April 2008.
The purpose of this project is to conduct Global Positioning Satellite (GPS)-based gradiometer magnetometer surveys, by JVX on behalf of Diadem. Within the mineral claims, 28 potential targets have been identified in priority sequence to be surveyed. The number of surveys ...

The research team will be transported to Long Lake by aircraft, and will travel by truck on the mine site. Sample collection will be carried out using a motorized boat. Water and phytoplankton samples will be collected using a 10 L Go-Flo water sampler. Zooplankton samples will be collected using a zooplankton net. There are three taxa of freshwater zooplankton that may be collected from Long ...

If future feasibility studies determine that a mine should be developed for access to the diamondiferous kimberlite underlying Gahcho KuÚ, the lake will be dyked and partially drained as has been the case at other diamond properties in the NWT. As such, the Fisheries Act requires compensation for lost fish productivity and lost habitat. To determine the amount of compensation DeBeers Canada...

This is a one year project designed to update the present geology of the northern part of Lac De Gras (last mapped in the 1940's). The study will involve three weeks of field work with limited helicopter support. The researchers will collaborate with P. Thompson of Thompson of the GSC (Providence Lake) and BHP-Utah, who are investigating their claims in the area....

The Researcher and team will conduct a geological investigation of kimberlites on the NE side of Somerset Island. They will collect samples of Somerset Island kimberlites to provide information concerning their timing, origin and isotopic evolution. The data will be added to a North American database for a better understanding of the isotopic nature of the Earth's mantle on a global scale....
