Geochemical comparison from three Archean greenstone belts across the Slave craton.
Principal Investigator: Williams, Benjamin P
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: Through detailed mapping, select transects, and comprehensive sampling, a geochemical comparison of three Archean volcanic belts in the Slave craton (Northwest Territories) will help advance the knowledge of stratigraphy, and magmatic evolution within each belt. Detailed Mapping: traversing (walking) over bedrock outcrops, examining lithology’s, notes and picture taking, and sample collecting....


Southern Bear Province Geological Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Jackson, Valerie A
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The project is aimed at obtaining a better understanding of the bedrock geology and mineral potential of the South Bear area. Southern Bear project area is in the Bear Structural Province of the Northwest Territories centred approximately 240 km north-northwest of Yellowknife. Geological data on the area is sparse and limited to 1:250 000 regional mapping by the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC...


2006 Great Bear River Seismic Test Program in the Sahtu Settlement Area - Tulita District
Principal Investigator: Hawkins, Jim R.
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The objective of the program is to collect information regarding the surficial geology of the Great Bear River at the location of the proposed pipeline watercourse crossing. This information will be used to determine the depth to bedrock as part of the information for a river crossing design, and for use in the design of a proposed horizontal directional drill (HDD) crossing at this location. S...


Snowbird Lake Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Martel, Edith
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: The mapping team (5-6 researchers) will be flown out by floatplane from Yellowknife in early June and a camp will be established. Island campsites are preferred as a deterrent against bear encounters. With the aid of zodiac-style inflatable boats, the re...


Wecho River Geological Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Ootes, Luke
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of this mapping project is to define the structural, metamorphic, lithological and geochemical bedrock characteristics of the area, and provide this information in an updated geological database. This is the second year of a two-year projec...


Paleoecology of Mercy Bay Reefs, Frasnian, Banks Island, NWT
Principal Investigator: Copper, Paul
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: The current study will re-examine the detailed structure, sedimentology, and paleoecology of the Devonian patch reefs of Mercy Bay, Banks Island, NWT. Transportation by fixed-wing aircraft to Polar Bear cabin near Castel Bay will be followed by helicopte...

Summary: The current study will re-examine the detailed structure, sedimentology, and paleoecology of the Devonian patch reefs of Mercy Bay, Banks Island, NWT. Transportation by fixed-wing aircraft to Polar Bear cabin near Castel Bay will be followed by helicopte...


Sedimentology and Stratigraphy of Upper Devonian Strata around Hay River, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: MacNeil, Alex
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002
Summary: To study the development of Devonian reefs, as exposed in areas and roadcuts between Hay River and Fort Simpson. This is to better understand the different types of reefs that grew in the area 370 million years ago, and how they formed large bodies of li...


The Snare River Mapping Project: parts of NTS 85O and 85N
Principal Investigator: Jackson, Valerie A
Licenced Year(s): 2002 2001 2000
Summary: 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...


Carbonate-Hosted Lead-Zinc (Mississippi Valley Type) Occurrences in Northern Alberta and Southern Northwest Territories.
Principal Investigator: Turner, William
Licenced Year(s): 2002 2001
Summary: Transport of the research team to sites will be by truck, contingent on road access. Tent camps will be established for housing in the field. The camp will consist of 2 researchers, for the months of August and September, with possible sporadic visits by other researchers throughout the summer. Field activities will involve examining and documenting lead-zinc occurences, and collecting lead-zi...
