The overarching objective of the project is to understand the nature of the Paleoproterozoic western boundary of the Slave craton for both academic and economic reasons. Two people will fly out by float plane from Yellowknife and will join the camp previ...

The research team will resume mapping bedrock and surficial geology at 1:50,000 and 1:250,000 scales, continuing a project begun in the summer of 2000. The base of operations will be either at Fort Liard, or at an existing base camp on the southeastern La Biche River. Fly camps will be accessed by helicopter. Fly camps will be visited by 2-4 crew members for about 1 week. From the fly camps the ...

The objective of the study is to investigate the structure and composition of the earth's crust and upper mantle to depths greater than 60 km in northern British Columbia, NWT and BC. At eight locations along NWT hwy. 7, sensors will be lowered into small (1 m long x 25 cm wide x 25cm deep) holes dug in the ground . These sensors will measure the time variations of the Earth's natural electrical ...

The purpose of this study is to investigate the structure and composition of the Earth's crust and upper portion of the earth's crust and upper mantle to depths greater than 200km from sites in the Lac de Gras area. Seismometers will be deployed within two existent mine camps for at least one year. These sensors will record distant earthquakes. Well established technology will be used and once dep...

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...
