Principal Investigator:Ootes, Luke Licenced Year(s):
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...

Snare River project is in the Slave Structural Province of the Northwest Territories. Geological data on the area is sparse and poorly understood. This mapping project will define the structural, metamorphic, lithological and geochemical bedrock characteristics of area, providing an up-dated geological data base. As well, examination of the tectonometamorphic evolution of part of the area will ...
Principal Investigator:Cairn, Scott Licenced Year(s):
A field camp will be flown out from Yellowknife in early June 2000. A tent camp will be established and researchers will made daily walks, noting the details of the rocks they are walking on. Notes will be recorded in a computer database. At times 1-5kg samples of rocks will be taken for further examination in a laboratory giving information on the composition of the rock, what has happened to ...
Principal Investigator:Perks, Matthew Licenced Year(s):1996
The researchers will achieve detailed mapping of granite- metasediment contacts by relying on detailed documentation of mineral asseblages, textures, metamorphic grade, and relative timing of the meta-sedimentary and meta-igneous rocks in the MacNaughton Lake area. Isotope U-Pb studies of granite and metasediment minerals will be used to constrain the absolute timing of intrusion and metamorphism....
Principal Investigator:Farquhar, James Licenced Year(s):
We will be examining the metamorphic rocks (which belong to the geologic area termed the Slave Province) located near Ghost Lake. The information and samples collected will help to determine the types of geological events and processes which created the metamorphic rocks of the region....
