Principal Investigator:Pecoits, Ernesto Licenced Year(s):
By means of geochemical data on banded iron formation (BIF), and associated volcanic and sedimentary rocks the main objectives of this study are:
(1) to delineate the source (continental, hydrothermal) of silica and iron in BIF,
(2) to make inferences about the seawater from which these rocks are deposited in, and
(3) to evaluate the implications for early life on Earth.
This study wil...

The objectives of the CaHiGeo project are to sample paleogene rocks for sedimentological and stratigraphical analysis and dating; to sample the underlying rocks for correlation with equivalent formations in Northern Yukon and dating; and to measure the possible deformation of the paleogene rocks at the inferred location of sealed faults (Eskimo Lake Fault Zone).
The methods used in the field fo...

The objective of this study is to improve understanding of transportation and deposition of heavy minerals in surficial materials (till and esker systems). The study area is approximately 60 x 100 km, is located east of Thaydene Nene National Park, and adjacent to the Quaternary ice divide.
Work on the ground, over a 2 week period, will involve sample collection of surficial materials in order...
Principal Investigator:Mumford, Thomas R. Licenced Year(s):
With increasing activity at the Nechalacho Rare Earth Element Deposit a better geological understanding of the setting of the mineral deposit is required. This study is fundamentally concerned with how and why the deposit exists. This is achieved by studying the entire Blachford Lake intrusive suite (>300 km2), the igneous system which generated the deposit. From this, a petrogenetic framework wil...
Principal Investigator:Milton, Jack E Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this research project is to further the knowledge of the geology of the Redstone Copperbelt - an area of copper deposits within the Mackenzie Mountains. This will lead to a clearer understanding of the science behind the formation of copper deposits. This information can be utilized by environmental and exploration companies to provide baseline data on the distribution of copper ...

The 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 Geologica...

The purpose of this project is to develop exploration guidelines for emeralds in the NWT. We propose to spend July 2002 in the Lened area, where we will produce detailed geological maps and collect samples for laboratory analysis (whole-rock chemistry, e...
Principal Investigator:Hubert, Ben Licenced Year(s):
The purposes of these studies are to update the environmental baseline data set for the Izok Project in preparation for submitting a project proposal for developing the orebody at Izok Lake. This study focuses on a mineral deposit in Nunavut. The project...
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....
