Beaulieu River Belt Collaborative VMS Project
Principal Investigator: Knox, Bernadette
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objectives of this project are to update and increase the understanding of the geological history of an area along the Beaulieu River. The work will be conducted mostly on foot with access to the shore provided by canoe and zodiac boat. Notes on the geology will be taken and entered into a database. Holes up to 1 m in depth will be dug to make observations and take samples of the till, the ...


South Rae Project
Principal Investigator: Pehrsson, Sally J
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2012
Summary: This work is part of NRCan’s Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Program, designed to upgrade the geoscience knowledge base in Canada’s North to modern standards. A team of 10-15 scientists set up a temporary camp in the area of interest. Float planes, helicopter and boats are used to access remote areas. The scientists walk on the land and make observations, take notes and draw sketches. Small...


Mackenzie craton
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objective is to make diamond exploration more efficient in remote northern regions in order to encourage further investments by multi-national diamond exploration companies. Also to enable local communities to better assess their natural resource potential. The research team will record earthquake waves at several widely-spaced locations in the NWT in order to map deep (100-300 km depths) s...


Early Neoproterozoic Stratigraphy of the Mackenzie Mountains
Principal Investigator: Halverson, Galen P
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2011
Summary: The objectives are to collect high quality and high resolution stratigraphic and sedimentological data in the field, along with accompanying samples for geochemical and petrological analysis. At the same time, all field areas in which the group works will be mapped in detail. The field party will separate into two groups. One group will be focused on logging stratigraphic sections and sampling...


Hydrothermal event recognition and vectoring to SEDEX ore system in shale basins, Yukon and NWT
Principal Investigator: Paradis, Suzanne
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to identify some proximal (close) and distal (at a distance) mineralogical and chemical elements that will indicate that rocks in a sedimentary basin are likely or not to be rich in metals. To achieve the objectives, preliminary field work will continue during the summer months of July and August of 2013 and 2014. The field work consists of: - fam...


Blatchford Lake, NT Airborne Gravity Gradiometry Survey
Principal Investigator: Miles, Warner F.
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objective of the airborne survey is to acquire high-resolution airborne gravity gradient and magnetic data. Airborne gravity gradiometry surveys measure small variations in the rate of change of the gravity field due to lateral variations in the mass and density of underlying bedrock. Aeromagnetic surveys measure magnetic properties of bedrock and are one of the tools used in geological mapp...


Darnley Bay Resources Ltd. 2010 - 2012 Field Program
Principal Investigator: Reford, Stephen
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010 2008
Summary: The objective of the Darnley Bay Resources (DBR) Ltd. 2010 - 2012 Field Program is to collect additional information on the Darnley Bay gravity anomaly and to assess kimberlite pipe targets. Six field programs have been proposed (geological prospecting and sampling, claim staking, ground geophysical surveys, bathymetric surveys and two drilling programs) and data collected will aid in DBR's interp...


Geology and Resource Potential of Northwest Victoria Island
Principal Investigator: Rainbird, Robert H
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: The objective of the project is to better understand the geology of the region through collection and analysis of rock specimens and regional geological mapping. This year the researchers would like to collect hand specimens of rocks for future studies and to look for areas where more detailed studies can be done in the future. Understanding the geology will help geologists map the area, assist m...


Sekwi Mountain Project
Principal Investigator: Martel, Edith
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The objectives of the Sekwi Mountain project are: (1) Provide an updated geological database for a segment of the Mackenzie Mountains; (2) Assess the mineral potential of the area; (3) Assess the hydrocarbon (oil and gas, coal) potential of the area; (4) Provide tectonic model for the assembly of the Mackenzie Mountains; (5) Produce an user-friendly guide to the geology of the Canol Heritage Trail...


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...
