Mackenzie Mountains bedrock mapping and stratigraphic studies
Principal Investigator: MacNaughton, Robert B.
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective of this research is to improve the public understanding of bedrock geology of two regions of the Mackenzie Mountains, including folding and faulting, stratigraphic relationships, tectonic history, and economic mineralogy. This objective includes sharing geoscience information with all interested parties through the production and publication of bedrock geology maps and reports on the...


Geological Fieldwork in Mackenzie Plain and Adjacent Mountains.
Principal Investigator: MacNaughton, Robert B.
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The goal of this project is to increase the geoscience knowledge of the NWT, particularly around Norman Wells and Tulita, and in the surrounding mountains, to provide public geoscience information to all stakeholders through the production of bedrock geology maps and related reports on petroleum potential, and to encourage new and more effective exploration for oil and gas that will lead to social...


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...


Minto Inlier, NWT Aeromagnetic Survey
Principal Investigator: Miles, Warner F.
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: The objective of this airborne survey is to acquire high-resolution aeromagnetic data. Aeromagnetic surveys measure magnetic properties of bedrock and are one of the tools used in geological mapping. The bedrock may contain mineral deposits, such as gold, copper, lead, zinc, and diamonds. Understanding the geology will help geologists map the area, assist mineral exploration activities, and pro...


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...


Regional Geoscience Studies and Petroleum Potential of the Peel Plateau and Plain, Northwest Territories & Yukon
Principal Investigator: Zantvoort, Willem
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005
Summary: Peel Plateau and Plain, an area with hydrocarbon potential spanning the NWT-Yukon border, lies southwest of the Mackenzie River, north of the Mackenzie Mountains, and east of the Richardson Mountains. A primary objective of this project is to expand geoscience knowledge to aid in informed land use decisions, as well as stimulate petroleum exploration, industry investment, and economic development ...


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...


ConocoPhillips Canada (North) Limited 2006 LiDAR Survey
Principal Investigator: Kim, Jae
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of the proposed survey is to obtain a high resolution, highly accurate, three-dimensional topographic image of the study area. The data collected from the survey will be used to assist in planning for construction of winter and all-season roads and airstrip for the proposed Parsons Lake natural gas field development program. Terra Remote Sensing Inc. has been contracted to perform th...


Surficial mapping southern Mackenzie Valley
Principal Investigator: Duk-Rodkin, Alejandra ADR
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This project involves surficial geology mapping of unmapped areas of NTS 95 G, H, and I, (61ºN to 63ºN and 120ºW to 124ºW) to assess granular resources, slope instability (landslide occurrence and potential) due to instability of the active layer, forest fires, erosion, and other factors, and regional geochemical analysis of till and gravel samples. The GSC will be working to improve our under...


Massive Ice in Granular Deposits - Shield Sites
Principal Investigator: De Pascale, Greg P
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: Sand, gravel and crushed stone are valuable geological resources, collectively known as aggregates. They are essential bed, foundation and building materials. The presence of massive ice in aggregate deposits results in a series of resource management problems, particularly for the oil industry and its contractors who rely on local granular deposits as building material. From an environmental pers...
