Mineralogy, Geochemistry, and Fluid Inclusions of the Caribou Lake Layered Mafic-Ultramafic Intrusion
Principal Investigator: Neyedley, Kevin
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The purpose of the study is to examine the rocks near Blachford lake lodge to gain a better understanding of how they formed and why there are there. Initial mapping has shown that they are unusual with more iron and nickel in them than would be normally expected and we would like to look at them to better understand their history. There have been exploration companies interested in these rocks an...


Establishing a watershed framework for assessing cumulative impacts of development
Principal Investigator: Chin, Krista
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: Objective 1: Build a partnership between government, communities, regulators and researchers to develop a watershed-based cumulative impact study in areas of oil and gas exploration in the Sahtu region. The Sahtu Renewable Resource Board (SRRB) can play an important coordinating role in bringing partners together and working with the communities to determine appropriate engagement in the projec...


A Multi-scale Assessment of Cumulative Impacts in the Northern Mackenzie Basin
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: This project has three main objectives: Objective 1: To use satellite imagery (Landsat, QuickBird, InSAR, etc.) to document the rate and extent of landscape change (slumps, subsidence, vegetation change, etc.) in the northern Mackenzie Basin. To quantify landscape disturbances and vegetation regeneration patterns since 1985 Landsat satellite images will be obtained, that will provide refle...


The cumulative impacts of rapid environmental change in the northwestern NWT: Investigating the impacts of mega-slump disturbances on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in the lower Peel watershed, NW
Principal Investigator: Lacelle, Denis
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: This is a multidisciplinary project involving communities, governments and academic researchers. The goals are to : 1) inventory and track broad scale changes in landscape disturbances; 2) determine the impacts of natural and anthropogenic disturbances on the physical and chemical characteristics and ecology of streams and rivers; 3) determine disturbance thresholds relevant to the health of strea...


South Rae, NWT Aeromagnetic Survey
Principal Investigator: Miles, Warner F.
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011
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 provi...


Geology of the Redstone Copperbelt
Principal Investigator: Milton, Jack E
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010
Summary: 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 ...


GEM Great Bear magmatic zone/iron oxide copper-gold deposit project
Principal Investigator: Corriveau, Louise
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of the Great Bear/IOCG geoscience research and mapping project are to: • develop a modern geological, crustal architecture and exploration framework for polymetallic iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposit-type mineralizing systems in the Great Bear magmatic zone and new exploration methods for IOCG deposits in glaciated terrains; • validate deposit-type model for known mineral occu...


Geological Fieldwork in Mackenzie Plain and Adjacent Mountains.
Principal Investigator: MacNaughton, Robert B.
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of this study are: • 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. • To encourage new and more effective exploration for oil and gas that will l...


Sahtu Gravity Survey, 2006
Principal Investigator: Millman, Peter M
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: Devon Canada’s Sahtu Gravity Survey, 2006 has been designed in an effort to prioritize the seismic data acquisition (seismic lines) for a joint Talisman-Devon seismic program proposed within the project area during the winter of 2006-07. The gravity survey is a reconnaissance tool that allows geophysical data to be acquired over a large area in a short amount of time, and upon processing and inte...


Regional Terrain Hazards Mapping
Principal Investigator: Couture, Réjean
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The goal of this project is to compile updated baseline information/knowledge on the types, regional distribution, and controls (e.g. forests fires, climate change) of landslides. The main objectives of the field reconnaissance at landslide sites are six-fold: 1) to validate previous data collected through air photo interpretation and remote sensing techniques; 2) to carry out detailed mapping at ...
