Principal Investigator:Anglin, C.D. Licenced Year(s):
The researcher will examine and sample mineral showings on Cornwallis, Little Cornwallis and Bathurst Islands. The areas will be mapped (geological) and samples of other rocks will be collected in order to determine their potential for additional minealization. The researcher will assess the mineral and energy resource potential of the Northern Bathurst Island proposed national park area on behal...
Principal Investigator:Stubley, Michael Licenced Year(s):19961995
The research team will exmaine, document and sample surface outcrops in the study area. The information will be recorded on a map which will summarize the geological rock-types and mineral resources of the area....
Principal Investigator:Beauchamp, Benoit Licenced Year(s):
Field work consists of measuring stratigraphic sections on Northwestern Ellesmere Island, using a 1.5 m Jacob's Staff. Samples for lithology, paleontology and geochemistry will be taken at interval. This will be done to gain an understanding of the stratigraphic relationships of the Carboniferous & Permian strata in the Sverdrup basin and to evaluate the resource potential (oil, gas, minerals) of...
Principal Investigator:Harrison, J. Christopher Licenced Year(s):
The field program is intended to provide data in order to better understand the bedrock of the Canadian landmass as well as to provide basic information that can be used in land use studies, education, environmental impact analysis and resource evaluation. Data, measurements and samples will be collected on the different types of rocks found in the Vendom and Strathcona Fiord areas. The results w...
Principal Investigator:Brand, Uwe Licenced Year(s):
The research will involve a detailed assessment of the make- up of Devonian rocks found on Bathurst, Helena, Cameron and Byam Martin Islands over a three-year period. The potential for oil, gas and/or mineral deposits in the Devonian strata will be assessed, but the major emphasis of the research will be on investigating the strata's geochemical, paleontological and sedimentological characteristi...
Principal Investigator:Peterson, Tony D. Licenced Year(s):
The research is part of a program focussed on understanding the Proterozoic intraplate tectonics of the Churchill Province. Petrological studies of the strongly potassic volcanic rocks of the Baker Lake Group are intended to assess their potential as diamond source rocks and to investigate the history of their mantle source regions....
Principal Investigator:Hills, L.V. Licenced Year(s):19931992
The Researchers will study the Kanguk Formation which is the last major marine transgression into the Sverdrup Basin. They will establish the age and environment in which the sediments were deposited. Organic matter will be analyzed to determine the petroleum generation potential of the formation....
Principal Investigator:Jones, Timothy Licenced Year(s):
The Research team will continue work begun in 1990 to carry out a resource evaluation of the Bluenose Lake area. A national park has been proposed for the area. Before land can be set aside as a park reserve an assessment of non-renewable (oil, gas, minerals) resource potential is required....
Principal Investigator:Taylor, K. Licenced Year(s):
To prepare 26-34 Land Use Information maps at a scale of 1:250,000, covering the region between Great Bear Lake and the Arctic Coast and Banks Island. Maps will contain data on: wildlife resources, recreation and tourism considerations, forest resources, development areas, historical sites, archaelological sites, water climate and social/economic information....
