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 ...


City of Yellowknife Gold Project
Principal Investigator: Campbell, Joseph W
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014
Summary: Follow-up on exploration activity associated with MVLWB land use permit MV2014C0005 on Terrax Minerals Inc. City of Yellowknife Gold Project. Work would include initial environmental baseline work, and expansion of research programs to establish sufficient study for possible future Environmental Impact Assessment of potential mine development if exploration activities are successful. Work will ...


De Beers - Gahcho Kué 2014 Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Chisholm, Veronica
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of the proposed studies is to continue to describe the existing environment, and obtain information once Project activities commence to determine potential project effects. The proposed studies will include the collection of air quality, geochemistry, hydrology, water and sediment quality, and fish and aquatic resources, dustfall, vegetation and soil information. The studies are...


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...


Examination of carbonate mounds on Prince Patrick Island, NWT
Principal Investigator: Grasby, Stephen
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: In the summer of 2005, the researchers wish to visit two locations on Prince Patrick Island to examine some unusual rock formations referred to as cold-water seep mounds in order to better understand how they were formed. The work will consist of a 2-pe...


The Snare River Mapping Project: parts of NTS 85O and 85N
Principal Investigator: Jackson, Valerie A
Licenced Year(s): 2002 2001 2000
Summary: The Snare River mapping project will define the structural, metamorphic, lithographical and geochemical bedrock characteristics of the area, providing an up-dated geological data base. The mapping team will be flown out by float plane from Yellowknife in...


Water Quality in the Richardson Mountain catchments
Principal Investigator: CLARK, Ian D.
Licenced Year(s): 1997
Summary: The objectives of this research are to study the chemistry of the groundwaters that flow into the Little Fish River near the Cache Creek overwintering hole. The role of carbonate rocks is important as there is a lot of subsurface flow in this rock type. The presence of the aufeis (winter icing) on Cache Creek is a sign of groundwater flow, and is one of the reasons that this site was chosen. We...


Geological Mapping 95 C/8 - South Kotaneelee Anticline and 95 B/5 and 12.
Principal Investigator: Currie, Lisel
Licenced Year(s): 1997
Summary: The purpose of the study is to conduct standard 1:50 000 geological mapping as per mandate of the Geological Survey of Canada. This will be in the central Kotaneelee Range. This will involve daily long distance traverse to describe the rocks across the area. Most parts of the area will be visited only once. The research team will be dropped off and picked up by helicopter. During the day they ...


Sampling of water from the Mackenzie River and some of its principal tributaries
Principal Investigator: Gariepy, Clement
Licenced Year(s): 1996
Summary: All transportation will be done using rental vehicles (usually locally). Water sampling will be done out of rental boats (typically zodiac-type) and equipment (light pumps manually operated); water will be filtered on site, particles in suspension will be carried back for analysis. This will typically be 50-100 milligrams. Itinerary includes: Inuvik, Ft. Providence, Yelllowknife....


Geology of High Lake Greenstone Belt
Principal Investigator: Henderson, J.R.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The researchers will produce a geological map showing the distribution of different types of rock formations. Rocks will be collected for chemical analysis in order to better understand how they formed and to see if they contain metallic minerals....
