Principal Investigator:Hulse, Peter Licenced Year(s):
The main objective of our research is to characterize the nature and origin (provenance) of sedimentary rocks which were deposited in the Sverdrup Basin between the Late Palaeozoic and Cenozoic (ranging from around 350 million years to 40 million years ago). The Sverdrup Basin is a succession of sedimentary rocks, which were deposited in an ancient ocean, which largely covered what are today the C...
Principal Investigator:Ootes, Luke Licenced Year(s):
The goal of this research is to study select bedrock exposures of sedimentary rocks and determine their age and provenance (source). This is completed by walking and looking/documenting rocks (mapping) and in some places collecting fist-sized rocks samples with a small hammer. These samples are processed at the University of Alberta.
To test the hypothesis, a combination of field observations b...
Principal Investigator:Pecoits, Ernesto Licenced Year(s):
By means of geochemical data on banded iron formation (BIF), and associated volcanic and sedimentary rocks the main objectives of this study are:
(1) to delineate the source (continental, hydrothermal) of silica and iron in BIF,
(2) to make inferences about the seawater from which these rocks are deposited in, and
(3) to evaluate the implications for early life on Earth.
This study wil...
Principal Investigator:Turner, Elizabeth C Licenced Year(s):
This project seeks to understand the ancient marine environments recorded in these rocks, and thereby to interpret this poorly known, dramatic time in North America’s tectonic evolution. The areas addressed will be those that were briefly described in 1993: 1 location is in Yukon Territory (YT) and 2 are in Northwest Territories (NWT). This work will complement licensed research currently under wa...
Principal Investigator:Guest, Bernard Licenced Year(s):
The goal of this project is to enhance Canada's capacity in the development and application of new methodologies to directly contribute to the development of integrated models of sedimentary basin development and evolution that will inform and guide oil and gas exploration in northern Canada, especially in the three Territories.
This summer, rock samples will be collected from the MacKenzie del...

The researchers will preform daily geological traverses by foot and by boat with occassional fixed wing support. Proposed products of this project includes geological compilation maps, a collection of geochemical, geochronological, petrological and structural rock samples and computerized data....
Principal Investigator:Bursey, Terry Lee Licenced Year(s):
The researcher and his team will study several well-exposed areas of sedimentary stata of Archean age within the Slave Province, Northwest Territories, in order to evaluate criteria for correlation and depositional environments....
Principal Investigator:Dixon, O.A. Licenced Year(s):1993
In the Arctic Islands, the research will study sedimentary rocks and fossils that were formed more than 400 million years ago in warm tropical seas. It is hoped the study will assist in interpreting ancient environments in more detail, for example suggesting water depths, temperatures and climate....
Principal Investigator:Brand, Uwe Licenced Year(s):1993
The Researchers will study sedimentary rocks and fossils that were formed more than 350 million years ago in warm tropical seas. The study helps to interpret the ancient environments and will outline which rock units were most favourable to generating and hosting economic mineral deposits....
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....
