Slave Province Surficial Geology and Permafrost Study
Principal Investigator: Elliott, Barrett R
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2015
Summary: The objectives of the research are to generate new surficial geology maps and surficial geological studies covering approximately 5 50k National Topographic System (NTS) sheets, to install an new permafrost monitoring network at the treeline transition as well as to generate case studies of using small soil samples to detect a buried kimberlite and using passive geophysics equipment (measures eart...


Understanding regional variability in soil geochemistry in an area impacted by legacy industrial activity
Principal Investigator: Oliver, Jonathon
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The specific objectives of this research are: 1) to investigate concentrations of arsenic and other elements in regional soils to gain a better understanding of regional baseline soil geochemistry; 2) to determine speciation of arsenic in selected soils from the region with elevated concentrations to determine whether arsenic in soils is from a natural geologic source or is derived from past indus...


South Rae Project
Principal Investigator: Pehrsson, Sally J
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2012
Summary: This work is part of NRCan’s Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Program, designed to upgrade the geoscience knowledge base in Canada’s North to modern standards. A team of 10-15 scientists set up a temporary camp in the area of interest. Float planes, helicopter and boats are used to access remote areas. The scientists walk on the land and make observations, take notes and draw sketches. Small...
