Paleoproterozoic tectonometamorphic architecture of the south Rae craton
Principal Investigator: Thiessen, Eric
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The project goals are to visit an area of known exposed bedrock in southeastern Northwest Territories to produce a detailed geological map documenting rock type, structure, and metamorphic style. This work requires geological mapping and rock sample collection. A field camp consisting of single person tents will be set up as a low impact staging area for mapping. Mapping will be conducted by f...


Stratigraphy of the Hyland Group, Selwyn Mountains
Principal Investigator: Turner, Elizabeth C
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: 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...


Magnetotelluric survey in northern British Columbia and the Yukon
Principal Investigator: Jones, Alan
Licenced Year(s): 1999
Summary: The objective of the study is to investigate the structure and composition of the earth's crust and upper mantle to depths greater than 60 km in northern British Columbia, NWT and BC. At eight locations along NWT hwy. 7, sensors will be lowered into small (1 m long x 25 cm wide x 25cm deep) holes dug in the ground . These sensors will measure the time variations of the Earth's natural electrical ...


Magnetotelluric Studies along the Lupin Mine winter road - Phase II
Principal Investigator: Jones, Alan
Licenced Year(s): 1999 1998
Summary: The objective of the study is to investigate the structure and composition of the earth's crust and upper mantle to depths greater than 200km along the Lupin Mine winter road east from Yellowknife to Contwoyto Lake. At approximately 20-25 locations along the 600 km winter road, sensors will be lowered through small holes drilled through the ice onto lake bottoms. These sensors will measure the tim...


Thematic Structural Studies in the Slave Province
Principal Investigator: Bleeker, Wouter
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994
Summary: Researchers will conduct routine geological research out of small mobile camps by means of traverse and boat work. The researchers will observe and describe bedrock geology at a large number of sites. This will be done in order to gain an understanding of the geological and tectonic history of the Slave structural province....


Licence #5136
Principal Investigator: Lambert, Anthony
Licenced Year(s): 1985
Summary: To measure crustal deformation in North America leading to a better understanding of earthquakes and plate tectonics. Measurements will be made by the technique of long-baseline interferometry using a mobile radio telescope. (Continued from last year.)...


Licence #4075
Principal Investigator: Brown, Malcolm P.
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: A study of lake quaternary glacio-lacustrine sediments and abandoned lake shorelines on northeast Ellesmere Island, including surveying and mapping the uppermost lake shorelines to establish the nature of isostatic uplift in the area. Studying the exposed lake sediments and collecting organic material for dating purposes....


Licence #4071
Principal Investigator: Lambert, Anthony
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: To measure crustal deformation in North America leading to a better understanding of earthquakes and plate tectonics. Measurements will be made by the technique of long-baseline interferometry using a mobile radio telescope....
