Geochemical comparison from three Archean greenstone belts across the Slave craton.
Principal Investigator: Williams, Benjamin P
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: Through detailed mapping, select transects, and comprehensive sampling, a geochemical comparison of three Archean volcanic belts in the Slave craton (Northwest Territories) will help advance the knowledge of stratigraphy, and magmatic evolution within each belt. Detailed Mapping: traversing (walking) over bedrock outcrops, examining lithology’s, notes and picture taking, and sample collecting....


Thematic structural geological bedrock mapping project
Principal Investigator: Bleeker, Wouter
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994
Summary: 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....


Archean Felsic Volcanic Complex Near Regan Lake, District of Mackenzie, NWT
Principal Investigator: Lambert, M.B.
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: The researcher will conduct detailed mapping of the area. The researcher will traverse by foot and a small boat on the river systems. In the laboratory, the chemistry and radiometric age of the volcanic rocks units will be examined in order to determine the relationship of the mineral deposits to this volcano....


Geological mapping of the Avialik River volcanic belt
Principal Investigator: Relf, Carolyn
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: In this ongoing study, the researcher will examine the nature of rocks found in the volcanic belt of the Avialik River area. This work will help to determine the amount of base metals and precious metals found in this belt of rocks. In addition, the movement of rocks (in the past) along a fault line will be examined. Geological mapping (field work) will be done in the summer while analyses of t...


Early Proterozoic Volcanism of the Baker Lake Group, District of Keewatin
Principal Investigator: Peterson, Tony D.
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: 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....


Geology of Takijuq Greenstone Belt
Principal Investigator: Gebert, James
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The Researchers will carry out geological bedrock mapping of a portion of an ancient volcanic belt. The purpose of the project is to produce a 1:15,000 scale geology map of the study area....


Volcanic Rocks of the Belcher Islands
Principal Investigator: Francis, Don
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher and his team will carry out fieldwork which includes geological mapping and the collection of approximately 200 fist-sized rock samples for chemical analysis at McGill University. This work is a part of a three year research project which is designed to evaluate the meteoritic origin of the Hudson Bay Arc....


Geochronology and petrogenesis of the Archean Kaminak Lake Terrane
Principal Investigator: Cavell, Patricia A.
Licenced Year(s): 1988
Summary: to determine ages of igneous rock types in the Kaminak Lake region; to determine the Nd, Sr and Pb isotopic composition of the mantle source of the carbonatite intrusion; to deduce a source region and degree of crustal contamination of volcanic (extrusive) and granodioritic (intrusive) host rocks....


Joint Services Expedition to Borup Fiord, Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Hankinson, Flt. LT. K.W.
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1988
Summary: to classify breeding and feeding habitats of snow buntings, wading birds and Arctic hares; use pitfall traps to collect insects; study growth, reproduction and diet of Arctic char; collect bryophytes; map igneous rocks of Esayoo formation; record and map any archaeological sites; record weather observations; collect animal and plant material for carbon isotope ratio analysis and assessment of food...


The Marginal Rocks of the Muskox Intrusion
Principal Investigator: Francis, Don
Licenced Year(s): 1988 1987
Summary: To study the marginal rocks of the Muskox Layered Intrusion by mapping and collecting 100 fist-sized rock samples for chemical analysis along the eastern margin of the intrusion from Stanbridge Lake to the Coppermine River; determine the composition of the parental magma of the intrusion and to characterize the process of magma crystallization along the walls of the intrusion; undertake a reconnai...
