Principal Investigator:Williams, Benjamin P Licenced Year(s):
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....
Principal Investigator:Bleeker, Wouter Licenced Year(s):20001999199819971996
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:Lambert, M.B. Licenced Year(s):
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....
Principal Investigator:Relf, Carolyn Licenced Year(s):1994
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...
Principal Investigator:Peterson, Tony D. Licenced Year(s):
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....
Principal Investigator:Gebert, James Licenced Year(s):1992
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....
Principal Investigator:Francis, Don Licenced Year(s):
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....
Principal Investigator:Cavell, Patricia A. Licenced Year(s):
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....
Principal Investigator:Hankinson, Flt. LT. K.W. Licenced Year(s):1991
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...
Principal Investigator:Francis, Don Licenced Year(s):1988
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...
