Coppermine River Transect
Principal Investigator: Rainbird, Robert H
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: Fieldwork is proposed to acquire geological observations and collect rock samples for laboratory analysis. Results of fieldwork in the area will contribute to acquiring state-of-the-art data, updated maps, and related publicly available publications. Work consists of visual examination, description, measurement, and photography of rock outcrops. GPS units and satellite imagery will be used to l...

Geology of the Brock Inlier
Principal Investigator: Rainbird, Robert H
Licensed Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: The goal of this project is to upgrade the geological knowledge of an area which hasn’t been studied since the late 1960s. The research team hopes to study and describe rocks exposed in cliff sections along the Brock and Hornaday rivers. Work will involve thickness measurements of sedimentary layers (strata) and detailed descriptions (including photography) as well as collection of small (half...

Geology and Resource Potential of Northwest Victoria Island
Principal Investigator: Rainbird, Robert H
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: The objective of the project is to better understand the geology of the region through collection and analysis of rock specimens and regional geological mapping. This year the researchers would like to collect hand specimens of rocks for future studies and to look for areas where more detailed studies can be done in the future. Understanding the geology will help geologists map the area, assist m...

Geology of the Hornby Bay Basin
Principal Investigator: Rainbird, Robert H
Licensed Year(s): 2007
Summary: This study aims to describe the formation of a very large depression that covered most of north-western Canada 1.7 billion-years ago. This will be helpful to understand the geological evolution of the Canadian Shield, and ultimately, how Earth formed, how it changed through time and how it will evolve in the future. The researchers will be using transportation (helicopter and fixed wing aircr...
