Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Program: Western Arctic Project - Smoking Hills
Principal Investigator: Smith, Rod
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: This research will provide the geological information needed to correlate Cretaceous (<140 Ma) and younger geology of the Smoking Hills with that on Banks Island and elsewhere in the Canadian High Arctic and Mackenzie-Beaufort region. This will provide a greater understanding of the age and evolution of the offshore Canada Basin (Arctic Ocean). Studies of kimberlite indicator minerals will provide...

Geo-Mapping for Energy and Minerals Program Proposed Fieldwork: Western Arctic Project: Banks Island
Principal Investigator: Smith, Rod
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The proposed research seeks to resolve the nature and potential source of kimberlite (diamond) indicator minerals, and to improve our understanding of the geological history of Banks Island, and how this relates to off-shore geology and regional hydrocarbon systems. For the kimberlite (diamond) indicator mineral study, the research team will take up to 100 small (10-20 kg) samples of stream sed...

Assessment of seismic shothole-associated gas seeps, Mackenzie Delta, NWT
Principal Investigator: Smith, Rod
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: Dr. Rod Smith’s ongoing compilation of drillers’ log records from geophysical seismic exploration activities in the Mackenzie Delta and vicinity has identified approximately 214 sites where “gas” was reportedly encountered. This study proposes to revisit as many as possible of these sites that are land-based, or in near shore lake/pond environments, in order to determine which, if any, are still s...

Application of shallow geophysical investigations to understanding surficial geology, Mackenzie corridor and Colville Hills, NWT
Principal Investigator: Smith, Rod
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: This licence was issued for the scientific research application No. 935. This study will test whether the shallow geophysics techniques of Ground Penetrating Radar and Ohm Mapper Resistivity Logging, in combination with seismic shothole drillers’ logs, can be used to resolve the nature and extent of the surficial geology cover and permafrost characteristics in two areas of recent seismic explor...

Central Foreland Project- Surficial Geology Mapping, La Biche Map Sheet.
Principal Investigator: Smith, Rod
Licensed Year(s): 1999
Summary: The purpose of the study is to continue the standard 1:50 000 geological mapping that was started in the summer of 1997 as per mandate of the Geological Survey of Canada. Parties will be sent out by helicopter from Fort Liard and most of the area will be visited only once. The primary method of fieldwork is by foot traverse. Observations will be recorded and small samples of rocks and sediments...

Testing for Pre-Holocene Lacustrine Sediments in the Canadian High Arctic
Principal Investigator: Smith, Rod
Licensed Year(s): 1994
Summary: This study will test the hypothesis that pre-Holocene (older than 10, 000 years) lake sedimentary records exist within modern lake basins found on Ellesmere Island. Recent research has not been able to penetrate beyond a layer of course sand and pebbles. Recent technological improvements in the coring apparatus should allow the full penetration of this material, as well as the hypothesized older...

Late Quaternary history and paleoenvironmental change in the Lake Hazen Basin on Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Smith, Rod
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: It is believed that during the last ice-age on northern Ellesmere Island, Lake Hazen was `pushed' further south as a result of the presence of glaciers. The researchers are investigating the Lake Hazen Basin area to determine the nature of this ancient lake. Sediment samples will be taken from both Lake Hazen as well as the surrounding area to study the past environment and organisms (now fossils...

Palaeoenvironment of Truelove Lowland (Devon Island) as Determined from Lake Sediments
Principal Investigator: Smith, Rod
Licensed Year(s): 1988
Summary: Rod Smith and Louise Hollingsworth are part of Dr. King's research party working on the Truelove Lowland. They will be extracting columns of soil from the bottoms of the larger lakes to determine what the climate was like long ago. They will also collect soil samples from the areas surrounding the lake for comparative purposes....
