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: This research seeks to resolve the nature and potential source of kimberlite (diamond) indicator minerals, and to improve 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 sediments and v...

Slave Province Surficial Materials and Permafrost Study
Principal Investigator: Elliott, Barrett R
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2015
Summary: The Northwest Territories Geoscience Office in the Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment (ITI) has developed a large collaborative research project to determine the detailed glacial history and permafrost conditions of the central Slave Geological Province. The project goals are to: - stimulate the next round of diamond and metals exploration in the Slave Province - collect permafr...

Mackenzie craton
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objective is to make diamond exploration more efficient in remote northern regions in order to encourage further investments by multi-national diamond exploration companies. Also to enable local communities to better assess their natural resource potential. The research team will record earthquake waves at several widely-spaced locations in the NWT in order to map deep (100-300 km depths) s...

Darnley Bay Resources Ltd. 2010 - 2012 Field Program
Principal Investigator: Reford, Stephen
Licensed Year(s): 2011 2010 2008
Summary: The objective of the Darnley Bay Resources Ltd. 2010 - 2012 Field Program is to collect additional information on the Darnley Bay Gravity Anomaly and to assess kimberlite pipe targets. Six field programs have been proposed (geological prospecting and sampling, claim staking, ground geophysical surveys, bathymetric surveys and two drilling programs) and data collected will aid in DBR's interpretati...

Diadem Resources Ltd. Franklin Diamond Project 2007/2008 Gradiometer Magnetometer Survey.
Principal Investigator: Carroll, Paul
Licensed Year(s): 2007
Summary: , in accordance to the EISC RECOMMENDATIONS in late October 2007. Fieldwork is being licenced confined to March-April 2008. The purpose of this project is to conduct Global Positioning Satellite (GPS)-based gradiometer magnetometer surveys, by JVX on behalf of Diadem. Within the mineral claims, 28 potential targets have been identified in priority sequence to be surveyed. The number of surveys ...

Teleseismic studies in the Lac de Gras area
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2003 2000 1999
Summary: The objective of this ongoing study is to investigate the structure and composition of the Earth's crust and mantle to depths of 0-300 km from sites in the Lac de Gras region. The researchers seek methods to characterize diamond reservoirs in order to make diamond exploration more efficient and low impact. This research will lead to improved mineral exploration strategies, improved estimates of d...

Assessing the Diamond Exploration and Staking Process in Canada's North
Principal Investigator: Hoogeveen, Dawn AB
Licensed Year(s): 2007
Summary: This study is intended to examine Canadian mineral law in terms of diamond exploration and staking. With exploration and staking cultivating increased revenue for a variety of actors, the research objective is to investigate how economic gains of exploration activity benefit and impact residents in the NWT. Archival research, including government documents and community press reports will be ...

Nahanni Mineral and Energy Resource Assessment (MERA) 2
Principal Investigator: Falck, Hendrik
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The objective of this project is to complete a mineral and energy resource assessment (MERA) for the Greater Nahanni Ecosystem. A MERA is a study that tries to estimate whether or not there are metals, gems, or oil/gas in an area, and is required by Fed...

Southern Bear Province Geological Mapping Project: MT Component
Principal Investigator: Spratt, Jessica
Licensed Year(s): 2004
Summary: The overarching objective of the project is to understand the nature of the Paleoproterozoic western boundary of the Slave craton for both academic and economic reasons. Two people will fly out by float plane from Yellowknife and will join the camp previ...
