Paleozoic rift history of western Laurentia as recorded in Yukon-NWT-Alaska
Principal Investigator: Cobbett, Rose
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective is to use geochemistry (composition of rocks) and geochronology (dating of rocks) to characterize volcanic rocks in order to better understand the environment that they were formed in and in turn learn about the tectonic history of western North America through Paleozoic time (~541 - 252 Million years). Results will be published in a series of Yukon Geological Survey publications, se...


Devonian reference section, sourcerocks and paleomagnetic study
Principal Investigator: Kabanov, Pavel
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: To acquire a reference geologic section of Devonian strata in the area of relatively easy access and with the preservation of rocks allowing for comprehensive study of Devonian-time Earth and hydrocarbon potential of the Canol shale play. The research team will be conducting field measurement and photo-documentation of the available section, survey of the measured section with spectral gamma-ra...


De Beers Canada Snap Lake Mine Environmental Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Hood, Alexandra E
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2002 2001 2000 1999
Summary: This research is intended to meet regulatory requirements from the Snap Lake Environmental Assessment and under the mine's Water License, Land Use permit and Environmental Agreement. The objectives of this research project are to obtain and determine annual variability of the relative abundance, distribution, group composition and behaviour of caribou; the relative activity of grizzly bears; t...


Geochemical and isotopic studies of Acasta Gneiss Complex, the oldest terrestrial rock on Earth
Principal Investigator: Lee, Seung-Gu
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective of this project is to collect rock samples from the Acasta Gneiss Complex, the oldest terrestrial rock on Earth, and to find a geochemical proxy which can shed light on the studies of early Earth rare earth element geochemistry and cosmochemistry. The field research will be carried mostly spot to spot based on the published geologic maps of previous researchers. The research team ...


Geoscience Tools for Supporting Environmental Risk Assessment of Metal Mining
Principal Investigator: Galloway, Jennifer
Licensed Year(s): 2016
Summary: This project will focus on providing baseline information for areas of high resource potential. In areas of past land use and soon to be developed areas in the Slave Geological Province, the project will generate new spatial and temporal data on changing geochemical, permafrost, ecological and climate data for the past 1000 years. This data will be integrated with Traditional Ecological Knowledge ...


Assessing the impact of small, Canadian Arctic river flows to the freshwater budget of the Canadian Archipelago
Principal Investigator: Alkire, Matthew B
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015 2014
Summary: There are two primary goals of this project: 1) to determine whether relatively small Canadian Arctic rivers significantly contribute to the total volume of freshwater that drains through Davis Strait; and, 2) to determine if they are chemically distinct from larger North American rivers such as the Mackenzie and Yukon Rivers. To achieve these goals the research team propose to collect water sampl...


Examining the Acasta Gneiss Complex: A Broader Scope
Principal Investigator: Belosevic, Mike
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: This study is designed to encompass the following goals: 1) Collect samples from the expanded Acasta Gneiss Complex (AGC) study area; 2) Perform field mapping and general exploration of the expanded study area; 3) Perform age dating and isotopic analysis of the collected samples along with whole-rock geochemistry to compare data with those in the extensively studied AGC body adjacent to the Acasta...


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...


Sedimentology and Ichnology of the Cambrian Mount Clark and Mount Cap Formations, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Gingras, Murray K
Licensed Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: For the Mount Clark Formation, the primary goals are: (1) to use sedimentological and trace-fossil data to determine the sedimentary environment so that the distribution of sand bodies might be better understood; (2) to conduct petrographic investigations to understand the distribution of diagenetic cements and porosity; (3) to establish if there is a relationship between bioturbation and porosity...


Tracking environmental change in the Neoproterozoic Sheepbed and Keele Formations, Mackenzie Mountains, Northwest Territories, Canada
Principal Investigator: Sperling, Erik A
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objective is to collect high quality and high resolution stratigraphic and sedimentological data of the Sheepbed and Keele Formations at their type localities, along with accompanying samples for geochemical and petrological analysis. Specifically, the overall goal is to understand how these formations at their type sections relates to their correlatives throughout northwestern Canada, and det...
