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...

Granites of the Wecho River Area: A Geochemical and Petrologic Perspective
Principal Investigator: Buse, Sarah
Licensed Year(s): 2004
Summary: This research is for an M.Sc. project focused on defining the granites within the Wecho River area and is in conjunction with the Wecho River Mapping Project (Scientific Licence #13614). Mapping will be conducted throughout the summer. Mapping data will...

Structural Geology of the Jackson Lake Formation.
Principal Investigator: Martel, Edith
Licensed Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team will be transported from Yellowknife by aircraft, and will travel by small boat in the field. Samples (fist-sized chunks of rock) will be collected with a hammer, and returned to the laboratory for detailed physical and chemical analysis. Field camps will be low impact, and will be occupied by only 2 persons at a time. All human waste will be buried, all non-burnable garbage w...

Examination and Dating of 4.0-2.9 Billion Year Old Rocks in the Slave and Wopmay Geological Provinces of the Canadian Shield
Principal Investigator: Ketchum, John
Licensed Year(s): 2001
Summary: During the proposed study, transportation of the research team to the field will be by fixed-wing float plane from Yellowknife. From the base camp at Grant Lake, the research team will examine the study area immediately to the east on foot and by inflatable boat. Rock samples up to 20 kg (45 lbs) will be collected for age dating. It is anticipated that only 4-5 samples will be collected for dating...

Thematic Structural, Stratigraphic and Geochronologic Studies of the Slave Structural Province.
Principal Investigator: Bleeker, Wouter
Licensed Year(s): 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994
Summary: The objective of this study is to improve the geological understanding of the Slave Geological Province in general and specific key areas in more detail (eg. areas northeast of Yellowknife known as the Sleepy Dragon Complex, the Acasta Gneiss Complex, the Courageous Lake area, etc.). Various rock types will be mapped and described and their role in the complex geological history of the Slave Prov...

Detailed bedrock mapping in the Indin Lake area
Principal Investigator: Pehrsson, Sally J
Licensed Year(s): 1996 1995 1994
Summary: This will be the researcher's concluding summer for this project. The detailed mapping data (structural, petrological) in combination with the geochemical and geochronological sampling will be accomplished by foot and boat traverses with occasional fixed and rotary wing support. All data will be entered digitally for computer map compilation....

Detailed Bedrock Mapping in the Winter Lake Supracrustal Belt
Principal Investigator: Hrabi, Blair
Licensed Year(s): 1994
Summary: This will be the final summer of field work for this project. The detailed mapping data in combination with geochemistry will enable the researcher to gie a detailed geological history of the area, including timing of certain geological events (age of volcanism and granite plutons) as well as a deformational history....

Quaternary Geology of the Beaufort Sea Coastal Plain
Principal Investigator: Vincent, Jean-Serge
Licensed Year(s): 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The researcher and his team will complete a detailed paleomagnetic sampling of the glacial and nonglacial sediments in the Morgan Bluffs of eastern Banks Island, and collect samples of boulders for Chlorine 36 dating. The data will allow the team to confirm or disconfirm previously proposed correlations and establish on a firmer basis the chronological framework for one of the longest sequences o...

Regional Geological Mapping of the Winter Lake and Lac de Gras Map Area, District of Mackenzie, NWT
Principal Investigator: Thompson, Peter H.
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1992
Summary: Using a combination of regional bedrock mapping, detailed mapping, and special studies in the fields of petrology, structural geology, geochronology, geophysics, metallogeny and surficial geology, the research will determine the origin, evolution and economic potential of part of the Slave Structural Province, Canadian Shield....

Tectonomagmatic Evolution of the Scerdrup Basin, Canadian Arctic Archipelago
Principal Investigator: Muecke, Gunter K.
Licensed Year(s): 1992 1990 1989
Summary: The Researcher and assistants will investigate the field relations, petrology, mineralogy, geochemistry, and geochronology of magmatic rocks of the northern Canadian Arctic Islands....
