Granatic pegmatites of the Canadian Cordillera
Principal Investigator: Groat, Lee A.
Licensed Year(s): 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The researchers will continue their study, begun in 1993, on the pegmatites found in the Selwyn Mountains and other western Canadian locations. Pegmatites contain rare elements such as lithium, beryllium, ribidium, niobium, cesium and talalum. This study will result study will result in a summary of information on pegmatites, including detailed information on their classification, origins and...

Permafrost studies: western arctic coast
Principal Investigator: Mackay, J.R.
Licensed Year(s): 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1989
Summary: This permafrost study has been part of a long-term study initiated in 1951. The researcher will collect data that will allow a better understanding of the growth of ice wedges, pingos and permafrost....

Bedrock Studies in the Eqe Bay and Adjacent Area, West-Central Baffin Island
Principal Investigator: Jackson, G.D.
Licensed Year(s): 1992
Summary: The first of two field seasons, the project will map and study the bedrock. Of major interest are the nature and origins of the rocks, their structures, economic potential, ages and possible correlations with similar rocks in other regions....

Geology of the Wijinnedi Lake Map Area, District of Mackenzie
Principal Investigator: Henderson, John B.
Licensed Year(s): 1992
Summary: The research will collect information to produce maps which outline the distribution of various rock types, attempting to show their relationship to each other in order to understand their history, how they orignially formed and what has happened to them between then and now. This data will also assist in the search for mineral deposits in the study area....

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....

Geophysical Mapping of Buried Massive Ground Ice, Fosheim Peninsula, Ellesmere Island, NWT
Principal Investigator: Robinson, Stephen
Licensed Year(s): 1992
Summary: Massive ice is found in exposure in some sections of the Fosheim Peninsula. The exact origin, distribution and characteristics of these ice bodies are largely unknown. Geophysical surveys will be conducted and ice and sediment samples will be taken and analyzed....

Origin of Polygonal Peat Plateaus under Conditions of Continuous Permafrost, Truelove Lowland, Devon Island, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Somr, C.H.
Licensed Year(s): 1992 1988 1987
Summary: The Researcher will continue to study peat plateaus formed under conditions of continuous permafrost in Truelove Lowland, Devon Island....

U-Pb Geochronology and Isotope Systematics of Kimerlites and their Mantle Zenoliths
Principal Investigator: Heaman, Larry
Licensed Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher and team will conduct a geological investigation of kimberlites on the NE side of Somerset Island. They will collect samples of Somerset Island kimberlites to provide information concerning their timing, origin and isotopic evolution. The data will be added to a North American database for a better understanding of the isotopic nature of the Earth's mantle on a global scale....

Geomorphology and Groundwater Hydrology of the Lower Devonian Bear Rock Formation, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Ford, Derek C.
Licensed Year(s): 1988 1987
Summary: Jim Hamilton, a student of Dr. Ford from McMaster University, and his field assistant will hike through these areas to record the locations of different kinds of rocks and landforms. He is also interested in finding out how water from snowmelt and rain travels through the soil and rocks to come out at various springs. To do this, he will inject a nonpoisonous fluid so that he can trace the water...

Geology of the Hare Fiord (Ellesmere Island) and Gibs Fiord (Axel Heiberg Island) regions
Principal Investigator: Schwerdtner, W.M.
Licensed Year(s): 1991 1990 1988
Summary: to map geology of these regions in order to investigate origin of these rocks...
