Mineralogy, Geochemistry, and Fluid Inclusions of the Caribou Lake Layered Mafic-Ultramafic Intrusion
Principal Investigator: Neyedley, Kevin
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The purpose of the study is to examine the rocks near Blachford lake lodge to gain a better understanding of how they formed and why there are there. Initial mapping has shown that they are unusual with more iron and nickel in them than would be normally expected and we would like to look at them to better understand their history. There have been exploration companies interested in these rocks an...

The cumulative impacts of rapid environmental change in the northwestern NWT: Investigating the impacts of mega-slump disturbances on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in the lower Peel watershed, NW
Principal Investigator: Lacelle, Denis
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: This is a multidisciplinary project involving communities, governments and academic researchers. The goals are to : 1) inventory and track broad scale changes in landscape disturbances; 2) determine the impacts of natural and anthropogenic disturbances on the physical and chemical characteristics and ecology of streams and rivers; 3) determine disturbance thresholds relevant to the health of strea...

South Rae, NWT Aeromagnetic Survey
Principal Investigator: Miles, Warner F.
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: The objective of this airborne survey is to acquire high-resolution aeromagnetic data. Aeromagnetic surveys measure magnetic properties of bedrock and are one of the tools used in geological mapping. The bedrock may contain mineral deposits, such as gold, copper, lead, zinc, and diamonds. Understanding the geology will help geologists map the area, assist mineral exploration activities , and provi...

Geology of the Redstone Copperbelt
Principal Investigator: Milton, Jack E
Licensed Year(s): 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of this research project is to further the knowledge of the geology of the Redstone Copperbelt - an area of copper deposits within the Mackenzie Mountains. This will lead to a clearer understanding of the science behind the formation of copper deposits. This information can be utilized by environmental and exploration companies to provide baseline data on the distribution of copper ...

GEM Great Bear magmatic zone/iron oxide copper-gold deposit project
Principal Investigator: Corriveau, Louise
Licensed Year(s): 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of the Great Bear/IOCG geoscience research and mapping project are to: • develop a modern geological, crustal architecture and exploration framework for polymetallic iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposit-type mineralizing systems in the Great Bear magmatic zone and new exploration methods for IOCG deposits in glaciated terrains; • validate deposit-type model for known mineral occu...

Geological Fieldwork in Mackenzie Plain and Adjacent Mountains.
Principal Investigator: MacNaughton, Robert B.
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of this study are: • To increase the geoscience knowledge of the NWT, particularly around Norman Wells and Tulita, and in the surrounding mountains. • To provide public geoscience information to all stakeholders through the production of bedrock geology maps and related reports on petroleum potential. • To encourage new and more effective exploration for oil and gas that will l...

2008 Baseline studies for Avalon Ventures Ltd. proposed Thor Lake Rare Earth Metals Project (Terrain component)
Principal Investigator: Sibbald, Carey
Licensed Year(s): 2009 2008
Summary: This licence is issued for the scientific research application #912. The objective of this research is to provide baseline information on the terrain in and around the Thor Lake area. Filed observations will allow the researchers to produce a terrain map of the Thor lake area. To do this, the land must be categorized based on landforms, mineral deposits, drainage, slopes and geohazards (fo...

Sedimentology of the Cretaceous in the Mackenzie Corridor
Principal Investigator: Davison, Julia
Licensed Year(s): 2008
Summary: This licence was issued for the application # 831. The objective of this study is to improve the detail on publicly-available maps and look at unanswered geological questions about Cretaceous rocks in the Sahtu region. Geological tools have changed sufficiently since the previous maps were made to warrant another more detail-focused study. The aim of the field work is to make measurements and c...

Regional Terrain Hazards Mapping
Principal Investigator: Couture, Réjean
Licensed Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The goal of this project is to compile updated baseline information/knowledge on the types, regional distribution, and controls (e.g. forests fires, climate change) of landslides. The main objectives of the field reconnaissance at landslide sites are six-fold: 1) to validate previous data collected through air photo interpretation and remote sensing techniques; 2) to carry out detailed mapping at ...

Taltson Hydro Project; Expansion Baseline Studies and Water Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Uren, Shane
Licensed Year(s): 2004
Summary: The Expansion Project proposes to supply power to the Snap Lake, Gahcho Kue, Diavik and EKATI mine sites by expanding the existing infrastructure at the facilities on the Taltson River at Twin Gorges and at Nonacho Lake. Studies characterizing baseline e...
