Mackenzie Mountains bedrock mapping and stratigraphic studies
Principal Investigator: MacNaughton, Robert B.
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The objective of this research is to improve the public understanding of bedrock geology of two regions of the Mackenzie Mountains, including folding and faulting, stratigraphic relationships, tectonic history, and economic mineralogy. This objective includes sharing geoscience information with all interested parties through the production and publication of bedrock geology maps and reports on the...


Beaulieu River Belt Collaborative VMS Project
Principal Investigator: Knox, Bernadette
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: The objectives of this project are to update and increase the understanding of the geological history of an area along the Beaulieu River. The work will be conducted mostly on foot with access to the shore provided by canoe and zodiac boat. Notes on the geology will be taken and entered into a database. Holes up to 1m in depth will be dug to make observations and take samples of the till, the h...


Metallogenic Investigation of the East Arm
Principal Investigator: Cairns, Scott
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: Recent evolving thoughts on the geological history of the East Arm of Great Slave Lake require the area to be re-evaluated with respect to its structural and metamorphic history as well as to explain its metal endowment. This study seeks to evaluate the structural and metamorphic history of the area, and its potential to host economic mineralization. Field investigations will examine exposures ...


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...


Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Merzouk, Anissa
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The 2017 field program constitutes a subset of activities of the ArcticNet’s marine-based research program that has been conducted in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (IRS) within the framework of Scientific Research Licenses awarded for 2009-2013, for 2014-2015 and for 2016-2017. Planned activities will focus on the recovery and deployment of oceanographic moorings as part of ArcticNet’s Long...


Glacial lakes McConnell and Mackenzie reconstructed from Pleistocene deltas of the Mackenzie River tributaries
Principal Investigator: Froese, Duane G
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objective of this project is to investigate the architecture of Pleistocene deltas on the Mackenzie River tributaries, search evidence of high-magnitude discharge events, and collect samples for absolute dating. The research team will investigate the stratigraphic description of sedimentary sections in the river banks cutting through the Pleistocene deltas. Collection of samples are for rad...


Geology of the Snowbird zone, Saskatchewan and NWT
Principal Investigator: Williams, Michael L
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The snowbird Tectonic zone is an enigmatic structure in the framework of the Canadian Shield. It is a linear zone on geologic maps stretching northeastward from the Rocky Mountains through Lake Athabasca to Hudson Bay. It was originally recognized on aerial surveys. It was clearly an important element in the construction of the North American continent more than 2 billion years ago, but interpreta...


Prospecting for Earth’s oldest rocks using geochemical signatures of Pleistocene glacial sediments
Principal Investigator: Bilak, Grayson S
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: For this research the Principal Investigator (PI) propses an innovative combination of quaternary geology, isotope geochemistry, and Precambrian geochronology that will identity previously unmapped outcrops of ancient continental crust in the Acasta Gneiss Complex (AGC). An age range and bedrock composition will be generated for the research area and used to help further the understanding of the p...


Coppermine River Transect
Principal Investigator: Rainbird, Robert H
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: Fieldwork is proposed to acquire geological observations and collect rock samples for laboratory analysis. Results of fieldwork in the area will contribute to acquiring state-of-the-art data, updated maps, and related publicly available publications. Work consists of visual examination, description, measurement, and photography of rock outcrops. GPS units and satellite imagery will be used to l...


Glacial limits of western Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Duk-Rodkin, Alejandra ADR
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective of this research is to create a regional 1:1,000,000 scale glacial limits map with glacier extent of various ages, ice-flow indicators and drainage diversions. The map will cover the Northwest Territories south from 66° 00’ 00” N and east of the continental divide. Work is mainly conducted through visual examination, description, measurement, and photography of surficial features....
