Terrestrial geoscience studies of earthquake (seismic) hazard in the Mackenzie-Beaufort area
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licensed Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: Industry and regulators require information on seismicity and its effect on engineering structures both at a regional and local scale. The primary source of this information is the National Building Code of Canada’s Seismic Hazard Value map. Ongoing work undertaken as part of the 2015 revision of this map suggests that an increased seismic (earthquake) hazard exists in the Mackenzie-Beaufort area....


Geology of the Tunnunik impact structure, Victoria Island, NWT
Principal Investigator: Osinski, Gordon
Licensed Year(s): 2015 2012
Summary: This project seeks to carry out the first detailed study of the newly discovered Tunnunik impact structure, located on Victoria Island, NWT. The research team will carry out field mapping and conduct gravity, ground magnetic, and seismic surveys, and sample for paleomagnetic studies. They will also ground-truth a remote predictive map generated with Radarsat-2 and other satellite data. The goal...


Geology of the Acasta Gneiss Complex: Decoding of early earth evolution
Principal Investigator: Komiya, Tsuyoshi
Licensed Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objectives are to conduct a geological survey and rock sampling in the Acasta Gneiss Complex to investigate evolution of the early earth. The Acasta Gneiss is the oldest rock in the world, and uniquely records the early earth. The Acasta Gneiss has many generations and a complex history including not only the magmatic formation with different ages but also deformations. Comprehensive works on ...


Geology of the Brock Inlier
Principal Investigator: Rainbird, Robert H
Licensed Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: The main goal is to upgrade the geological knowledge of an area that has not been studied since the late 1960s. To the research team will study and describe rocks exposed in cliff sections along the Brock and Hornaday rivers. Work will involve thickness measurements of sedimentary layers (strata) and detailed descriptions (including photography) and collection of small (half fist-sized) rock s...


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...


Mackenzie Mountains Expedition
Principal Investigator: Enkelmann, Eva
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: The research team plan to test the hypothesis that the reactivation of mountain building processes in the Mackenzie’s is due to the growth of the St. Elias Mountains. The research team will collect field observations and rock samples for various dating techniques that allow quantification of the rates and timing of surface uplift over thousands and million year time scales. The results will be com...


Reconnaissance Study of Smoking Hills
Principal Investigator: Dunfield, Peter F
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this work is to conduct a one day reconnaissance study of the Smoking Hills area. Mineral, rock, water and soil samples will be collected. Geochemical properties and microbial communities will be analysed in the laboratory in order to characterize any potential features unique to this site that would warrant future, more detailed research. The site will be accessed by helicopt...


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...


Beaufort Sea Coastal Geoscience Research 2013
Principal Investigator: Whalen, Dustin JR
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The primary objective of this research is to ensure safe and sustainable industrial and community development by improving the understanding of coastal and nearshore seabed processes and properties. The research provides the means to improve the knowledge of physical conditions in the coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations, and local residents understand, mitigate and redu...


Petrogenesis of the Acasta Gneiss Complex: Ancient Rocks Revisited
Principal Investigator: Reimink, Jesse R
Licensed Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011
Summary: The present study aims to obtain information with the following objectives: 1) further describe, sample, and document field relationships and structures present in areas that were sampled and found to be significantly old (>3.8 billion years); 2) explore and sample other units which based on field relationships and mineralogy are likely to be as old or older than previously documented samples; 3) ...
