2006 Winter Field Geotechnical Investigation Program in the Sahtu Settlement Area - Tulita District
Principal Investigator: Hawkins, Jim R.
Licensed Year(s): 2006 2006
Summary: A field office will be set up in Norman Wells. Primary access to the field is the winter road that extends north of Wrigley to Fort Good Hope. Two temporary rig camps will be set up, one near the Hamlet of Tulita and the other near the intersection of of the existing winter road and Little Smith Creek. Each camp will be able to accommodate up to 65 people. Secondary access to the investigation s...

The Snare River Mapping Project: parts of NTS 85O and 85N
Principal Investigator: Jackson, Valerie A
Licensed Year(s): 2002 2001 2000
Summary: The Snare River mapping project will define the structural, metamorphic, lithographical and geochemical bedrock characteristics of the area, providing an up-dated geological data base. The mapping team will be flown out by float plane from Yellowknife in...

Development of shallow seismic techniques to delineate gas hydrate deposits
Principal Investigator: Good, Ron
Licensed Year(s): 1999
Summary: The survey will be carried out along two lines near the Mallik L-38 drill site, with phones at 3 m spacings. A number of energy sources will be tried. These will include an 8 gauge "Buffalo" gun, an elastic accelerated weight drop, a mini-vib system, and a hammer and plate. The Buffalo gun will require holes drilled every 3 m, its 500 grain 8 gauge shells are fired at 1 metre depth and have no im...

Kennedy Lake Wildlife Monitoring and Traditional Sites Identification Project`
Principal Investigator: Poniatowski, Brian
Licensed Year(s): 1998
Summary: The community monitor will carry out monitoring of wildlife, principally caribou, which are of great importance to the Lutselk'e First Nation. This will be done by directly observing their numbers, sex of animals (if this can be determined), age, condition, movements and behaviour in relation to Kennedy Lake camp and to specific worksites, such as sites where drilling or till sampling are being ca...

Magnetotelluric studies along the Lupin Mine winter road.
Principal Investigator: Jones, Alan
Licensed Year(s): 1999 1998
Summary: At approximately forty (40) locations along the 600-km-long winter road, sensors will be lowered through small holes drilled through the lake ice onto the lake bottom. These sensors will measure time variations of the Earth's natural electric field, and these variations will be recorded by devices on the lake shores. The recordings at each locations will take 1-3 weeks, after which all equipment...

Geology of the Wagenitz Lake area, south-central Slave Province (NTS 85 P/4)
Principal Investigator: Stubley, Mike
Licensed Year(s): 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The researchers will examine, document, and sample surface outcrops in the study area. The information will be recorded on a map which will summarize the geological rock-types and mineral resources of the area. The researchers will camp at two separate sites during the field season. The work will consist primarily of daily walks from wherever they can get their inflatable boat. Airplane suppor...

Stratigraphy and sedimentology of Permian and Triassic strata, northern Yukon and adjacent NWT
Principal Investigator: Dixon, James
Licensed Year(s): 1996 1994 1993 1992 1991
Summary: Specific sites will be visited using daily helicopter flights based out of Inuvik. Site visits will last from 15 minutes to several hours and at each site the rocks will be identified and described, the vertical arrangements of rocks will be measured and noted, and samples (about fist-sized) will be taken where deemed necessary. Samples will be taken to Calgary where they will be used either to ...
