Permafrost monitoring and collection of baseline terrain information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor, NWT
Principal Investigator: Smith, Sharon S
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objectives of this project are: 1) to provide baseline knowledge of permafrost and terrain conditions (specifically ground temperature and active layer thickness) and improve characterization of terrain sensitivity in the Mackenzie Valley; 2) to monitor ground temperature and active layer to detect changes in permafrost conditions resulting from surface disturbance or climate change and to ...


Legislating Space: Cartographic technologies, geological data, indigenous land governance and the Mineral Resources Act of the Northwest Territories, Canada.
Principal Investigator: Becker, Matilda L
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The goal of this project is to examine how the burgeoning use of digital technologies (Online Map Staking) and data (Geological data sharing) might have a cumulative impact on people’s land-based legal rights. This research is qualitative and will involve direct interaction with members of the scientific, indigenous, non-indigenous and government/non-governmental community based in Yellowknife...

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...


North Slave Permafrost Study: Characterizing and Predicting Discontinuous Permafrost for Climate Change Adaptation
Principal Investigator: Wolfe, Stephen A
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: This activity will describe and predict the occurrence of discontinuous permafrost in the northern Great Slave Lake region to assist in planning, development and maintenance of community and industry infrastructure. Future changes in climate will affect permafrost distribution, temperatures and geotechnical conditions. It is anticipated that different landscapes across the region will exhibit vary...


2008-2010 Baseline Studies for Avalon Ventures Ltd. Proposed Thor Lake Rare Earth Metals Project - Aquatics Component
Principal Investigator: Lawson, Nick
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008
Summary: The objectives of this project are to characterize the baseline water and sediment quality within the Thor Lake area, and to characterize the baseline aquatic community through the collection of phytoplankton, zooplankton and benthic invertebrates. Water, sediment and aquatic organisms will be collected from 20 stations within the Thor Lake area. Most stations will be accessed by ATV and/or bo...


Minto Inlier, NWT Aeromagnetic Survey 2010
Principal Investigator: Miles, Warner F.
Licensed Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: The objective of the 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 provide...
