Reconstructing latitudinal terrestrial temperature gradients at the Cretaceous-Paleogene Boundary: testing the 'Equable Earth' hypothesis
Principal Investigator: Jerrett, Rhodri
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The research team have chosen this site in the Northwest Territories to collect coal samples from, as it contains the Cretaceous-Paleogene sandstone and iridium-anomaly that places the ages of these coals in that period. The team will access pristine coal samples by excavating the weathered rock back by 1 m (using spade and shovel). They will then sample a vertical profile by collecting coal sampl...


Shale Basin Evolution in Central NWT (2019)
Principal Investigator: Terlaky, Viktor
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective is to scope the Imperial Formation in order to develop a more extensive future study of this formation, and to sample the sites for conodont fossil bearing carbonates in order to better age date the Horn River Group deposits. At each site the rock exposure will be photographed in detail. At Mountain River and Gayna Gorge the outcrop will be sampled for conodont fossil bearing car...


Lac Levis Aeromagnetic Survey
Principal Investigator: Kiss, Frank
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective of this airborne survey is to acquire high-resolution aeromagnetic data. This survey will be flown to improve our knowledge of the area. It will support potential future ground-based geological mapping and to provide basic information to support mineral exploration. The survey will consist of approximately 27,600 line km of surveying flown at a line spacing of 500 m (or 1,640 feet...


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 ...


Mackenzie Mountains Aeromagnetic Survey
Principal Investigator: Kiss, Frank
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objective of this airborne survey is to acquire high-resolution aeromagnetic data. This survey will be flown to improve the knowledge of the area. It will support potential future ground-based geological mapping and to provide basic information to support mineral exploration. The survey will consist of approximately 53,000 line km of surveying flown at a line spacing of 800 m (or 2625 feet)...


Mackenzie Mountains Aeromagnetic Survey
Principal Investigator: Coyle, Maurice
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective of this airborne survey is to acquire high-resolution aeromagnetic data. This survey will be flown to improve the knowledge of the area. It will support potential future ground-based geological mapping and to provide basic information to support mineral exploration. The survey will consist of approximately 77,000 line km of surveying flown at a line spacing of 800 m (or 2625 feet)...


South Rae Project
Principal Investigator: Pehrsson, Sally J
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2012
Summary: This work is part of NRCan’s Geo-mapping for Energy and Minerals Program, designed to upgrade the geoscience knowledge base in Canada’s North to modern standards. A team of 10-15 scientists set up a temporary camp in the area of interest. Float planes, helicopter and boats are used to access remote areas. The scientists walk on the land and make observations, take notes and draw sketches. Small...


Mackenzie craton
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objective is to make diamond exploration more efficient in remote northern regions in order to encourage further investments by multi-national diamond exploration companies. Also to enable local communities to better assess their natural resource potential. The research team will record earthquake waves at several widely-spaced locations in the NWT in order to map deep (100-300 km depths) s...


Early Neoproterozoic Stratigraphy of the Mackenzie Mountains
Principal Investigator: Halverson, Galen P
Licensed Year(s): 2014 2011
Summary: The objectives are to collect high quality and high resolution stratigraphic and sedimentological data in the field, along with accompanying samples for geochemical and petrological analysis. At the same time, all field areas in which the group works will be mapped in detail. The field party will separate into two groups. One group will be focused on logging stratigraphic sections and sampling...
