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...


Blatchford Lake, NT Airborne Gravity Gradiometry Survey
Principal Investigator: Miles, Warner F.
Licensed Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objective of the airborne survey is to acquire high-resolution airborne gravity gradient and magnetic data. Airborne gravity gradiometry surveys measure small variations in the rate of change of the gravity field due to lateral variations in the mass and density of underlying bedrock. Aeromagnetic surveys measure magnetic properties of bedrock and are one of the tools used in geological mapp...


Southern Bear Province Geological Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Jackson, Valerie A
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The project is aimed at obtaining a better understanding of the bedrock geology and mineral potential of the South Bear area. Southern Bear project area is in the Bear Structural Province of the Northwest Territories centred approximately 240 km north-northwest of Yellowknife. Geological data on the area is sparse and limited to 1:250 000 regional mapping by the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC...


Snowbird Lake Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Martel, Edith
Licensed Year(s): 2004
Summary: The mapping team (5-6 researchers) will be flown out by floatplane from Yellowknife in early June and a camp will be established. Island campsites are preferred as a deterrent against bear encounters. With the aid of zodiac-style inflatable boats, the re...


Wecho River Geological Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Ootes, Luke
Licensed Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of this mapping project is to define the structural, metamorphic, lithological and geochemical bedrock characteristics of the area, and provide this information in an updated geological database. This is the second year of a two-year projec...
