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...

Nahanni Mineral and Energy Resource Assessment (MERA2)
Principal Investigator: Falck, Hendrik
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: Parks Canada would like to expand the existing Nahanni National Park Reserve. Before this can be done, mineral and energy resource assessment (MERA) study is needed for the Greater Nahanni Ecosystem so that mineral deposits or oil fields that could provide jobs and wealth for Northerners and Canadians are not overlooked. This study has five main steps: 1) Review all available bedrock geology ...

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...

Southern Bear Regional Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Jackson, Valerie A
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Southern Bear project area is centred approximately 240 km north-northwest of Yellowknife. Geological data on the area is sparse; the geology of the area is poorly understood and no modern geoscience data sets are available. This mapping project will d...

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...

Surficial Geology and Till Geochemistry of the Yellowknife Greenstone Belt Area.
Principal Investigator: Kerr, Daniel E.
Licensed Year(s): 2001 2000 1999
Summary: The primary objective is to provide geoscience data and new exploration techniques in the Yellowknife Greenstone Belt area that can be used in delineation of reserves and discovery of new mineral deposits. The main mode of transportation will be by helicopter (206L), float plane, truck (where road access is available), and possibly by boat. The helicopter and plane will be based out of Yellowkni...

Exploration Geochemistry of Gold, Slave Province, NWT
Principal Investigator: Fletcher, W.K.
Licensed Year(s): 1992
Summary: The research will involve the collection of soil, lake sediments and waters. Soil and lake sediments will be sieved to give different size fractions (sand, silt, clay, etc.) and each fraction analyzed for gold to determine which size fraction is best to use in gold exploration....
