Geology and Resource Potential of Northwest Victoria Island
Principal Investigator: Rainbird, Robert H
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: The objective of the project is to better understand the geology of the region through collection and analysis of rock specimens and regional geological mapping. This year the researchers would like to collect hand specimens of rocks for future studies and to look for areas where more detailed studies can be done in the future. Understanding the geology will help geologists map the area, assist m...


Sekwi Mountain Project
Principal Investigator: Martel, Edith
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The objectives of the Sekwi Mountain project are: (1) Provide an updated geological database for a segment of the Mackenzie Mountains; (2) Assess the mineral potential of the area; (3) Assess the hydrocarbon (oil and gas, coal) potential of the area; (4) Provide tectonic model for the assembly of the Mackenzie Mountains; (5) Produce an user-friendly guide to the geology of the Canol Heritage Trail...


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...


Resource Assessment of Emerald in the Northern Cordillera: parts of NTS 1051
Principal Investigator: Falck, Hendrik
Licensed Year(s): 2003 2002
Summary: The purpose of this project is to develop exploration guidelines for emeralds in the NWT. We propose to spend July 2002 in the Lened area, where we will produce detailed geological maps and collect samples for laboratory analysis (whole-rock chemistry, e...


Alteration Study of the Giant Mine, Yellowknife
Principal Investigator: Hubbard, Laura
Licensed Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team will be based out of Yellowknife, and travel to the Giant Mine site by motor vehicle. Detailed geological mapping will occur to enable the research team to understand the alteration and associated mineralization within the mine camp. Sampling of various rock types (ore, mineralized and un-mineralized) will be conducted with a hammer, with specimens collected ranging from 10-20 ...


Geology and Mineral Occurrences of the Ravens Throat Area, Mackenzie Mountains, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Colpron, Maurice
Licensed Year(s): 1997
Summary: The project will be conducted from 10-12 tent fly-camps within the study area. Each camp will be set-out by helicopter (out of Norman Wells) and will be of a duration of approximately 5-7 days. Our work will consist of daily hikes from our camps, during which our observations of the rock types and mineral occurrences will be noted on 1:50,000-scale topographic maps and air photos. Data collectio...
