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...


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...


Telesiesmic Studies in the Lac de Gras Area
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2003 2000 1999
Summary: The purpose of this study is to investigate the structure and composition of the Earth's crust and upper portion of the earth's crust and upper mantle to depths greater than 200km from sites in the Lac de Gras area. Seismometers will be deployed within two existent mine camps for at least one year. These sensors will record distant earthquakes. Well established technology will be used and once dep...
