Hydrothermal event recognition and vectoring to SEDEX ore system in shale basins, Yukon and NWT
Principal Investigator: Paradis, Suzanne
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012 2011
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to identify some proximal (close) and distal (at a distance) mineralogical and chemical elements that will indicate that rocks in a sedimentary basin are likely or not to be rich in metals. To achieve the objectives, preliminary field work will continue during the summer months of July and August of 2013 and 2014. The field work consists of: - fam...


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 Sekwi Mapping Project is aimed at defining the structural, stratigraphic, metallogenic and geochronological characteristics of the bedrock of a segment of the Mackenzie Mountains. The project will also involve assessment of the mineral, diamond and hydrocarbon potential of the area. This information will provide an updated geological database that will include a GIS-based compilation of bedroc...


Nahanni Mineral and Energy Resource Assessment (MERA) 2
Principal Investigator: Falck, Hendrik
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The objective of this project is to complete a mineral and energy resource assessment (MERA) for the Greater Nahanni Ecosystem. A MERA is a study that tries to estimate whether or not there are metals, gems, or oil/gas in an area, and is required by Fed...


Wecho River Geological Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Ootes, Luke
Licensed Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: The geology of the Wecho River project area, approximately 100 km north-north-west of Yellowknife, is poorly understood and no modern geoscience data-sets are available. This mapping project will define geological characteristics of the area and provide...


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...


Quaternary Geology of the Winter Lake Map Area
Principal Investigator: Kerr, Daniel E.
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: The researcher will be conducting geological field work in the region defined by the NTS Winter Lake Map (No. 86A). The work will involve surveying the land features and collecting samples of the rock and sediments in order that this information can be summarized on a geological map....
