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...


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...


Darnley Bay Resources Ltd. 2010 - 2012 Field Program
Principal Investigator: Reford, Stephen
Licensed Year(s): 2011 2010 2008
Summary: The objective of the Darnley Bay Resources (DBR) Ltd. 2010 - 2012 Field Program is to collect additional information on the Darnley Bay gravity anomaly and to assess kimberlite pipe targets. Six field programs have been proposed (geological prospecting and sampling, claim staking, ground geophysical surveys, bathymetric surveys and two drilling programs) and data collected will aid in DBR's interp...


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...


Damoti Gold
Principal Investigator: Hamm, Sharleen
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: Exploration efforts at the Damoti Lake property (concentrating on the Horseshoe Zone) are intended to improve gold-bearing ore estimates at the site. As part of the pre-feasibility work, alternatives for tailings disposal will be studied, including depositing tailings into natural water bodies (Lardass Lake, Unnamed Lake, Pond 1 and 2), and/or using land-based methods, such as thickened tailings a...


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 ...


Teleseismic Studies in the Central Slave Craton
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licensed Year(s): 2004
Summary: The objective of this ongoing study is to investigate the structure and composition of the Earth's crust and mantle to depths of 0 - 300 km from sites in the Lac de Gras area. Methods are being sought to characterize diamond reservoirs in order to make d...


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...
