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...


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 ...


Bonnet Plume Basin, Yukon and Peel Plateau Area, NWT Aeromagnetic Survey, Phase V of Mackenzie Corridor Survey
Principal Investigator: Kiss, Frank
Licensed Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999
Summary: This survey will improve public knowledge and understanding of the geology of this area, as no publicly-available magnetic coverage exists. Survey lines will be flown at a spacing of 800 metres and a 200 metre mean terrain clearance (where possible, give...


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 ...


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...


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...


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...


Geology of the Carp Lakes area, south-central Slave Province
Principal Investigator: Stubley, Mark
Licensed Year(s): 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The researchers will examine, document and sample surface outcrops in the study area. The information will be recorded on a map which will summarize the geological rock-types and mineral resources of the area....


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....
