Wecho River Geological Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Ootes, Luke
Licensed Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of this mapping project is to define the structural, metamorphic, lithological and geochemical bedrock characteristics of the area, and provide this information in an updated geological database. This is the second year of a two-year projec...


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...


Carbonate-Hosted Lead-Zinc (Mississippi Valley Type) Occurrences in Northern Alberta and Southern Northwest Territories.
Principal Investigator: Turner, William
Licensed Year(s): 2002 2001
Summary: Transport of the research team to sites will be by truck, contingent on road access. Tent camps will be established for housing in the field. The camp will consist of 2 researchers, for the months of August and September, with possible sporadic visits by other researchers throughout the summer. Field activities will involve examining and documenting lead-zinc occurences, and collecting lead-zi...


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 ...


Baseline Limnology Program, Kennady Lake 2001 Environmental Program
Principal Investigator: Lawson, Nick
Licensed Year(s): 2001
Summary: The objectives of the research team are to collect baseline environmental information on the DeBeers Canada Exploration Ltd. project at Kennady Lake, to assist with the current environmental management of the property and prepare for an assessment of the environmental effects of potential future development of the site. Three field visits to Kennady Lake will be completed during the summer of 200...


Structural and Geochemical Study of the Crestaurum Gold Deposit, Yellowknife Volcanic Belt, NWT.
Principal Investigator: Ootes, Luke
Licensed Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team will be based out of Yellowknife. Travel to the Crestaurum Mine site will be by road; travel on site will be by foot. Detailed geological mapping will be carried out by gathering fist-sized samples of rock with a hammer, or rock saw. Both mineralized (ore-bearing) and un-mineralized samples will be collected. Samples will then be returned to the laboratory for further, detail...


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...
