North central Slave craton bedrock mapping
Principal Investigator: Knox, Bernadette
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objectives of this project is to update and increase the understanding of the geological history of this area of the north-central Slave craton, Northwest Territories. This work will be conducted mostly by foot with access along the water provided by canoe and zodiac boat. The research team will be walking the land to make geological maps. The team will note observations of the rocks includ...

Wind-abraided rocks near Paulatuk, NT
Principal Investigator: Burn, Chris R
Licensed Year(s): 2002
Summary: The wind abraided rocks 3 km south of Paulatuk are among the best examples of ventifacts in North America. The rocks have smooth, lichen-free surfaces on their south side, which are blasted by sand and snow during strong southerly winds in winter. The re...

The Snare River Mapping Project: parts of NTS 85O and 85N
Principal Investigator: Jackson, Valerie A
Licensed Year(s): 2002 2001 2000
Summary: The Snare River mapping project will define the structural, metamorphic, lithographical and geochemical bedrock characteristics of the area, providing an up-dated geological data base. The mapping team will be flown out by float plane from Yellowknife in...

Structural Geology of the Jackson Lake Formation.
Principal Investigator: Martel, Edith
Licensed Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team will be transported from Yellowknife by aircraft, and will travel by small boat in the field. Samples (fist-sized chunks of rock) will be collected with a hammer, and returned to the laboratory for detailed physical and chemical analysis. Field camps will be low impact, and will be occupied by only 2 persons at a time. All human waste will be buried, all non-burnable garbage w...

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 ...

Central Foreland NATMAP Project
Principal Investigator: Lane, Larry S
Licensed Year(s): 2002 2001 2000
Summary: The research team will resume mapping bedrock and surficial geology at 1:50,000 and 1:250,000 scales, continuing a project begun in the summer of 2000. The base of operations will be either at Fort Liard, or at an existing base camp on the southeastern La Biche River. Fly camps will be accessed by helicopter. Fly camps will be visited by 2-4 crew members for about 1 week. From the fly camps the ...

Geological Mapping 95 C/8 - South Kotaneelee Anticline and 95 B/5 and 12.
Principal Investigator: Currie, Lisel
Licensed Year(s): 1997
Summary: The purpose of the study is to conduct standard 1:50 000 geological mapping as per mandate of the Geological Survey of Canada. This will be in the central Kotaneelee Range. This will involve daily long distance traverse to describe the rocks across the area. Most parts of the area will be visited only once. The research team will be dropped off and picked up by helicopter. During the day they ...

Thematic structural stratigraphic, and geochronological studies of the Slave structural province.
Principal Investigator: Bleeker, Wouter
Licensed Year(s): 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994
Summary: Map and describe the various rock types and assess their role in the complex geological history of the Slave Province. Fly-in / fly-out camps with small airplanes and small campsites to make daily traverses by boat or foot to study the local rocks. Small samples will be taken of interesting rocks; samples are fist sized....

Stratigraphy and sedimentology of Permian and Triassic strata, northern Yukon and adjacent NWT
Principal Investigator: Dixon, James
Licensed Year(s): 1996 1994 1993 1992 1991
Summary: Specific sites will be visited using daily helicopter flights based out of Inuvik. Site visits will last from 15 minutes to several hours and at each site the rocks will be identified and described, the vertical arrangements of rocks will be measured and noted, and samples (about fist-sized) will be taken where deemed necessary. Samples will be taken to Calgary where they will be used either to ...
