Petrogenesis of the Acasta Gneiss Complex: Ancient Rocks Revisited
Principal Investigator: Reimink, Jesse R
Licensed Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011
Summary: The present study aims to obtain information with the following objectives: 1) further describe, sample, and document field relationships and structures present in areas that were sampled and found to be significantly old (>3.8 billion years); 2) explore and sample other units which based on field relationships and mineralogy are likely to be as old or older than previously documented samples; and...

Late Proterozoic stratigraphy of northwestern Canada and its record of Earth system evolution
Principal Investigator: Halverson, Galen P
Licensed Year(s): 2014 2011
Summary: The objectives of this study are: 1. to improve the geological, tectonic, and geochemical constraints on the emplacement of ca. 780 Ma Little Dal Basalt and associated sill and dikes and the deposition of the overlying Coats Lake Group; and 2. to improve correlation between the Little Dal Group and similar-aged strata in the Yukon Territory in order to under the origin and geometry of this sedim...

Stratigraphic and paleontological reconnaissance of Devonian geology, Hay River area, NWT
Principal Investigator: Schneider, Christie L
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: This year, the research purpose is to investigate potential geological localities for work next year, so direct involvement with local communities and guides will be minimal. The researcher intends to identify and talk with people who have outfitting and guide businesses, and those who have knowledge of potential research areas for next summer’s research. The objectives of the proposed researc...

Sedimentology and Stratigraphy of Middle Devonian Carbonates in the Great Slave Lake District, NWT
Principal Investigator: Corlett, Hilary J.
Licensed Year(s): 2008
Summary: This licence is issued for the scientific research application #441. The objective of this field work is to measure and map the Lonely Bay Formation and Chinchaga Formation in outcrop. This information will then be used to interpret vertical and lateral relationships between the two formations seen in drill cores. The research will consist of examining 6 outcrops (4 road accessible and 2 ac...

Central Mackenze Geological Field Program 2007
Principal Investigator: Millman, Peter M
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of the program is to observe surface geological features and document these observations. From a geological perspective the objective of the project is to complete a reconnaissance of the Cambrian and Proterozoic sections in 4 areas. Field operations will take approximately 6 days to complete. The project team will mobilize by helicopter daily from Norman Wells for the western...

Regional Geoscience Studies & Petroleum Potential of the Peel Plateau and Plain, Northwest Territories & Yukon
Principal Investigator: Jones, Adrienne
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006 2005
Summary: The Peel Plateau and Plain is a region of under-explored hydrocarbon potential. Bedrock mapping and exploration drilling was done in the 1960s. The objective of this project is to improve knowledge of regional geology, including stratigraphy; correlation, depositional and tectonic histories; basin evolution; and petroleum geology and potential. Reconnaissance work will be conducted in the Peel Pla...

Glaciological Investigations in the Ragged Range
Principal Investigator: McCarthy, Daniel P
Licensed Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The objectives of this study are to: 1) inventory the size and morphometry of glaciers in the Ragged Range; 2) find and document geological and botanical evidence of former glacier activity; 3) develop a chronology for Holocene glacier activity in the Ragged Range; and, 4) develop one or more growth curves for lichens growing on carbonate and/or silicate rocks. Also, the field reconnaissance and b...

Search for Springs Reported by McConnell in 1890
Principal Investigator: Grasby, Stephen
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: This project is a continuation of work begun in 2004. The researchers were not able to do their field work in 2004, and will try again in 2005. Historic mention is made of springs at Windy Point on the north shore of Great Slave Lake. The research team...

National Museum of the American Indian Cardinal Direction Markers Project
Principal Investigator: Pepper Henry, James
Licensed Year(s): 2003
Summary: The goal of this project is to collect a sample of the Acasta Gneiss from the Slave Craton to be used to represent the peoples and indigenous communities of Canada on the grounds of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of the American Indian in...

Collaborative Research: A Sequence, Chemo- and Biostratigraphic Study of Late Early Cambrian Rocks, Southern Selwyn Basin, Mackenzie Mountains, NWT
Principal Investigator: Pope, Michael
Licensed Year(s): 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The Early Cambrian is an important time in Earth history for it records the widespread radiation of animals during significant climatic, sea level, and tectonic changes. This project will be a stratigraphic, geochemical, and paleontological study of high...
