Stratigraphic Studies, Mackenzie Mountains
Principal Investigator: Fischer, Beth J
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The goal is to examine sedimentary rocks in the area of interest in order to develop an understanding of the geological processes that formed the area. The research team hope to acquire a better understanding of the events hundreds of millions of years ago that laid down the sediments, lithified them, uplifted and deformed them. Of particular interest are the processes of sedimentation across the ...

Canadian Arctic Islands Project
Principal Investigator: Hulse, Peter
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The main objective of our research is to characterize the nature and origin (provenance) of sedimentary rocks which were deposited in the Sverdrup Basin between the Late Palaeozoic and Cenozoic (ranging from around 350 million years to 40 million years ago). The Sverdrup Basin is a succession of sedimentary rocks, which were deposited in an ancient ocean, which largely covered what are today the C...

Provenance of the East Arm basin
Principal Investigator: Ootes, Luke
Licensed Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: The goal of this research is to study select bedrock exposures of sedimentary rocks and determine their age and provenance (source). This is completed by walking and looking/documenting rocks (mapping) and in some places collecting fist-sized rocks samples with a small hammer. These samples are processed at the University of Alberta. To test the hypothesis, a combination of field observations b...

Geochemistry of Paleoproterozoic Granular Iron Formations (East Arm of Great Slave Lake)
Principal Investigator: Pecoits, Ernesto
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: By means of geochemical data on banded iron formation (BIF), and associated volcanic and sedimentary rocks the main objectives of this study are: (1) to delineate the source (continental, hydrothermal) of silica and iron in BIF, (2) to make inferences about the seawater from which these rocks are deposited in, and (3) to evaluate the implications for early life on Earth. This study wil...

Stratigraphy of the Hyland Group, Selwyn Mountains
Principal Investigator: Turner, Elizabeth C
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: This project seeks to understand the ancient marine environments recorded in these rocks, and thereby to interpret this poorly known, dramatic time in North America’s tectonic evolution. The areas addressed will be those that were briefly described in 1993: 1 location is in Yukon Territory (YT) and 2 are in Northwest Territories (NWT). This work will complement licensed research currently under wa...

Thermochronologic approaches for fundamental energy exploration (TAFFEE)
Principal Investigator: Guest, Bernard
Licensed Year(s): 2012
Summary: The goal of this project is to enhance Canada's capacity in the development and application of new methodologies to directly contribute to the development of integrated models of sedimentary basin development and evolution that will inform and guide oil and gas exploration in northern Canada, especially in the three Territories. This summer, rock samples will be collected from the MacKenzie del...

Thematic structural geological bedrock mapping project
Principal Investigator: Bleeker, Wouter
Licensed Year(s): 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994
Summary: The researchers will preform daily geological traverses by foot and by boat with occassional fixed wing support. Proposed products of this project includes geological compilation maps, a collection of geochemical, geochronological, petrological and structural rock samples and computerized data....

Study of Epiclastic and Volcaniclastic Sedimentary Rocks of the Yellowknife Supergroup
Principal Investigator: Bursey, Terry Lee
Licensed Year(s): 1992
Summary: The researcher and his team will study several well-exposed areas of sedimentary stata of Archean age within the Slave Province, Northwest Territories, in order to evaluate criteria for correlation and depositional environments....

Upper Silurian Carbonate Buildups of Southwestern Ellesmere and Northwestern Devon Islands
Principal Investigator: Dixon, O.A.
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992 1990 1988
Summary: In the Arctic Islands, the research will study sedimentary rocks and fossils that were formed more than 400 million years ago in warm tropical seas. It is hoped the study will assist in interpreting ancient environments in more detail, for example suggesting water depths, temperatures and climate....

Sedimentology diagenesis and economic potential of Devonian sediments, eastern Franklinian Miogeosyncline, Bathurst Island
Principal Investigator: Brand, Uwe
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: The Researchers will study sedimentary rocks and fossils that were formed more than 350 million years ago in warm tropical seas. The study helps to interpret the ancient environments and will outline which rock units were most favourable to generating and hosting economic mineral deposits....
