Cambrian stratigraphy and paleontology
Principal Investigator: Pratt, Brian R.
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: Sedimentary rocks of Cambrian age (~500 million years old) are the oldest Phanerozoic strata in the Mackenzie River valley region and record the spread of a shallow sea over much older strata. The approximate age of these rocks is known via trilobite fossils based on reconnaissance collections made in the 1960s and 2010s. The purpose of the project is to make more closely spaced fossil collections...


Global and regional environmental signals of the Mississippian/Pennsylvanian strata in the Liard Basin Northwest Canada
Principal Investigator: Fedorowski, Jerzy A.
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The principal aim of this project is to examine the settlement, development and decline of the fossil corals as a response to environmental conditions in the Liard region during Mississippian to Early Pennsylvanian times (358.9 to 314.6 million years ago). The study will be conducted against the background of the worldwide expansion of corals in the Viséan age (346.7 - 330.9 million years ago) and...


Sampling of Quaternary glacial sediments exposed in Beaufort Sea and Amundsen Gulf area as a basis for comparison with marine sequences on Beaufort Shelf and Slope
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: This proposed research focuses on the collection of small sediment/pebble samples from known terrestrial glacial deposits at coastal exposures at various locations in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR). These sites each have different stratigraphic settings and existing published interpretations of glacial source and providence. The results from these investigations should enable direct c...


CaHiGeo Caribou Hills Geological History
Principal Investigator: LABROUSSE, Loic
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objectives of the CaHiGeo project are to sample paleogene rocks for sedimentological and stratigraphical analysis and dating; to sample the underlying rocks for correlation with equivalent formations in Northern Yukon and dating; and to measure the possible deformation of the paleogene rocks at the inferred location of sealed faults (Eskimo Lake Fault Zone). The methods used in the field fo...


The Search for Early Fossil Sharks in Lower Devonian rocks of the Mackenzie Mountains, NWT
Principal Investigator: Wilson, Mark V.H.
Licensed Year(s): 2013 1998 1996 1990
Summary: The 2 objectives of this research project are: 1) to recover some of the oldest-known body fossils of sharks and their relatives as well as other associated fossils. The anatomy of the fossil species will be described in detail and published in international journals. These fossils will allow identification of fragments of related species found at other sites worldwide, and will allow the researc...


Cambrian stratigraphy
Principal Investigator: Pratt, Brian R.
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2002 2000 1998
Summary: The principal investigator has been working off and on for many years on the stratigraphy and paleontology of Cambrian strata of the Mackenzie Mountains. This is a critical region of North America because the record of sedimentation on the flank of the continent as it was over half a billion years ago is particularly extensive with little interruption. At the section of interest the lower part of ...


Palaeontology of the Summit Creek Formation, western Northwest Territories, Canada
Principal Investigator: Vavrek, Matthew J
Licensed Year(s): 2012
Summary: The research team will be prospecting for and collecting Cretaceous fossils from the Summit Creek Formation in order to better understand what terrestrial biodiversity was like at high latitudes at that time. This project is a continuation of the collaborative research program on ancient biodiversity in the Canadian Arctic. Recently, the research team completed work supported by Polar Continental ...


Investigation of a possible impact structure on Victoria Island, NWT
Principal Investigator: Osinski, Gordon
Licensed Year(s): 2015 2012
Summary: The objectives of this research are to: (1) Confirm of a meteorite impact origin for the Collinson Inlet structure. In order to confirm the meteorite impact origin of this structure, unequivocal shock metamorphic criteria need to be documented. Shatter cones are the only diagnostic shock effect visible to the naked eye (French and Koeberl 2010). The research team will seek out the potential s...


Environmental change at Duck Hawk Bluffs, SW Banks Island: from a forested to glaciated Arctic
Principal Investigator: England, John H
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: The research team proposes to revisit Duck Hawk Bluffs (DHB), southwest Banks Island, the “type section” for the formerly reported subsurface record. DHB offers an exceptional exposure along the north shore of Thesiger Bay, measuring 8 km long and up to 60 m high. Previous work assumed that the bluffs were composed of an undeformed “layer-cake” stratigraphy recording discrete depositional events ...


Stratigraphy of the Misty Creek Embayment
Principal Investigator: Turner, Elizabeth C
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: This is a Masters of Science research project aimed at understanding the geological evolution of a deep-marine environment that existed in the northern Mackenzie Mountains between 500 and 450 million years ago. This project team will establish small 2-3 person camps on or near a mountainside which is already known, based on previous work, that the rocks they are interested in will be exposed. E...
