Paleozoic rift history of western Laurentia as recorded in Yukon-NWT-Alaska
Principal Investigator: Cobbett, Rose
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective is to use geochemistry (composition of rocks) and geochronology (dating of rocks) to characterize volcanic rocks in order to better understand the environment that they were formed in and in turn learn about the tectonic history of western North America through Paleozoic time (~541 - 252 Million years). Results will be published in a series of Yukon Geological Survey publications, se...


Detailed study of the rhyolite dome and surrounding volcanic rocks at Sunset Lake, Slave craton, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: DeWolfe, Michelle
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This research is focused on increasing the understanding of the geological history of the Sunset Lake area through a detailed examination of ancient volcanic rocks exposed in this area. This work will be conducted mostly by hiking on foot. Zodiac boat with 25hp outboard motor or canoe will be used to reach the start of the hike each day. The hikes will be no more than 2 km from the lakeshore. D...


Geochemical comparison from three Archean greenstone belts across the Slave craton.
Principal Investigator: Williams, Benjamin P
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: Through detailed mapping, select transects, and comprehensive sampling, a geochemical comparison of three Archean volcanic belts in the Slave craton (Northwest Territories) will help advance the knowledge of stratigraphy, and magmatic evolution within each belt. Detailed Mapping: traversing (walking) over bedrock outcrops, examining lithology’s, notes and picture taking, and sample collecting....


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....


Archean Felsic Volcanic Complex Near Regan Lake, District of Mackenzie, NWT
Principal Investigator: Lambert, M.B.
Licensed Year(s): 1994
Summary: The researcher will conduct detailed mapping of the area. The researcher will traverse by foot and a small boat on the river systems. In the laboratory, the chemistry and radiometric age of the volcanic rocks units will be examined in order to determine the relationship of the mineral deposits to this volcano....


Geological mapping of the Avialik River volcanic belt
Principal Investigator: Relf, Carolyn
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: In this ongoing study, the researcher will examine the nature of rocks found in the volcanic belt of the Avialik River area. This work will help to determine the amount of base metals and precious metals found in this belt of rocks. In addition, the movement of rocks (in the past) along a fault line will be examined. Geological mapping (field work) will be done in the summer while analyses of t...


Early Proterozoic Volcanism of the Baker Lake Group, District of Keewatin
Principal Investigator: Peterson, Tony D.
Licensed Year(s): 1992
Summary: The research is part of a program focussed on understanding the Proterozoic intraplate tectonics of the Churchill Province. Petrological studies of the strongly potassic volcanic rocks of the Baker Lake Group are intended to assess their potential as diamond source rocks and to investigate the history of their mantle source regions....


Geology of Takijuq Greenstone Belt
Principal Investigator: Gebert, James
Licensed Year(s): 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The Researchers will carry out geological bedrock mapping of a portion of an ancient volcanic belt. The purpose of the project is to produce a 1:15,000 scale geology map of the study area....


Volcanic Rocks of the Belcher Islands
Principal Investigator: Francis, Don
Licensed Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher and his team will carry out fieldwork which includes geological mapping and the collection of approximately 200 fist-sized rock samples for chemical analysis at McGill University. This work is a part of a three year research project which is designed to evaluate the meteoritic origin of the Hudson Bay Arc....


Geochronology and petrogenesis of the Archean Kaminak Lake Terrane
Principal Investigator: Cavell, Patricia A.
Licensed Year(s): 1988
Summary: to determine ages of igneous rock types in the Kaminak Lake region; to determine the Nd, Sr and Pb isotopic composition of the mantle source of the carbonatite intrusion; to deduce a source region and degree of crustal contamination of volcanic (extrusive) and granodioritic (intrusive) host rocks....
