Welcome to the Northwest Territories Geological Survey (NTGS) Web Applications Beta Release More

OVERVIEW

x

The Northwest Territories Geological Survey (NTGS) has developed 8 web applications (NTGS Web Apps) that provide access to geoscience databases in tabular and spatial views within a definable operational context (*). The applications, (and, where applicable, associated databases and current data volumes) are presented below.

To use an application, close this panel and click the application icon, or click on
"More"
for a brief introduction on using the application.

REFERENCES

x

The References Application searches a database of geoscience publications and reports such as NWT Open Files/Reports, Mineral Exploration Assessment reports and theses.

Types of Searchable References in the NTGS database

References each have a Type and an Identification Number. The format of the Number depends on the Type. The format used for a given Type is explained in the Number Format column below. Each lower case letter in the Number Format represents a number, date, or initial, as explained in brackets. The lower case y repeated four times (yyyy) is not explained in brackets since it always means a 4-digit year (eg. 1962). Dots following a lower case letter (n....) indicate that the number of characters represented by the letter is not restricted, whereas a lower case letter repeated a number of times, indicates that only that many characters are allowed. Each upper case letter and each dash represents itself - i.e. it is typed in the Number field for a reference exactly as it appears in the Number Format.

Mineral Showings (potential economically-viable mineral occurrences) database More

SHOWINGS

x

Mineral Showings are indicators of potential economically-viable mineral occurrences and were gathered from industry reports, regulatory assessment reports, and other NTGS publications. The Showings App searches and downloads information on mineral showings from a database of records.

Minimum Commodity Grades for Mineral Showings

For a Showing to be included in the showings database, at least one commodity must have been detected in an amount above the minimum listed below, either in bedrock or (in the case of placers, for example) in the material which would constitute the ore if the deposit were minable. If a showing is defined for one commodity, another commodity may be listed as anomalous if it has been detected in an amount above or equal to a second assigned value, its 'As a By-Product' minimum.

Geophysical Survey Metadata database More

GEOPHYSICS

x

Documents related to Geophysical Surveys of the Northwest Territories are received by NTGS from third parties as publically releasable digital data. Included are digital data submitted with assessment and other reports. The records, which currently number , are updated as new information is published or released and may contain several survey areas.
Search Options:

The Geophysical Survey Metadata database can be searched in nine ways:

As illustrated below, searches can be by: Keywords, Reference No, Author, company, etc. The Area of Interest (AOI) option provides a way to search spatially. The user draws a polygon on the map and clicks 'apply' which prompts the application to search and return a list of all geophysical surveys that intersect the user-drawn polygon.

  2. An ESRI Shapefile (.shp)
  3. A Google Earth file (.kmz)
  4. A Comma Separated Value file (.csv)

(*) This means that data required for business, scientific or government projects can be extracted by user-defined, user-uploaded, or default Areas of Interest (AOIs) such as Canada's National Topographic Series (NTS), land use/tenure blocks or administrative boundaries.
