NTGO Non-Renewable Mineral Resource Assessments of Candidate Protected Areas, Northwest Territories, 2007-2010

Project Description

The Northwest Territories Geoscience Office (NTGO) has conducted fieldwork as part of Phase II Non-renewable Resource Assessments- Minerals (NRA) of several Candidate Protected Areas as required under the Northwest Territories Protected Areas Strategy (PAS).  This strategy outlines a community-based process to establish a network of protected areas across the NWT.  It recognizes the need to balance conservation and economic development, while respecting Aboriginal rights, third party interests, and land use planning processes (

The following areas were assessed and published in NWT Open Files by the Northwest Territories Geoscience Office (NTGO):
