A large high-resolution geophysical survey will provide additional insight for mineral explorers and development companies interested in the Northwest Territories’ (NWT) Slave Geological Province.

This study, commissioned by the NWT Geological Survey (NTGS), provides detailed airborne magnetic survey data from a promising, yet under-studied region.

The survey measured naturally occurring variations in the Earth’s magnetic and electromagnetic fields which can help indicate potential for the presence of several types of mineral deposits.

Ministers' Statements and Speeches

Mr. Speaker, today there are increasing numbers of women leaders who are working at the local or regional level for the betterment of our communities. But only a handful of women have ever taken seats in this Legislative Assembly. 

Mr. Speaker, it’s time to change that.  Our governing bodies should be representative of the populations they serve, and women make up half of our population. We need more women in political leadership at all levels, but especially here in this House.
