The Geological Survey of Canada of Natural Resources Canada conducted a major field program between 2005 and 2007 to address gaps in baseline environmental information in the Mackenzie Valley associated with proposed transportation and resource development corridors. A total of 43 boreholes were drilled in the Mackenzie corridor south of Fort Good Hope and 33 of these holes were preserved and instrumented with temperature cables. Geotechnical information and initial ground temperature data from these boreholes has been compiled in a relational database presented in MS Access format and as ASCII text files. Graphic presentations of the data are also provided along with information on site characteristics and photographs. The baseline information provided meets the needs of a number of users including those involved in planning northern development, infrastructure design and the regulatory process.
