NT GoData is a new online application to explore our vast geoscience database collection. Similar to our NT GoMap application (without the maps), NT GoData allows you to search, view and download, free of charge, information from the following databases:
Showings is a relational database containing information on mineral occurrences in the Northwest Territories. Showing information is gathered from mineral industry reports, assessment reports, NTGO publications, and other key publications. Each Showing is cross-referenced to one or more NORMIN References. The Showings database is updated as new information is published or released.
References is a relational database containing metadata on our library of publications in the Northwest Territories. References include NTGO publications, mineral industry reports, assessment reports, petroleum industry reports, and other miscellaneous geological reports. The References database is updated as new information is published or released.
G-Meta is a relational database containing metadata on geophysical and geochemical surveys that have been submitted as digital data in the Northwest Territories. G-Meta is a sub-set of References and includes digital data submitted with assessment reports. Each G-Meta record often contains several survey areas. The G-Meta database is updated as new information is published or released.
Diamonds is a collection of two relational databases containing diamond sample information; KIDD (the Kimberlite Indicator and Diamond Database), and KIMC (the Kimberlite Indicator Mineral Chemistry database) in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. KIDD information is gathered from assessment reports containing kimberlite indicator mineral data which includes sample location and the number of each of a variety of mineral grains found in the sample. KIMC is an extension of the KIDD database, consisting of grain information. For each sample, indicator minerals and their chemical compositions are recorded. The KIDD and KIMC databases are updated as new information is published or released.
KANDD (Kimberlite Anomaly and Drillhole Data ) is a database of publically available kimberlite drillhole data from the Slave Craton, Northwest Territories and Nunavut filed in accordance with the Canada Mining Regulations (initially published as EGS Open Report 2001-005); supplemented by a catalogue of available core and scanned documents made available in NWT Open Report 2003-003; and including all of the publically available kimberlite drillhole data filed with NTGO in the form of various publications (assessment reports, open files, etc.) since 2001 including the extensive catalogue of BHP kimberlite core donated to NTGO in 2009.
Till Geochemistry is a relational database containing geochemical analyses of till and soil samples from publicly available industry assessment reports submitted pursuant to the Canada Mining Regulations. The database consists of over 10,000 geochemical analyses, sample locations and ancillary data associated with the till geochemistry data housed in NTGO archives. The data was converted to digital form and complied in 2004. This represents most but not all publicly available archived material, filed between November 1990 and December 1999. The database will be expanded as time and resources allow.
