Group: Summary

   The Mackenzie Valley Geotechnical Database is a compilation of existing 
   geological and geotechnical data for over 12,000 boreholes that extend from 
   the arctic coast to northwestern Alberta. Additional information on site 
   conditions such as terrain disturbance, vegetation and geomorphology are also 
   included. The original database, compiled in the early 1970s by Proudfoot and 
   Lawrence (1976), contained over 11,000 boreholes. Most of these data were 
   obtained from pipeline and highway related field drilling programs conducted 
   between 1970 and 1975. In the early 1990s approximately 1400 boreholes were 
   added to the database. These data included some of the site investigations 
   undertaken for the construction of the Norman Wells Pipeline Project and the 
   Mackenzie Highway. The Geological Survey of Canada has compiled data for all 
   boreholes into a searchable GIS compatible relational database in Microsoft 
   Access format.
