This project will use computer modelling to aid in building a geological model of the earth’s subsurface. The model is assumed to be accurate when seismic data from the model reasonably matches seismic data recorded on the surface of the earth. The movement of wave energy within the model will then be used to aid in identifying hydrocarbon signatures in the real seismic data.
The Diavik Diamond Mine is located in Canada's remote North, 300 kilometres northeast of Yellowknife, NWT. In this project, the intern will collect and analyze samples of Kimberlite from the Diavik property to determine their physical properties. The data will then be carefully analyzed to look for trends regarding new information that could lead to a new Kimberlite discovery.
