Objective(s): DeBeers Exploration Canada Inc. has conducted a number of baseline studies at Gahcho KuÚ. Local knowledge and technical/scientific research, in combination with a synthesis of existing technical information, is being used to develop a suitable knowledge base for planning, assessment of impacts and development of environmental protection plans at Gahcho KuÚ. The overall project objective is to collect information on the Gahcho KuÚ and 'control lake' areas for use in impact assessment and environmental protection planning for a proposed mine development. Fieldwork will accomplish two principle tasks: 1) collect stream flow and lake level data; and 2) collect surface water quality samples. AMEC Earth and Environmental has been retained to conduct this baseline study. Additional terms for this licence are detailed in Appendix A.
