Environmental Baseline Surveys of the Fortune Minerals Ltd. NICO Project
Principal Investigator: Harris, Katherine M.
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of this research project is to collect baseline environmental information for future environmental effects monitoring. Surveys may include assessments of fish, fish habitat, benthic invertebrates, plankton, water and sediment quality, wetlands and geochemistry. Equipment for surveys will be limited to standard field measuring and surveying equipment, such as automated water qualit...


La Martre River Fall Fisheries Program
Principal Investigator: Cote, Jason E
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: Fieldwork is required to determine the potential effects of a ramping event (sudden shutdown of the power generation facility) on fish and fish habitat within the lower reaches of the La Martre River. This information would be added to the overall fish and fish habitat effects assessment and will identify potential mitigation measures, if required. Specific objectives of the field program includ...


Biological Studies of Waters Along the Proposed Mackenzie Gas Project Pipeline Route - Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: This license has been issued for the scientific research application #837. This study is designed to examine lakes possibly affected by the proposed Mackenzie Gas Project pipeline, and lakes that can serve as future control/reference sites. The researchers will measure the following: nutrients and metals in lake water and sediments, lake water quality (DO, pH, conductivity, etc.), and benthic i...


Biological Studies of Waters Along the Proposed Mackenzie Gas Project Pipeline Route - Gwich'in Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: This licence is issued for the scientific research application # 835. This research will examine lakes possibly affected by the proposed Mackenzie Gas Project pipeline, and lakes that can serve as future control/reference sites. Measurements of nutrients and metals in lake water and sediments, lake water quality (DO, pH, conductivity, etc.), and benthic invertebrate and plankton abundance/spec...


Biological Studies of Waters Along the Proposed Mackenzie Gas Project Pipeline Route - Sahtu Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: The research will examine streams possibly affected by the proposed Mackenzie Gas Project pipeline, and streams that can serve as future control/reference sites. Measurements of stream nutrients, metals in stream water, water quality (DO, pH, conductivity, etc.), stream characteristics (flow, width, depth, etc.) and aquatic invertebrate abundance/species composition will be completed. Possible t...


Aquatic and Fisheries Assessments for a Minimum Flow Threshold for Trudel Creek
Principal Investigator: Uren, Shane
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of the proposed work is to collect information on the fish community and fish habitat present in Trudel Creek, and identify the possible positive and negative impacts of reducing flow into the creek if the Taltson Hydro Project is expanded. The field survey of the fish habitat and community of Trudel Creek and a section of the Taltson River will take place in spring, with the poss...


Population abundance and vital rates of fish harvested from lakes along the Mackenzie Valley pipeline route: Yeltea Lake 2006
Principal Investigator: Tallman, Ross F
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: This study involves the assessment of valued fishes in lakes along the proposed Mackenzie Pipeline route. There is little information on fish populations in any of the smaller inland lakes of the region. Through community consultation in Fort Good Hope it was determined that Yeltea Lake should be studied. Yeltea Lake is utilized by residents for sustenance (containing lake trout, broad whitefish, ...


Distribution and Habitat Use of Sensitive Fish Species along the Mackenzie River Valley
Principal Investigator: Mochnacz, Neil
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The Mackenzie Gas Pipeline will cross more than 600 tributaries of the Mackenzie River, ranging from small (< 1 m) vegetated swales to large rivers. All construction methods, with the exception of trenchless drilling, will disturb the bed and banks of the rivers they cross. Fish habitat use and distribution has not been studied in sufficient detail. Fish will be captured and identified for spec...


Community-Based Monitoring Camps
Principal Investigator: LeTourneau, Michele
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2006
Summary: The community-based monitoring camp was created by Diavik to involve Aboriginal Peoples of communities affected by the mine site. People are concerned with effects on fish, water and caribou. Dust from the mine falls out on lichen and water, which are then consumed by caribou and fish. People will gather information about Diavik and environment-related issues and provide input and recommendations ...


WO Diamond Project
Principal Investigator: Hamm, Sharleen
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: In view of Peregrine Diamonds Ltd.’s move to advance the DO-27 kimberlite pipe of the WO Diamond Project to the pre-feasibility assessment phase, this project is proposed to collect baseline data that would contribute to an Environmental Assessment in subsequent years. Gartner Lee Ltd has been contracted to undertake field sampling, which will consist of examining surface water quality; hydrology;...
