The objective of this research is to analyze the way women's labor in Yellowknife (both paid and unpaid labor, including care for children and family members) has changed as a result of diamond mining. Related, it will explore the way relations within families may or may not have shifted, and the ways the nature of violence against women in Yellowknife may or may not have shifted as a result of th...

Research goal is to understand how changes in the seasons, particularly the shortening of winter, might impact the economics of the North. In Canada the researcher will focus on the impact of ice road seasons on diamond mining. Research activities will mainly be to observe how environmental data are collected in the field, how they are utilized by regulatory agencies to make decisions, and how bu...

The aim of this Master’s-level research project is to document local community members’ experiences in relation to diamond mining. The project will entail evaluating the perspectives of the residents of Fort Smith to understand the positive and negative effects of diamond mining on the lives of local people.
Approximately twenty community members will be initially interviewed. Based on recomme...

The research team will be transported to Long Lake by aircraft, and will travel by truck on the mine site. Sample collection will be carried out using a motorized boat. Water and phytoplankton samples will be collected using a 10 L Go-Flo water sampler. Zooplankton samples will be collected using a zooplankton net. There are three taxa of freshwater zooplankton that may be collected from Long ...

The Coppermine River basin has significant mineral resources including diamonds as well as base and precious metals. In the early 1990s, the Slave Geological Province experienced a dramatic increase in mining activity when diamonds were discovered in the middle of the West Kitikmeot/Slave area at Lac de Gras. Northern ecological systems are particularly at risk to impacts of mining and other land...

As part of overall reclamation goals of BHP, the 1996 season will focus on three components. Vegetation response will be assessed in August using the point-frame method. Within the legume, indigenous seed and shrub cutting plots, plant density will be recorded. Soil samples in replicates of three will be collected from each treatment to analyze physical and chemical characteristics. Secondly, ...
