Con Mine Phase 5 EEM - Periodic Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Machtans, Hilary
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2012 2009 2007
Summary: The study is part of the Phase 5 Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM) program, which is requirement under the Fisheries Act, Metal Mining Effluent Regulations (MMER). The objective of the study is to carry out the second year of periodic monitoring of fish and benthos at the determined study locations; Jackfish Bay (exposure area), Horseshoe Island Bay (reference area for fish survey) and Kam Ba...


NATCL - Cantung Mine 2015 Environmental Effects Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Carson, Richard J
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2015
Summary: The objectives are to evaluate if there are differences in biological parameters among study sites and between years of the Environmental Effects Monitoring study are still present and whether any differences are the result of current mining practices, historical mining practices, or a combination of the two. The design will include studies on fish (non-lethal sampling of slimy sculpin), benthi...


PWGSC Gordon Lake Environmental Site Assessments
Principal Investigator: Nyman, Jeff
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this program is to determine the environmental and physical conditions at nine sites on Gordon Lake. This will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts in soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater, and the identification of any hazardous or non-hazardous materials. In addition, samples of biota (including vegetation, fish, benthic invertebrates) m...


Diavik Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Wells, David A
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: To revisit fixed sample stations at near-field, mid-field and far-field sites over the course of the year in an effort to determine any seasonal variation that may exist and confirm impact predictions. The study will encompass the following water based parameters: water quality, zooplankton & phytoplankton biomass and taxonomy, benthic invertebrate analysis and sediment chemistry. This program als...


Aquatic Environmental Effects Monitoring - Flat River at Cantung Mine
Principal Investigator: Hoos, Rick
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2009 2002
Summary: The objectives of this research are: (1) to determine length, weight, and general condition of 100 fish and tissue analysis of not more than 10 fish (Slimy Sculpin- Cottus cognatus) per site at five site locations in the Flat River: two locations upstream of the CanTung mine site, one adjacent to the mine site and at two locations downstream of the mine site; and, (2) to determine sediment and w...


Enhanced Investigations of the Factors affecting Long-term Contaminant Trends in Predatory Fish in Great Slave Lake, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: For several years, studies have been conducted to find out if contaminant levels are changing in lake trout and burbot in Great Slave Lake. The researchers have been seeing some changes with mercury levels increasing and HCH levels declining in these fish. However, there have been other changes in the fish, especially lake trout which appear to contain less fat and to be feeding closer to shore th...


2008 Aquatic Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Wen, Marc
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: This research will characterize baseline and post-baseline conditions in the lakes and streams near areas of current and pending mining activity. This will be the 11th year of post-baseline data collected in the Koala Watershed and the 8th year of post-baseline data collected in the King-Cujo Watershed as a part of EKATI’s Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program. It will also be the 10th year of moni...


Biological studies of waters along the proposed Mackenzie Gas Pipeline route - Gwich'in Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: While data collected during the Environmental Impact Assessment studies (carried out in conjunction with the proposed construction and operation of the Mackenzie Gas Pipeline) are relatively comprehensive in describing the major physical-chemical features of the aquatic environment, they are lacking in the descriptions of the biological features of these environments, and as a consequence, their s...


Biological studies of waters along the proposed Mackenzie Gas Pipeline route - Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: This study is designed to fill gaps in Environment Canada’s understanding of the aquatic environment potentially impacted by various aspects of the Mackenzie Gas Project (MGP). Potential stressors including: increased erosion, nutrient releases from sewage discharges, other chemical releases, water withdrawals, impacts of barge traffic, increased atmospheric emissions, etc. The focus will be on th...


Aquatic Studies in support of the Discovery Mine Remediation Work
Principal Investigator: Ford, Bruce S
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: This study involves fish sampling to determine relative abundance and levels of mercury and other metals in fish tissue in Giauque Lake, Thistlethwaite Lake and Control Lake A, as well as benthic invertebrate sampling and water quality sampling in the three lakes to complement the fish sampling. 3 sites in Giauque, 3 in Thistlethwaite and one in Control Lake A will be recorded. Captured fish will ...
