Reconnaissance Study of Smoking Hills
Principal Investigator: Dunfield, Peter F
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this work is to conduct a one day reconnaissance study of the Smoking Hills area. Mineral, rock, water and soil samples will be collected. Geochemical properties and microbial communities will be analysed in the laboratory in order to characterize any potential features unique to this site that would warrant future, more detailed research. The site will be accessed by helicopt...


Reconnaissance Geology of the South Rae region
Principal Investigator: Pehrsson, Sally J
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2012
Summary: The objective of the present project is to revisit areas last mapped in the 1950s and 1960s, to evaluate the state of existing knowledge and compare it with modern geological concepts and collect rock samples for analysis. This is the field component of a larger effort to update the geoscience knowledge base. New material will be collected by geologists during day trips in targeted areas. Sm...


Great Bear River Site Assessments
Principal Investigator: Geddes, Robert B
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: The Phase II Environmental Assessment is designed to delineate the horizontal and vertical extent of uranium contaminated soil along the Great Bear River portion of the Northern Transportation Route (NTR). The soil quality and quantity information gathered during this assessment is required to assist in the development of future remediation plans for this segment of the NTR. The field program ...


The presence and persistence of arsenic trioxide in soils around Giant Mine, NWT
Principal Investigator: Bromstad, Mackenzie J
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: The objective of this project is to understand why arsenic trioxide (As3+) is still present in soils around Giant Mine, how long it will remain there, and if the set of circumstances leading to persistent As3+-rich soil may apply to any other places previously assumed to be As3+-free. In terms of current mine remediation, future human contact with the site, and ecosystem health, it needs to be und...


2007 Winter Field Geotechnical Investigation Program in the Gwich'in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Hawkins, Jim R.
Licenced Year(s): 2007
Summary: The objective of the field program is to conduct geotechnical investigations on soil and ground conditions at the site of the proposed Inuvik Area Facility (IAF) and along the route of the all-weather road connecting the IAF to the Dempster Highway, in order to design foundations and roads, and for subsequent applications. In order to complete the fieldwork before the spring thaw, an access roa...


Regional Terrain Hazards Mapping
Principal Investigator: Couture, Réjean
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The goal of this project is to compile updated baseline information/knowledge on the types, regional distribution, and controls (e.g. forests fires, climate change) of landslides. The main objectives of the field reconnaissance at landslide sites are six-fold: 1) to validate previous data collected through air photo interpretation and remote sensing techniques; 2) to carry out detailed mapping at ...


Surficial Materials Investigations, South Nahanni Area
Principal Investigator: Menounos, Brian p
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The various objectives of the study are: to refine the previously compiled landslide inventory map with field checking, to identify causal mechanisms to slope instability (such as bedrock or surficial material type, aspect, elevation, glacial history, and permafrost distribution), to identify frequency of landslide types, to examine landscape patterns in the Nahanni karst area to establish relatio...


Inventory and assessment of drilling waste sumps in the Mackenzie Delta of the Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Quaife, Ron
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: This research will help address growing concerns over the use of sumps as a disposal option for drilling waste in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region and is a first step in evaluating the environmental conditions at historic sump sites. The specific objectives of this research include: 1) conducting an inventory of all known specified drilling sump locations within the ISR (including location, last ...


Inventory and assessment of drilling waste sumps in the Mackenzie Delta of the Inuvialuit Settlement Region

Taltson Hydro Project; Expansion Baseline Studies and Water Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Uren, Shane
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: The Expansion Project proposes to supply power to the Snap Lake, Gahcho Kue, Diavik and EKATI mine sites by expanding the existing infrastructure at the facilities on the Taltson River at Twin Gorges and at Nonacho Lake. Studies characterizing baseline e...
