Principal Investigator:Charette, Matthew Licenced Year(s):
The objectives are to measure a suite of trace elements and isotopes (TEIs) in the active layer and permanently frozen layer of permafrost cores sampled near the Mackenzie River, and to compare these concentrations to those observed in submarine groundwater discharge and Mackenzie River discharge in order to determine whether permafrost-associated TEIs are being transported to the coastal Arctic. ...
Principal Investigator:Hansen, Ken Licenced Year(s):
The study is to continue establishing the groundwater and surface water conditions within the exploration licences prior to and during oil and gas exploration activities.
Surface Water Quality Sample Collection
Collect surface water samples once, during September 2015, from a reduced number of sampling locations targeted near areas where exploration activities have occurred.
The water sampl...
Principal Investigator:Cipcigan, Paul Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the groundwater investigation is to confirm the presence or absence of contamination and to determine the risk associated with contaminated groundwater infiltration into the lake (if applicable). This work will include installing five to six monitoring wells at the site in the area adjacent to the Great Slave Lake. A secondary objective is to inspect the fuel storage tanks located...
Principal Investigator:Blowes, David Licenced Year(s):
This research study is designed to investigate the processes related to water quality and quantity (collected at different scales) draining from country rock stockpiles that are located in areas of continuous permafrost. The quality of water draining from a country rock stockpile is determined by the combined effects of oxygen transport in the air phase, biogeochemical processes that control miner...
Principal Investigator:Nyman, Jeff Licenced Year(s):
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...

Evidence of contaminants was found in soil, groundwater and surface water at the site during investigations in 2008, 2010 and 2011. The objective of the project is to remediate the abandoned wellsite by containing and stabilizing contaminated materials in an on-site landfill, and remove debris and solid waste from the site.
Talisman is proposing a two-year approach to complete the Project. Year...
Principal Investigator:Hamilton, Melissa M Licenced Year(s):
The purpose of each Phase I/II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is to determine the current environmental and physical conditions at each site to allow for the potential future development of the appropriate remediation or risk management strategies and costs. This will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts to all media including soil, sediment, surface water a...

Objective 1: Build a partnership between government, communities, regulators and researchers to develop a watershed-based cumulative impact study in areas of oil and gas exploration in the Sahtu region.
The Sahtu Renewable Resource Board (SRRB) can play an important coordinating role in bringing partners together and working with the communities to determine appropriate engagement in the projec...
Principal Investigator:Livingstone, Steve Licenced Year(s):
The purpose of the Supplemental Environmental Site Assessments is to further determine the current environmental and physical conditions at several petroleum hydrocarbon spill sites along the Canol Trail, and address the gaps identified from the 2012 sampling program. Key findings from these select sites will be synthesized to identify the scope and nature of the spills, potential trends regarding...

The Bosworth Creek Monitoring Project has become permanently embedded in Mackenzie Mountain School’s Experiential Science 30 Program and will continue to provide professional development for local youth through associations with academic and industrial institutions. The project will complete baseline biological and chemical data and investigate new sources of ground water that may be the result of...
