Principal Investigator:Blais, Jules M Licenced Year(s):
The research team will develop tools to assess risks associated with legacy industrial developments in a northern setting. The team will investigate contaminants from the Giant Mine near Yellowknife NT, which operated between 1948 and 2004, producing a legacy of contaminants including arsenic, antimony, hydrocarbons, mercury, and others. This remediation strategy only applies to the Giant Mine pro...

The purpose of the project is to work in collaboration with NWT communities to collect water quality data to answer community concerns and questions about the health of NWT waters, to enhance understanding of cumulative impacts and to contribute to decision making. There are three associated objectives:
• To collect water quality data at locations throughout the NWT, to assess for trends in total...

The objective of this research is to investigate metals levels, particularly lead and zinc, and hydrocarbons in soils near the old CN rail bed to Pine Point mine, and Highway 5 to the Tamerlane R-190 advanced exploration site. Specific objectives are to 1) Determine levels of metals, particularly lead and zinc, and hydrocarbons on and adjacent to the old CN railbed; 2) Establish levels of metals, ...

Peel Plateau and Plain is an area with hydrocarbon potential spanning the NWT-Yukon border. A primary objective of this project is to expand geoscience knowledge to stimulate petroleum exploration, industry investment, and economic development for the benefit of Northerners. This is year one of a four year project.
Three geologists will be flying by helicopter out of Inuvik on a daily basis t...

This Beaufort Seabed Mapping Project is designed to assess the environmental impact of offshore hydrocarbon exploration and transportation on the renewable resources of the Beaufort Sea. This project has 3 objectives: 1) seabed sampling using grab sample...
Principal Investigator:Miller, Samantha Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this assessment are to conduct a soil investigation and remediation associated with the flare stack at the Paramount Resources Ltd. F-36 Wellsite. In August 2002, a modified Phase II Environmental Site Assessment was conducted. The bas...
Principal Investigator:Reimer, K.J. Licenced Year(s):
The Environmental Sciences Group has been requested by Indian and Northern Affairs to conduct an environmental study of the Canol Pipeline. The study will identify contaminants (especially hydrocarbons) along the Canol Trail associated with the construction and startup of the pipeline. Where spills are evident, data will be collected on soils, water, vegetation and stream invertebrates to determ...
Principal Investigator:Wielens, Hans Licenced Year(s):
The researcher will look at several outcropping rock formations that are accessible in the NWT. The potential for hydrocarbon generation and storage of these rocks will be the main focus of the work....
Principal Investigator:Macdonald, R.W. Licenced Year(s):
Funded by NOGAP, this ongoing project is addressing the transport of substances to and across the Beaufort Shelf including hydrocarbons, and the ecological processes with which oil exploration will interact. The dynamics of shorefast ice fields, shelf circulation and currents, vertical mixing processes, water properties, plant pigments in the water column and vertical flux of particles over the s...
