Principal Investigator:Corrin, Natasha Licenced Year(s):
The overall objective of the Tundra Mine risk assessment is to facilitate project closure by determining if there are any residual risks to human health or ecological receptors, including aquatic life, associated with the proposed tailings remediation. If any risks remain, the goal is to provide recommendations for risk management. In support of the risk assessment, and in order to collect baselin...

This project will assess the biodiversity in the Slave and Dog Rivers, NWT, using a variety of collection methods, to support the establishment of baseline biomonitoring conditions, and to explore the use of DNA-based identification of animals, plants and microorganisms. The food webs of these systems will also be described using stable isotope techniques. The project will contribute to the wider ...

The main objectives of the field work for 2014 to 2018 will be (1) to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality; and (2) to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future.
In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week o...
Principal Investigator:Dube, Monique G Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this research are three-fold: 1) to determine the natural variability of benthic invertebrate and fish communities at sites free of human impact; 2) to determine any changes in these due to mining activity relevant to regional variability; and 3) to establish dose response relationships and critical thresholds for stressors including mine effluent, ammonia, a hydrocarbon indicato...

Community Monitoring of the Big Fish River is a new project being led by the Fisheries Joint Management Committee and the West Side Working Group. The project at the Big Fish River will include habitat and water quality surveys, traditional knowledge research and integration, discussions of the implications of changing environmental conditions, and Inuvialuit health and culture, including diet an...

The main objective of the field work to be performed in 2005 is to determine if the EKATI mine is having an effect on its surrounding aquatic environment and to provide baseline data for the area.
Transportation to and from site will be provided by BHP Billiton. The primary form of transportation of personnel and equipment will be via regularly scheduled Canadian North flights to site. Whil...
Principal Investigator:Moore, Peter Licenced Year(s):2003
This project is to meet the requirements of the Fish Habitat Compensation Agreement between BHP and DFO. The purpose of the project is to monitor the effectiveness of created fish habitat within the Panda Diversion Channgel. Assessments will include an e...
Principal Investigator:Hermus, Chelsea Licenced Year(s):
The main objective of the project is to collect fossils of two specific groups of early fishes (acanthodians and heterostracans) to supplement specimens already collected for research projects at the University of Alberta. The field party plans to journe...
Principal Investigator:Currie, Douglas C. Licenced Year(s):
The primary focus of the study is the numbers and kinds of insects that live in the Thelon River at its valley. A previous study in 2000 on the Horton River revealed a number of species that are not represented in Alaska and the Yukon. Collections from t...

Recently BHP Diamonds Canada has "dewatered" a number of lakes and created a diversion channel to re-route water around two open pit mines. The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of the diversion canal as habitat before and after it is enhanced with fish habitat structures and also in relation to natural streams in the area. In early spring Arctic grayling will be captured in we...
