Tundra Mine Remediation Risk Assessment
Principal Investigator: Corrin, Natasha
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: 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...


Characterization of the reference condition of northern biota and assessment of potential changes due to mining
Principal Investigator: Dube, Monique G
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: 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...


2005 Aquatic Monitoring Program - EKATI Diamond Mine
Principal Investigator: Muggli, Deborah
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: 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...


Persistent organic contaminants in the Great Slave Lake ecosystem.
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1994
Summary: The researchers will collect samples of sediments from the bottom of Great Slave Lake at sites near Fort Resolution and Lutsel K'e. This data will allow a better understanding of how fast sediments are deposited on the lake bottom in various regions. Researchers will also collect invertebrates and fish samples as part of an overall study of contaminants in the lake's ecosystem....


Study of potential environmental impacts of waste materials in the marine waters near Cambridge Bay
Principal Investigator: Johnston, Laura
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: Samples of sediment, water and different marine species such as fish, marine invertebrates (including sea urchins, clams and crabs), and microscopic organisms will be collected by divers from the underwater dumpsite in Cambridge Bay. These samples will be assessed for contaminants such as heavy metals and PCB's. The study is primarily being conducted to determine if the waste materials of the du...


Canol Pipeline environmental study
Principal Investigator: Reimer, K.J.
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: 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...
