2017 Tarsuit Caissons Removal Program
Principal Investigator: Clarke, Kim P
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective of this project is to refloat and remove the Tarsuit Caissons from Lease Area 117/D11-3-7. Following their removal, the research team will conduct the following evaluation of the affected site and adjacent area: 1) Side Scan Survey 2) Macro invertebrate Survey A sidescan/multibeam unit (Edgetech 6205, or similar) will be pole mounted on the bathymetry vessel and data will be col...


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...


EKATI Engineering and Environmental Monitoring Programs
Principal Investigator: Lee, Claudine
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: 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...


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...

Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: 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...


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...


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...


Licence #1880
Principal Investigator: Tripp, Derek
Licenced Year(s): 1975
Summary: To determine the number of fish likely to be disturbed by water fluctuations, to study the relationship between fish, invertebrated and water quality, and to determine the causes of any fluctions for C.A.G.S.L....
