Reclamation of Disturbed Sites Research at Diavik Diamond Mine, NWT
Principal Investigator: Naeth, M. Anne
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2009 2008 2005
Summary: The overall research goal is to determine appropriate methods to restore disturbed sites at Diavik Diamond Mine to productive and sustainable tundra communities following mine closure. There are three main research areas 1) building suitable reclamation substrates for plant establishment and growth, 2) methods of collection and propagation of locally common native plant and lichen species, and 3) ...


Northern Native Seed Development Field Trials
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of this sub-project are: 1) to continue assessing the performance of native plants which were seeded and transplanted into field plots in 2006 and 2007. 2) to establish two new field plots at the Inuvik golf course with the same intent of monitoring native seed performance in a disturbed habitat. The research team intend to collect data regarding winter survival, seedling emerg...


Vegetation recovery at 30 year old oil and gas drilling sumps in the Mackenzie River Delta, NWT.
Principal Investigator: Wunderlich, Nicole B
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: The objective of this study is to determine if the plant community composition of seeded and unseeded disturbances in the Mackenzie Delta is similar to the undisturbed tundra. This comparison may help determine best practices of recovery for native vegetation to use in future oil and gas projects in the region. The vegetation data will be collected using non-destructive methods including species p...


Aurora Research Institute Mallik 2L-38 and 3L/4L/5L-38 Sump Monitoring and Retrofit Program
Principal Investigator: Seccombe-Hett, Pippa
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: The objectives of the sump monitoring activities are to gain further knowledge of long-term sump integrity and sump monitoring techniques while addressing both the commitments of the Mallik Gas Hydrate Project and the recommendations from site surveys. Active layer depth will be measured to determine differences between sumps and undisturbed areas. Ground temperature will be recorded. Ground co...


Northern Native Plant Development Collections in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Seccombe-Hett, Pippa
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: This project has been designed in order to develop technologies utilized to propagate and cultivate native plant species. The main deliverable will ultimately provide a system where-by these species will become available for commercial production and use in revegetation and reclamation in the Northwest Territories. The need for native plant seed for reclamation and restoration has been identified ...


Environmental Investigations for Reclamation Planning at the Tundra Mine
Principal Investigator: Robinson, Cindy
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: This fieldwork is for reclamation planning at the Tundra Mine site. An aquatic survey will be conducted to characterize the current conditions of water bodies adjacent to the Tundra Mine and downstream of the mine's two tailings ponds. A total of seven l...

Summary: Imperial Oil Resources Ltd., Aboriginal Pipeline Group, ConocoPhillips Canada (North) Ltd., Shell Canada Ltd., and ExxonMobil Canada Properties conducted a number of baseline studies during 2001, 2002, and 2003 as part of the Mackenzie Gas Project. These...


Post Construction Water Quality Monitoring and Revegetation and Soil Monitoring for the Liard Pipeline and Gathering Project, Fort Liard, NT and Maxhamish Area, BC
Principal Investigator: Ferguson, Gordon
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002
Summary: This monitoring program is designed to monitor water quality in the Liard pipeline study area and to assess reclamation success and identify areas of concern regarding revegetation and soil loss by erosion. A total of 8 permanent sampling transects were...


Phase 3 Environmental Baseline Program, Diavik Diamond Project, Lac de Gras, NWT
Principal Investigator: Digel, Mark
Licenced Year(s): 1996 1995
Summary: Methods of data collection will include water quality and bottom sampling in Lac de Gras and Lac du Sauvage; automatic and manual water level recordings; bathometric work; automatic weather stations and the monitoring of air-borne particles and visibility; continuation of baseline studies of soils and terrain, and vegetation; fish population, habitat, health, and spawning habits studies; baseline ...
