Principal Investigator:Smith, Sharon S Licenced Year(s):
This project continues the on-going monitoring program of permafrost and collection of baseline terrain information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor, NWT. This phase of the project is largely data collection.
The objectives are:
1) To provide baseline knowledge of permafrost and terrain conditions (specifically ground temperature and permafrost active layer thickness) and improve characteriza...

The objective of the proposed studies to be conducted at Courageous Lake is to collect baseline data collection is planned to characterize the environmental (physical and biological) and social and economic setting in the proposed project area. Specifically, data collection is planned to characterize the following environmental components: air quality, noise, hydrology, bathymetry, hydrogeology, a...

The objectives of this project are:
a) to take an inventory of historical and ecological/environmental resources in the area;
b) to identify past, present and future uses of the area by community residents;
c) to identify potential impacts from use of land within the land use area; and
d) to provide follow-up mechanism for on-going communication of issues identified.
The principal researche...
Principal Investigator:Duthie, Andrew Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the proposed studies to be conducted at Courageous Lake is to collect baseline data to characterize the environmental (physical and biological) setting in the proposed project area. Specifically, data will be collected to characterize the following environmental components: meteorology, wind resources, air quality, noise, hydrology, bathymetry, hydrogeology, aquatic resources, fis...
Principal Investigator:Corriveau, Louise Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of the Great Bear/IOCG geoscience research and mapping project are to:
• develop a modern geological, crustal architecture and exploration framework for polymetallic iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposit-type mineralizing systems in the Great Bear magmatic zone and new exploration methods for IOCG deposits in glaciated terrains;
• validate deposit-type model for known mineral occu...

This activity will describe and predict the occurrence of discontinuous permafrost in the northern Great Slave Lake region to assist in planning, development and maintenance of community and industry infrastructure. Future changes in climate will affect permafrost distribution, temperatures and geotechnical conditions. It is anticipated that different landscapes across the region will exhibit vary...
Principal Investigator:Lawson, Nick Licenced Year(s):20122011
The objectives of this project are to characterize the baseline water and sediment quality within the Thor Lake area, and to characterize the baseline aquatic community through the collection of phytoplankton, zooplankton and benthic invertebrates.
Water, sediment and aquatic organisms will be collected from 20 stations within the Thor Lake area. Most stations will be accessed by ATV and/or bo...
Principal Investigator:Miles, Warner F. Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the airborne survey is to acquire high-resolution aeromagnetic data. Aeromagnetic surveys measure magnetic properties of bedrock and are one of the tools used in geological mapping. The bedrock may contain mineral deposits, such as gold, copper, lead, zinc, and diamonds. Understanding the geology will help geologists map the area, assist mineral exploration activities, and provide...

The ultimate objective is to determine ways for Aboriginal communities and organizations to optimize their participation in land use planning in the NWT. Ideally this will result in land use plans that will reflect the values and interests of the communities that they intend to serve.
The first goal is to identify the internal challenges and barriers that Aboriginal communities and organization...

The objective of this study is to determine a general inventory of the physical features of the proposed project site, focusing primarily on the terrain, vegetation, and proximity and access to the community.
The Government of the Northwest Territories, Department of Transportation, Airports Division is looking to relocate and expand the Trout Lake Airport. As a result, it is required that a L...
