Principal Investigator:Caughill, Dave Licenced Year(s):
Between 1948 and 1951, approximately 375 000 tons of tailings were deposited directly into Back Bay from Giant Mine along the northwest shore via a drainage channel. The submerged tailings contain high levels of metals, particularly arsenic. Over time, t...
Principal Investigator:Landry, Francois Licenced Year(s):
The field work is intended to provide baseline fisheries data for four lakes (Horseshoe, Toss, Fay and Logan) and to obtain post-baseline fisheries data on eight lakes (Vulture, Kodiak, Nema, Cujo, Nanuq, Counts, and Slipper) within the Ekati claimblock...
Principal Investigator:Reed, Shawna Licenced Year(s):
In this study fish presence/absence and/or densities will be obtained by electrofishing representative habitat and the setting of baited minnow traps. When these two methods are not practical gill nets, trap nets, and/or beach seines will be employed. Each fish caught will be identified, measured, sexed and condition will be noted. Ten specimens of each species from each site (up to 10) will be...
Principal Investigator:Seagel, Graham Licenced Year(s):
A study to characterize aquatic environments potentially affected by tailings decant effluent, assess their sensitivity to project influences and develop baseline data for future monitoring purposes. Water, sediment and benthic envertebrate samples will be collected for analysis. Fish will be captured for tagging and to obtain tissue samples for metal analysis (subject to approval of DFO)....
Principal Investigator:Fallis, B.W. Licenced Year(s):
To assess the update of metals by sediments and biota in the vicinity of Nanisivik Mine and the Polaris Mine. The data will be used to monitor the extent to which metal concentrations in sediments and biota have changed since similar studies were conducted in 1980 and 1981....
