Principal Investigator:Chisholm, Veronica Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the proposed studies is to continue to describe the existing environment, and obtain information once Project activities commence to determine potential project effects.
The proposed studies will include the collection of air quality, geochemistry, hydrology, water and sediment quality, and fish and aquatic resources, dustfall, vegetation and soil information. The studies are...
Principal Investigator:Hood, Alexandra E Licenced Year(s):
To meet regulatory requirements from the Snap Lake Environmental Assessment and under the mine's Water License, Land Use permit and Environmental Agreement.
The objectives of this research project are:
1) to obtain and determine annual variability of the following information in the study area:
•the relative abundance, distribution, group composition and behaviour of caribou;
•the relative ...
Principal Investigator:Fletcher, Alana Licenced Year(s):
The major objective of this proposed 2015 fieldwork is twofold. Firstly, the principle investigator (PI) aims to conduct a comprehensive literature review of the mining- and environment-related materials held at the Déline Land Corporation in order to enrich their understanding of this history as it is understood by the community. Secondly, the PI wants to assist in the creation of a real archive ...
Principal Investigator:Wells, David A Licenced Year(s):2016
The objective of this research is to revisit fixed sample stations at near-field, mid-field and far-field sites over the course of the year in an effort to determine any seasonal variation that may exist and confirm impact predictions.
The AEMP Version 3.5 will consist of the following components; Dust Deposition; Effluent and Water Chemistry; Indicators of Eutrophication; Sediment Chemistry; P...
Principal Investigator:Elliott, Barrett R Licenced Year(s):
The Northwest Territories Geoscience Office in the Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment (ITI) has developed a large collaborative research project to determine the detailed glacial history and permafrost conditions of the central Slave Geological Province.
The project goals are to:
- stimulate the next round of diamond and metals exploration in the Slave Province
- collect permafr...
Principal Investigator:Harris, Katherine M. Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this research project is to collect environmental baseline information for future environmental effects monitoring.
Surveys may include assessments of water (surface and groundwater), sediment, benthic invertebrates, plankton, fish, fish habitat, wetlands, geochemistry, and geotechnical. Equipment for surveys will be limited to standard field measuring and surveying equipment, ...
Principal Investigator:Wilcockson, John B Licenced Year(s):
To collect baseline aquatic data in advance of the development of the Prairie Creek Mine. The study will be part of the Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program (AEMP) and will satisfy the requirements of the federal Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM).
The description below is a summary of the planned methodology. Most work will be carried out on Prairie Creek; however, sampling will also be con...
Principal Investigator:Robb, Tonia L Licenced Year(s):
The main objectives of the field work for 2009 to 2013 will be to determine if the EKATI mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality 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 of spring freshet, ...
Principal Investigator:Sibbald, Carey Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the 2012 Aquatics program is to continue baseline data collection to further characterize the baseline water and sediment quality and aquatic communities at specific lakes within the Thor Lake area and Avalon's Thor Lake Rare Earth Elements Project footprint.
Water, sediment and aquatic organisms will be collected at up to 11 stations (10 lakes) within the Thor Lake area. Most ...
Principal Investigator:Farrell, Rory Licenced Year(s):
To take specific samples for the completion of a remedial action plan and risk assessment for the Five Mine Sites.
The field component of the project will be conducted over a two day period.
Limited soil and mine tailing samples from the most contaminated areas of the site will be taken. These areas were previously identified in past environmental site assessments. The samples will be collec...
