8 Sites - Phase II ESAs
Principal Investigator: Bandler, Paul
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: The goals of this research project are to: • Identify the physical hazards present at the site and risks posed to ecological and human receptors; • Identify and quantify environmental impacts to all areas including soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater; • Quantify hazardous and non-hazardous materials present at the sites; • Characterize the Acid Rock Drainage (ARD) potential for taili...


Lichen Sampling Program - Diavik
Principal Investigator: Bourn, Stephen
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2010 2005
Summary: The goal of this study is to determine whether dust generated from mining activities is causing a measurable change in dust deposition to and/or metals uptake in lichen closer to and further from the mine. If a significant difference in uptake is noted closer to versus further from the mine, a health risk assessment to caribou may be conducted to determine risks associated with consumption of veg...


Environmental Site Assessments at Five Abandoned Mines
Principal Investigator: Ziervogel, Herb
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: The objectives of this project are to conduct environmental site assessments at the five sites to identify the extent of various contaminations in the soil, water and sediments. A remediation action plan will be prepared for future cleanup at the sites. The field team will use shovel and hand auger to collect limited soil and waste rock samples for lab testing. The lab testing will focus on ...


2008-2010 Baseline Studies for Avalon Ventures Ltd. Proposed Thor Lake Rare Earth Metals Project-Fisheries Component
Principal Investigator: Lawson, Nick
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009 2008
Summary: The fisheries portion of this baseline program has three primary objectives: to identify the fish species composition in a subset of the lakes and streams near the Thor Lake project area, to identify existing fish habitat in those lakes and streams, and to measure the current levels of mercury, rare earth elements and other trace elements in fish tissues. A secondary objective of the program is to...


Socio-economic Study for the Fortune Minerals NICO Project
Principal Investigator: Mitchell, Ross E.
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009 2008
Summary: The objective of the socio-economic study is to collect baseline data to enhance Fortune's understanding of conditions in communities potentially affected by the NICO project. The information will be used to prepare documents required by regulators to make decisions about the project. The socio-economic study may include, in addition to reviews of secondary data sources, key informant intervie...


Phase I Environmental Site Assessments at Nine Abandoned Mines, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Davidson, Scott
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: The Phase I Environmental Site Assessment is a "non-intrusive" assessment, means no borehole or test pit will be drilled on the site and no water or soil samples will be collected or laboratory analyses. The majority of the work focus on desktop studies, by reviewing previous drilling reports, geological investigation reports, environmental assessment reports, claim reports, information at the go...


2009 Monitoring Program of Rayrock Mine Site
Principal Investigator: Robb, Tonia L
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: The objectives of the monitoring program are to ensure that the on-site remediation works remain effective; to ensure that site specific health risks are monitored; and to identify any long-term changes that might be indicative of failures of the remediation works. The above objectives will be met by conducting a geotechnical inspection of the decommissioned mine, tailings and waste dump areas;...


Phase III Environmental Site Assessment - West Bay Mine
Principal Investigator: Wright, Greg T
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: The objectives of the assessment are to collect sufficient soil, sediment and surface water samples in order to characterize the site and to determine areas that require remediation. Samples of the waste rock piles will also be evaluated to determine the potential for acid rock drainage. After the completion of the field program, a risk assessment will be completed to Health Canada protocols in ...


Phase I Environmental Site Assessments of Rocher River(SM169), Little Dal/ Coates Island(SM053), Tennoco Root River(SM034), and HWY #33 KM 508 Drum Dump, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Diplock, David A
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: The overall objective of the Phase I ESA is to identify and document any actual or potential environmental risks associated with the subject properties and provide recommendations for further assessment and/or risk management. The two main goals needed to meet the objective are: 1) Produce a Records Review Report of existing site information; components of the records review will be to identify ...


Phase III Environmental Site Assessment at the Spider Lake Mine, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Ziervogel, Herb
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: The objective of this project is to determine the current environmental and physical condition of the site, in support of the development of a remedial action plan and remediation specifications for the site. On Treasure Island, the field team will use shovel and hand auger to collect limited soil and waste rock samples for lab testing. The lab testing will focus on hydrocarbons and metals. Th...
