Lichen Sampling Program - Diavik 2013
Principal Investigator: Wells, David A
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2010 2005
Summary: The aim of this research project 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 consumpti...


Improving Habitat Connectivity to Enhance Productive Capacity of Arctic Freshwater Ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Tonn, William
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of this project are: 1) to study the freshwater ecology, hydrology, and hydraulics of small lakes and streams in the Lac de Gras basin before habitat modification; 2) to monitor the changes in ecosystem productive capacity resulting from habitat modifications designed to increase habitat connectivity and fish passage; and 3) to assess the effectiveness of such habitat modifications...


Miramar Con Mine Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM) Phase 3 Study – Investigation of Cause
Principal Investigator: Machtans, Hilary
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2012 2009 2007
Summary: The EEM will investigate the cause of differences in fish health that were observed in fish from an area exposed to mine effluent (Jackfish Bay) when compared to fish not exposed to mine effluent (Horseshoe Island Bay). Data will be examined to see what environmental factors are causing the observed effects. Fish Program: A small-bodied fish survey will be conducted within one exposure ar...


Quantifying the effects of mining activities on the health of streams in the South Nahanni Watershed (NWT)
Principal Investigator: Scrimgeour, Garry J
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007
Summary: The researchers propose to address critical information gaps by embarking on a research project in the South Nahanni River Watershed. The objectives of the research are: 1) To quantify natural variability of benthic macroinvertebrate communities at reference sites un-impacted by human activity; 2) To determine whether mining activities degrade the health of streams in the South Nahanni Watershed...


Diamond Mine Reclamation in the NWT: Substrates, Soil Amendments and Native Plant Community Development
Principal Investigator: Naeth, M. Anne
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2009 2008 2005
Summary: The objectives of this research are to: 1. Native shrub establishment: Determine the effect of season of seeding/planting on shrub establishment and survival. 2. Effect of microtopography: Determine the effect of microsites (boulders, rocks, soil mounds and pockets) on plant emergence and establishment, as well as how they influence soil structure. 3. Effect of stockpiled topsoil: Investigate t...


De Beers Snap Lake Mine - 2009 Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: McCallum, Dee
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2002 2001 2000 1999
Summary: This license has been issued for the scientific research application #942. The objective of the environmental monitoring programs is to fulfill the requirements outlined under the Snap Lake Mine’s Land Use Permit, Water Licence, Environmental Agreement and Fisheries Authorization and to meet De Beers’ corporate commitments on the environment. The environmental monitoring program will cover a...


Selwyn Project Fisheries Baseline Study
Principal Investigator: Essar, Natasha
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: The objective of this study is to determine fish presence, distribution and abundance in water bodies in the Project area. The age/size frequency distribution, wintering habitat and spawning habitat will be examined, and the metal burdens determined, along with fish presence and distribution along road and bridge crossings. The study will use a combination of methods including minnow traps, fyk...


Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program 2007
Principal Investigator: Wytrychowski, Scott I
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The purpose of the 2007 AEMP is to initiate a long term aquatics sampling program in order to produce a data set that will be used in trend analyses to track the overall effects of the project on the aquatic ecosystem of Lac de Gras and to confirm predictions made during the EA. This is achieved by conducting consistent annual sampling at fixed mid-field and far-field stations for which baseline c...
