Toxic Effects of Chronic Arsenicosis in Muskrats and Squirrels from Yellowknife
Principal Investigator: Amuno, Solomon A
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1. investigate the effects of chronic arsenic exposure on reproductive parameters, specifically seminal and hormonal parameters including testicular pathology and os penis (baculum) morphology of small mammals (muskrats and squirrels) inhabiting the vicinity of the Yellowknife area, near the Giant mine, and in a reference location approximately 30-8...

NATCL Cantung 2017 EEM Program
Principal Investigator: Carson, Richard J
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2015
Summary: The objectives are to evaluate if there are differences in biological parameters among study sites and between years at the Tungsten Mine site; as well as to determine whether observed differences from the most recent (2015) Environmental Effects Monitoring study are still present and whether any differences are the result of mining practices. The study objectives are to evaluate fish health, ...

Oxidative Stress, DNA Damage and Bone Metabolism Disruption in Small Mammal Populations Exposed to Arsenic and Heavy Metals in Yellowknife, NWT: A Preliminary Study
Principal Investigator: Amuno, Solomon A
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The first objective of this preliminary study is to monitor in selected small mammal population, specifically the snowshoe hare population the effects of metal exposure on oxidative stress parameters as well as metalothionenin gene expression and genotoxicity (DNA damage and mutation induction). The second is to monitor effect of metal exposure on bone microstructure alterations, including biomark...

Phase III Environmental Site Assessments of Three Sites in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Elliot, Chris M
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: The goal of this research project is to determine the current environmental and physical conditions at each site by gathering sufficient information to develop appropriate remediation or risk management strategies, and associated cost estimates. The project will involve the collection of various types of samples, such as soil, sediment, surface water, groundwater, waste rock, tailings, drum conten...

Phase I/II/III ESAs and Risk Assessment
Principal Investigator: Hamilton, Melissa M
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The purpose of each Phase I/II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is to determine the current environmental and physical conditions at each site to allow for the potential future development of the appropriate remediation or risk management strategies and costs. This will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts to all media including soil, sediment, surface water a...

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...

Giant Mine Phase 4 Environmental Effects Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Harris, Katherine M.
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010
Summary: The objective of this study is to examine the health of two small-bodied fish species (Slimy Sculpin and Ninespine Stickleback) exposed to treated effluent from Giant Mine. Data collected during this study will be assessed to determine if there are treated effluent related effects. The study will be conducted within the exposure areas (Baker Creek and Yellowknife Bay) and the reference areas (Yell...

Old Canadian National Railbed and Highway 5 Soil Sampling, Hay River area
Principal Investigator: Kanigan, Julian
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: The objective of this research is to investigate metals levels, particularly lead and zinc, and hydrocarbons in soils near the old CN rail bed to Pine Point mine, and Highway 5 to the Tamerlane R-190 advanced exploration site. Specific objectives are to 1) Determine levels of metals, particularly lead and zinc, and hydrocarbons on and adjacent to the old CN railbed; 2) Establish levels of metals, ...

Rayrock Mine Supplemental Environmental Site Assessment
Principal Investigator: Wiatzka, Gerd M
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: The Rayrock Mine site has been previously remediated, but additional assessment work is proposed to ensure that the remedial efforts were effective, complete, and in good condition. INAC has contracted SENES to complete a Supplementary Site Assessment, the results of which will be used to determine if there are any residual risks associated with the site and identify options to mitigate those ris...

Miramar Con Mine Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM) Phase 3 Study – Investigation of Cause
Principal Investigator: Machtans, Hilary
Licenced Year(s): 2018 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...
