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, ...


Con Mine Phase 4 EEM - Periodic Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Machtans, Hilary
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2012 2009 2007
Summary: Year one of Periodic Monitoring under the Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM) to determine if mine effluent is affecting fish and fish habitat. A small-bodied fish survey will be conducted within one exposure area (Jackfish Bay, Great Slave Lake) and one reference area (Horseshoe Island Bay). For consistency between phases, ninespine stickleback (NNST) will be targeted as one of the small ...


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...


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...


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...


Environmental Effects Monitoring for Miramar Con and Giant Mines
Principal Investigator: Caughill, Dave
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: The main objective of this study is to characterize environmental conditions and supplement existing environmental information for possible use in long-term (i.e., multi-year) Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM) programs as required of the Giant and C...


Effects of Processed Kimberlite Effluent from the Ekati Diamond Mine, NT on Freshwater Zooplankton.
Principal Investigator: Liber, Karsten
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team will be transported to Long Lake by aircraft, and will travel by truck on the mine site. Sample collection will be carried out using a motorized boat. Water and phytoplankton samples will be collected using a 10 L Go-Flo water sampler. Zooplankton samples will be collected using a zooplankton net. There are three taxa of freshwater zooplankton that may be collected from Long ...


Enviornmental assessment/monitoring studies of the aquatic resources in the Lac De Gras area.
Principal Investigator: Reed, Shawna
Licenced Year(s): 1995
Summary: The researchers will be utilizing the following techniques for assessing aquatic biota and fish habitat utilization: gillnetting (various sizes and meshes), trapnetting (mark-recapture program), minnow-trapping and electroshocking (backpack model). A select number of fish will also be retained for aging (using otoliths), tissue metals concentration and diet analysis....


Environmental Monitoring Study - Lupin Mine
Principal Investigator: d'Entremont, Andre
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1990
Summary: A sampling program will be undertaken where sediment and benthic organisms will be collected at six sites sampled in 1985. The samples will be analysed to determine if any statistically significant changes in the sediment chemistry and species diversity and abundance have occurred since the mine began operation in 1985....


Licence #4038
Principal Investigator: Fallis, B.W.
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: 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....
