Diavik Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Wells, David A
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: 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...


Marian Watershed Community-Based Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Garner, Kerri
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The Tlicho Lands Moratorium was lifted in June 2013, and development pressure is expected to increase on Tlicho Lands. As Tlicho Lands are in relatively pristine condition, the intent of this study is to begin to collect baseline data at sites prioritized by community members away from specific project footprints in order to analyze the cumulative impacts of development, climate change, and increa...


2012 Baseline Aquatic Program for Avalon Rare Metals Inc. Proposed Thor Lake Rare Earth Element Project
Principal Investigator: Sibbald, Carey
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008
Summary: 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 ...


Aquatic Environmental Effects Monitoring - Flat River at Cantung Mine
Principal Investigator: Hoos, Rick
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2009 2002
Summary: The objectives of this research are: (1) to determine length, weight, and general condition of 100 fish and tissue analysis of not more than 10 fish (Slimy Sculpin- Cottus cognatus) per site at five site locations in the Flat River: two locations upstream of the CanTung mine site, one adjacent to the mine site and at two locations downstream of the mine site; and, (2) to determine sediment and w...


Con Mine Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM) Cycle 2
Principal Investigator: Machtans, Hilary
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2012 2009 2007
Summary: The main objective of the present study is to characterize site conditions to fulfill specific requirements of federal regulations. These studies will include fish, fish habitat, benthic macroinvertebrates, sediment and water quality sampling. Study areas will include locations both exposed and unexposed to mine effluent. The purpose of these surveys is to characterize environmental conditions ...


Characterization of the reference condition of northern biota and assessment of potential changes due to mining
Principal Investigator: Dube, Monique G
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The objectives of this research are three-fold: 1) to determine the natural variability of benthic invertebrate and fish communities at sites free of human impact; 2) to determine any changes in these due to mining activity relevant to regional variability; and 3) to establish dose response relationships and critical thresholds for stressors including mine effluent, ammonia, a hydrocarbon indicato...


Assessment of Impacts of Mackenzie Delta Petroleum Activities on Aquatic Ecosystem Health, Year 1: Lakes (Parsons Lake Anchor Site)
Principal Investigator: Halliwell, Douglas
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: The objectives of this program are; 1) to characterize baseline water, sediment, and benthic invertebrate conditions in one experimental lake (Parsons Lake) and two control lakes near the Mackenzie Gas Project's (MGP) Parsons Lake Anchor Site; 2) to cho...


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...


2003 Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Teichreb, Chris
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: This work will assess the effects that mining may have on the aquatic environment of lakes within the Ekati claimblock as part of BHP Billiton's Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program. Data to be collected includes water quality, sediment quality, physical l...


The Use of Sediment Data as an Indicator of Aquatic Ecosystem Health in the Coppermine River Basin, NWT
Principal Investigator: Peramaki, Liisa
Licenced Year(s): 2000
Summary: This study will investigate the quality of aquatic sediment and evaluate its potential as an indicator of ecosystem health in the Coppermine River basin. Sediment cores will be collected by boat or float plane at Lac de Gras and Point Lake. The following field measurements will be recorded: water temperature and pH, and sediment colour, texture and pH. In addition, personal interviews will be c...
