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...


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...
