Evidence of contaminants was found in soil, groundwater and surface water at the site during investigations in 2008, 2010 and 2011. The objective of the project is to remediate the abandoned wellsite by containing and stabilizing contaminated materials in an on-site landfill, and remove debris and solid waste from the site.
Talisman is proposing a two-year approach to complete the Project. Year...
Principal Investigator:Stavinga, Drew B Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this project will be (1) to characterize the geochemistry of the Prairie Creek paste backfill, (2) identify whether the cement binder reduces potential for oxidation, (3) examine the site specific conditions of the backfill within the underground mine workings, (4) identify the potential for chemical reaction between the wall rock and backfill and possible impacts, and (5) evalua...
Principal Investigator:Bird, Sam P Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this research project is to collect supplementary soil and water samples to further delineate areas of the site affected by hydrocarbons, metals and salinity and to assess area for possible impacts where infrastructure has been removed.
Soil samples will be collected with hand tools and placed in ziplock bags to roughly measure hydrocarbons while in the field and into glass ja...
Principal Investigator:Sampson, Jack Licenced Year(s):
The purpose of this project at the Tuktoyaktuk Base Camp is to sample soil, surface water and groundwater in the area; sample and characterize materials in Seacans; investigate and characterize landfill waste; investigate soil impact, residual fluids in tanks, and potential historical spill areas – as well as inspect the docks and assess the condition of infrastructure. Imperial Oil intends to dec...
Principal Investigator:Stone, Larry Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this assessment is to examine the quality of groundwater and surface water in the Pointed Mountain Gas Field in conjunction with the decommissioning of the gas field. Groundwater sampling will occur at 5 well sites, 1 plant site, and the airstrip.
All equipment used and waste generated will be transported out of the sites each day. Transportation will be by helicopter and truck...

This research program is a continuation of the environmental assessment of the existing conditions at and near the Port Radium site. Information collected during this study will add to the base of existing information and aid in refining the final decommissioning plan for the site.
The work will be done through manual sampling and measurement; no heavy equipment or drills will be used. Sampling...
Principal Investigator:MacNeill, Scott W Licenced Year(s):
This 5-day sampling program will involve fisheries, aquatic, and vegetation studies at/in the vicinity of the abandoned Port Radium Mine site. Concentrations of five biologically significant metals (antimony, arsenic, lead, nickel and zinc) will be dete...
Principal Investigator:Kershaw, G. Peter Licenced Year(s):20022001
The main objectives of this study are to: 1. determine the status of permafrost land forms in the study area, and 2. determine the long-term recovery after abandonment of the CANOL No.1 project. Access during the summer is via the Yukon along the Canol Road through Macmillan Pass. Base camp is owned by Old Squaw Lodge at Camp 222. Beyond the base camp mountain bikes and foot will be the means ...
Principal Investigator:Raillard, Martin Licenced Year(s):
This project will take place in Tuktuk Nogait National Park in 1998 and 1999. The objective of the project is to map the vegetation of the park. As many areas of the Park as possible will be hiked and the various vegetation communities along the hiking route will be put into one of several classes, and their exact geographical location recorded. Once the field season is over, these various geograp...
Principal Investigator:Dyke, Larry Licenced Year(s):1998
This project is intended to determine the amount by which fluids disposed of in abandoned oil well drilling mud disposal pits (sumps) have migrated into surrounding frozen ground. The sumps are not presently considered to pose any kind of environmental hazard but they do offer a unique opportunity to determine the effectiveness of permafrost as a containment for waste fluids. The main activity i...
