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...

The assessment is designed to delineate the horizontal and vertical extent of uranium contaminated soil at sites located along the Great Bear River portion of the northern transportation route (NTR). The soil quality and quantity information gathered during this assessment is required to assist in the development of future remediation plans for this segment of the NTR.
The proposed tasks are as...

The study is designed to assess if the assumptions made during the disposal at sea permitting process were accurate and if the permit conditions are effective in mitigating impacts.
This year’s field work will take place approximately a month prior to ice breakup. Lotek sonic tags (MM -M-16-50) will be firmly attached to wastes in 5 different piles dispersed throughout the disposal site. After ...

Given the threats of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and their widespread appearance in marine mammals and far northern communities, identifying the sources of these compounds and of various PBDE congeners in air, water and soil are of utmost importance. Potential ecological and human health risks, and increasing concentrations of PBDEs in the environment require early implementation of con...

Exploration efforts at the Damoti Lake property (concentrating on the Horseshoe Zone) are intended to improve gold-bearing ore estimates at the site. As part of the pre-feasibility work, alternatives for tailings disposal will be studied, including depositing tailings into natural water bodies (Lardass Lake, Unnamed Lake, Pond 1 and 2), and/or using land-based methods, such as thickened tailings a...

This project aims to address a local concern about the release of contaminants resulting from an enduring fire at the Inuvik dumpsite by complementing the monitoring of Inuvik’s dumpsite for non-standard contaminants, and by reaffirming the drainage pathways from the dumpsite.
Water samples (40-80 l) will be collected from two streams that clear the melt water from the dumpsite area, and the t...

The specific objectives of this research are to determine who is recycling in Inuvik, what portion of the population is recycling, and why people choose to recycle or not. A survey will be conducted to understand recycling experiences in Inuvik. Every 5t...

Field work this year will be devoted to 1) determining the maximum extent of potassium chloride migration from sumps examined in 1997, 2) examine the Mallik L-38 sump constructed in 1972 as one of the oldest sumps in the Delta, 3) examine the sumps in Parsons Lake area where topographic relief has added the potential for salt migration due to groundwater flow. Sumps along Kumak Channel, near the m...

The Environmental Science Group (ESG) has been requested by DND and NWSO to conduct environmental investigations of former DEW Line sites and other military bases in the NWT. Personnel will collect soil, plant, water, paint chips and insulating material for analysis of potential contaminants....

This study will be conducted from Canadian Coat Guard's icebreaker the Perrie Radisson. This study will consist of: a preliminary sidescan sonar survey to determine the distribution of material on the bottom; identification of objects using either a remote operating vehicle or divers in shallow water; and sampling of water, sediment and biota in the vicinity of selected objects. Some objects ide...
