Environmental Baseline Surveys for the Fortune Minerals Limited NICO Project
Principal Investigator: Schryer, Richard P
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of this project is to complete a Supplemental Baseline Monitoring Plan (SBMP) for water quality, fish population and benthic invertebrate programs. The SBMP contains two major study areas: Burke Lake, Reference Lake and the Marian River. Burke Lake will be the exposure area and Reference Lake will serve as the reference area for the SBMP. The exposure area for the Marian River wat...


Community-Based Water Quality Monitoring in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Beveridge, Meghan
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The purpose of the project is to work in collaboration with Northwest Territories (NWT) communities to collect water quality data to answer community concerns and questions about the health of NWT waters, to enhance understanding of cumulative impacts and to contribute to decision making. There are three associated objectives: 1) collect water quality data at locations throughout the NWT, to ...


Developing New Tools for Assessing Legacy Pollutants and their Ecological Consequences in Lakes Near Northwest Territories Mines
Principal Investigator: Blais, Jules M
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The research team propose to develop tools to assess risks associated with legacy industrial developments in a northern setting. The team will investigate contaminants from the Giant Mine near Yellowknife Northwest Territories (NT), which operated between 1948 and 2004, producing a legacy of contaminants including arsenic, antimony, hydrocarbons, mercury, and others. This remediation strategy appl...


City of Yellowknife Gold Project
Principal Investigator: Campbell, Joseph W
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014
Summary: Follow-up on exploration activity associated with theMackenzie Valley Land and Water Board land use permit MV2014C0005 on Terrax Minerals Inc. City of Yellowknife Gold Project. Work would include initial environmental baseline work, and expansion of research programs to establish sufficient study for possible future Environmental Impact Assessment of potential mine development if exploration activ...


Diavik Aquatics 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 project 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; Traditional Ecological Knowledge, Dust Deposition; Effluent and Water Chemistry; Indicators of Eut...


Discovery Mine (NWT) Year-10 Long-Term Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Montgomery, Shelagh
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The Discovery Mine long term monitoring (LTM) program has as its primary objective to verify the effectiveness of remedial measures at the site. This will be accomplished via a Geotechnical Monitoring and Visual Inspection; Terrestrial Environment Monitoring; Water Quality Monitoring, and Aquatic (fish) Monitoring. As part of the Phase II LTM for the Discovery Mine site, the program addresses i...


Remediation of the Abandoned Panarctic Satellite F-68 Wellsite at Satellite Bay, Prince Patrick Island, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2013 2011 2010
Summary: The 2016 Limited Site Investigations may include a Site reconnaissance to assess Site conditions, conduct maintenance, obtain water samples to determine water resources for the planned 2017 temporary camp, install a weather station, and obtain environmental soil and water samples as potentially required by regulators. The objectives of the Site Remediation Program are to: 1) remove and dispose ...


Understanding the potential impact of rare earth elements in aquatic systems in the NWT
Principal Investigator: McGeer, Jim
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The objectives of this research are to evaluate the relative sensitivity of northern aquatic invertebrates and northern ecosystems in comparison to southern species and environments. The focus of comparisons is in relation to the toxicity of rare earth elements. Approximately 3 to 5 sites will be chosen for detailed samplings and examples could include (Pontoon Lake, Trappers Lake and Tibbitt L...


EL494 Surface Water Monitoring Program 2016-2018
Principal Investigator: Hansen, Ken
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The study is to continue to establish natural variations in the surface water conditions within the Exploration Licence (EL 494) area and monitor potential impact of oil and gas exploration activities. Surface Water Quality Sample Collection: Collect surface water samples once, from a reduced number of sampling locations targeted near areas where exploration activities have occurred. The water...


Continuation of the Gordon Lake Assessment Project
Principal Investigator: Doucet, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The primary objective of this research program is to determine the environmental and physical conditions of nine sites in the Gordon Lake region. This research will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts in soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater. Samples of biota (e.g. Hyalella) may be collected at certain sites during the field program. The potential for...
