Summary: The scope of environmental studies to be undertaken includes fish and fish habitat, water quality, air quality, and vegetation surveys. Equipment for habitat surveys will be limited to standard field measuring and surveying equipment, such as GPS units, and helicopters. An automated meteorological station has been set up to collect weather data. A summer and fall fish and fish habitat survey w...

Damoti Gold
Principal Investigator: Hamm, Sharleen
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: 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...

Principal Investigator: Machtans, Hillary
Licenced Year(s): 1999
Summary: The purpose of this study is to collect information about a variety ecosystems crossed by or in close proximity to the potential routes for a proposed pipeline. Fisheries and water quality studies will involve a survey of fish habitat, and of the water quality of any water bodies allong the proposed routes. Any fish collection will be outlined by Department of Fisheries and Oceans research permits...

Gazelle Lake and Point Lake Preliminary Baseline Study
Principal Investigator: Bryant, Wayne
Licenced Year(s): 1998
Summary: The Gazelle environmental baseline study will include specific investigations on water/sediment quality, lake bathymetry, limnology, catchment hydrology, fisheries and fish habitat assessment. Field data collection and observations will take about two to three days. Field staff of 3 will be transported by air to Ekati from Yellowknife. From Ekati, helicopter transport will be used to drop off the...
