Assessment of the condition of freshwater streams in the South Nahanni watershed
Principal Investigator: Steedman, Audrey
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The main objectives of this research project are to determine if macroinvertebrate community structure and composition is changing over time in freshwater streams in the South Nahanni watershed; and, to determine whether mining activities degrade the health of streams in the South Nahanni Watershed and define zones of degradation due to mining activities. These test sites are downstream of mines. ...


Diavik Aquatic 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: 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 study will encompass the following water based parameters: water quality, zooplankton & phytoplankton biomass and taxonomy, benthic invertebrate analysis and sediment chemistry. This program als...


Predicting post-closure water quality at a mine in Nahanni National Park
Principal Investigator: Stavinga, Drew B
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: 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...


Giant Mine Phase 4 Environmental Effects Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Harris, Katherine M.
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010
Summary: The objective of this study is to examine the health of two small-bodied fish species (Slimy Sculpin and Ninespine Stickleback) exposed to treated effluent from Giant Mine. Data collected during this study will be assessed to determine if there are treated effluent related effects. The study will be conducted within the exposure areas (Baker Creek and Yellowknife Bay) and the reference areas (Yell...


Waste Rock Studies at a Diamond Mine Site
Principal Investigator: Blowes, David
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2005
Summary: This research study is designed to investigate the processes related to water quality and quantity (collected at different scales) draining from country rock stockpiles that are located in areas of continuous permafrost. The quality of water draining from a country rock stockpile is determined by the combined effects of oxygen transport in the air phase, biogeochemical processes that control miner...


De Beers Snap Lake Mine - 2009 Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: McCallum, Dee
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2002 2001 2000 1999
Summary: This license has been issued for the scientific research application #942. The objective of the environmental monitoring programs is to fulfill the requirements outlined under the Snap Lake Mine’s Land Use Permit, Water Licence, Environmental Agreement and Fisheries Authorization and to meet De Beers’ corporate commitments on the environment. The environmental monitoring program will cover a...


2008 Aquatic Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Wen, Marc
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: This research will characterize baseline and post-baseline conditions in the lakes and streams near areas of current and pending mining activity. This will be the 11th year of post-baseline data collected in the Koala Watershed and the 8th year of post-baseline data collected in the King-Cujo Watershed as a part of EKATI’s Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program. It will also be the 10th year of moni...


Water Quality Monitoring Camp
Principal Investigator: LeTourneau, Michele
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2006
Summary: The goals of this research camp are to provide the communities most affected by DDMI’s mining operation the ability to collect and apply traditional knowledge to assess water quality before, during and after mining operations. The specific goals include: 1) to review information on Diavik’s Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program, quality control, site sampling, and chain of custody issues; 2) Learn/r...


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 ...


Close Encounters: Continued Investigations into 19th-20th Century Copper Inuit and European Intersocietal Interaction
Principal Investigator: Johnson, Donald S.
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Project a: essentially fifth year of research (sixth-year if associated work in 2000 is counted), and seeks to continue heretofore successful investigations into the nature, substance and long-term effects of contact between Copper Inuit and Europeans/Eurocanadians in the 19th and 20th centuries utilizing sociocultural, archaeological, and economic methodologies, b. Project seeks to initiate a col...
