Great Slave Lake Area Mines: 2013 Sampling Program
Principal Investigator: Wiatzka, Gerd M
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of the 2013 Great Slave Lake Mines Sampling Program is to assist Aboriginal And Northern Development Canada-Contaminants And Remediation Directorate (AANDC-CARD) with its ongoing work to clean up abandoned mine sites across the Northwest Territories. The program aims to collect additional environmental data which will be used to confirm current site conditions and to assist with fina...


PWGSC Gordon Lake Environmental Site Assessments
Principal Investigator: Nyman, Jeff
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this program is to determine the environmental and physical conditions at nine sites on Gordon Lake. This will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts in soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater, and the identification of any hazardous or non-hazardous materials. In addition, samples of biota (including vegetation, fish, benthic invertebrates) m...


Remediation of the Abandoned Panarctic Satellite F-68 Wellsite at Satellite Bay, Prince Patrick Island, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2013 2011 2010
Summary: 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...


Arctic Peatland Carbon and Holocene Warm Climates
Principal Investigator: Beilman, David W
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The research team seek to understand carbon dynamics during warm climate intervals in the Arctic: the Holocene Thermal Maximum (HTM) the warmest pre-industrial interval ranging in timing from 10 ka (thousands of years before present) with maximum seasonality to 6 ka with reduced seasonality, and the Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA) at ~1 ka with similar seasonality as today. By studying peat cores f...


EBA, Five Mine Sites ESA Update and Remedial Action Plan
Principal Investigator: Farrell, Rory
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: To take specific samples for the completion of a remedial action plan and risk assessment for the Five Mine Sites. The field component of the project will be conducted over a two day period. Limited soil and mine tailing samples from the most contaminated areas of the site will be taken. These areas were previously identified in past environmental site assessments. The samples will be collec...


Phase II Environmental Assessments of six sites in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Winch, Susan
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The objective of this research project is to conduct Phase II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) at six locations located within the Northwest Territories (NT). The purpose of field investigations at Caribou Point, Crestaurum Mine, Sun-Rose Claim Group, Thompson-Lundmark Mine, Wrigley Point, and Dome Lake is to determine the current environmental and physical conditions at each site and to red...


Biophysical Baseline Studies in Support of the Izok Project
Principal Investigator: Trusler, Scott
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2008
Summary: The objectives of the research studies are the following: refine understanding of baseline conditions; provide input to design mitigation; evaluate potential changes in the environment in relation to the Izok Project; and contribute to the ongoing data collection of the Arctic environment. The Minerals and Metals Group (MMG) Canada team of environmental consultants will collect and review exist...


Phase II Environmental Site Assessment of ten (10) site along the Canol Trail (NM050)
Principal Investigator: Hadley, Katherine
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: The purpose of the Phase II ESAs is to further determine the current environmental and physical conditions at 10 sites along the Canol Trail and to reduce data gaps and allow development of the appropriate remediation strategies and costs. This will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts to soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater, as well as the identificatio...


Environmental Studies Across Tree Line
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application no. 978. The objectives of this research are to: 1) Monitor permafrost conditions in the Mackenzie Delta region; 2) examine freeze-back of the active layer and associated strength properties of freezing soil; 3) examine the influence of shrub removal on frozen ground and snow conditions at abandoned drilling-mud sumps; 4) inve...


Contaminated Site Environmental Monitoring and Assessment - Indore and Beaverlodge Historic Mining Operations
Principal Investigator: Wiatzka, Gerd M
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) has assumed responsibility for the contaminated sites of the Indore and Beaverlodge (Hottah) Mines and is in the process of characterizing the ecological and human health and safety risks associated with the sites in order for remediation strategies to be developed. The work involves manual sampling and measurement with minimal disturbance of site cond...
