Tammerlane Baseline Studies
Principal Investigator: Hoos, Rick
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The objective is to obtain sufficient baseline data to develop a lead and zinc mine adjacent to the old Pine Point property. The owl survey to identify species presence and breeding territories in the vicinity of the study area will include an evening broadcast-call program that will commence 0.5 hours after sundown to 0.5 hours before sunrise in April and May. This owl survey will target the Bor...

2006 Aquatic Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Wen, Marc
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The proposed fieldwork is intended to characterize baseline and post-baseline conditions in the lakes and streams near areas of current and pending mining activity. In anticipation of future infrastructure development, baseline data will be collected in those areas. Fish populations of the Panda Diversion Channel (PDC) will continue to be monitored, and compared with the productivity of two nearby...

Environmental Baseline Studies, Tamerlane Ventures Inc., Pine Point Mining Project
Principal Investigator: Moore, Steve M
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: The objective of the field program is to document baseline conditions within the study area to be used for a water licence and land use application towards development of a lead and zinc mine adjacent to the old Pine Point property. This includes completing Ecosystem Classification, Surface Water Quality Sampling, Fish Habitat Assessments, and a Wildlife Utilization and Diversity Study. Field s...

Aquatic Studies in support of the Discovery Mine Remediation Work
Principal Investigator: Ford, Bruce S
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: This study involves fish sampling to determine relative abundance and levels of mercury and other metals in fish tissue in Giauque Lake, Thistlethwaite Lake and Control Lake A, as well as benthic invertebrate sampling and water quality sampling in the three lakes to complement the fish sampling. 3 sites in Giauque, 3 in Thistlethwaite and one in Control Lake A will be recorded. Captured fish will ...

Ecological Conditions in the Proposed Discharge Route of the Colomac Mine, NT
Principal Investigator: McGurk, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The researchers will measure water quality, aquatic ecology and the status of fish populations in ponds and lakes along the proposed discharge route of mine water from the Colomac Mine (North Pond, L-Shaped Lake, Paddle Lake, Lake 315, and Lower Lake) and compare those data with data collected from reference lakes (Steeves Lake, Baton Lake, and Spanner Lake). Work will include taking three samples...
