Con Mine Phase 4 EEM - Periodic Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Machtans, Hilary
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2012 2009 2007
Summary: Year one of Periodic Monitoring under the Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM) to determine if mine effluent is affecting fish and fish habitat. A small-bodied fish survey will be conducted within one exposure area (Jackfish Bay, Great Slave Lake) and one reference area (Horseshoe Island Bay). For consistency between phases, ninespine stickleback (NNST) will be targeted as one of the small ...


Caribou impact assessment and monitoring guidelines
Principal Investigator: Lines, Stephen A
Licenced Year(s): 2007
Summary: The objective of this research is to develop, using an ecology based approach, scientifically rigorous guidelines for impact assessment and monitoring of caribou for the Mackenzie Valley Environmental Impact Review Board and Nunavut Impact Review Board (the Boards). This is being done so that the information collected by proponents allows for more reliable differentiation between natural varia...


Investigation of Vittrekwa River Dolly Varden
Principal Investigator: Millar, Nathan P
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The northern subspecies of Dolly Varden char is represented by only five populations in Canada. Of these populations, the Vittrekwa River Dolly Varden has been least studied.
