Thompson-Lundmark Mine Remediation Project Phase III Environmental Site Assessment
Principal Investigator: Kalinovich, Indra
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5312. The objective of this project is to address the data gaps at the Thompson-Lundmark Mine site. The data collected from the field program will be used to inform the future Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessments in order to achieve appropriate remedial objectives for the site to satisfy the Federal Contaminated Sit...


Freshwater biodiversity spanning contaminant gradient from historical gold mines in Yellowknife NWT region
Principal Investigator: Derry, Alison
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5253. The long-term project objective is to determine ecological and evolutionary processes, and interactions between ecology and evolution (eco-evolutionary interactions), that are potentially limiting and/or facilitating the biological recovery of mining-impacted lakes around Yellowknife, NWT. The objective in the first y...


Arsenic ecotoxicity on plankton in Yellowknife lakes
Principal Investigator: Korosi, Jennifer B
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5180. This project has two objectives. Objective 1 is to identify lakes in the Yellowknife region that show evidence of ecological impairment from arsenic pollution, in order to quantify the ecological impacts of arsenic pollution on Yellowknife lakes at a regional scale and determine which lake characteristics make lakes m...


TERRE-NET: Controls on the Release of Contaminants from Gold Tailings at the Giant Mine, Yellowknife, NT
Principal Investigator: Blowes, David W.
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2020 2019 2018 2017
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5124. The objectives of this project are to: 1) determine the magnitude and rate of release of arsenic and other toxic elements from the Giant Mine tailings to groundwater; 2) evaluate remediation alternatives for tailings management, including the effects of proposed engineered covers; and, 3) apply novel characterization ...


GMOB: Remediation Strategies for the Long-term Management of Arsenic-trioxide-bearing Roaster Wastes at the Giant Mine, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Blowes, David W.
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5123. The overall goals of the four projects proposed within Phase 1 are to provide an enhanced understanding of the physical and geochemical properties of the roaster waste; and, to screen for potentially viable remediation alternatives that may warrant additional research (e.g., long-term laboratory experiments, pilot-sca...


Health Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Chan, Laurie H. M.
Licensed Year(s): 2021 2020 2019 2018 2017
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5010. The Health Effects Monitoring Program is a human biomonitoring study aimed to assess the exposure and health impact of arsenic and other contaminants on the human population of Yellowknife, Ndilo and Dettah in the Northwest Territories, as part of the Giant Mine Remediation Project. The overall objective of the pro...


Giant Mine – 2021 Large Bodied Fish Tissue Program
Principal Investigator: Markey, Andrea
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5013. The main objective of the 2021 Giant Mine Large Bodied Fish Tissue Program is to update the dataset for large-bodied fish tissue chemistry in the area. The fish survey will focus on fish species that are thought to be frequently consumed by people in the area. This work is to supplement baseline data for Aquatic Effec...


Geochemical Characterization and Reactive Transport Simulation of Metal Leaching and Acid Generation in Waste Rock from the Ekati Diamond Mine, NT
Principal Investigator: Blowes, David W.
Licensed Year(s): 2020
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4769. The objectives of this project are to provide critical insights into the potential long-term water quality impacts that may arise from waste-rock weathering; to develop scaling relationships to predict contaminant release, transport, and attenuation in the field; and to inform closure-cover design to mitigate the gene...


Arsenic and mining associated metals in berries and local garden produce in the Yellowknife area
Principal Investigator: Palmer, Mike
Licensed Year(s): 2020
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4829. The objective of this project is to gain a better understanding of the current state of mining related contaminants in local berries and garden produce in the Yellowknife area and to determine the potential risk to human health associated with the consumption of these local food sources. Specifically, this project ...


2020 Baker Creek Arctic Grayling Tissue Sampling
Principal Investigator: Coombs, Matthew
Licensed Year(s): 2020
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4806. The objective is to fish for adult Arctic grayling in Lower Reach 1 of Baker Creek. Baker Creek is a seasonal creek that flows through the Giant Mine site into Yellowknife Bay of Great Slave Lake. Giant Mine is currently in care and maintenance and will be undergoing closure and reclamation activities, which include r...
