Objective(s): The overall project objective is to collect information on the Gahcho KuÚ and 'control lake' systems for use in impact assessment and environmental protection planning for a proposed mine development. DeBeers Exploration Canada Inc. has conducted a number of baseline studies and the current project continues that. Local knowledge and technical/scientific research, in combination with a synthesis of existing technical information, is being used to develop a suitable knowledge base for planning, assessment of impacts and development of environmental protection plans. AMEC Earth and Environmental has been retained to conduct the 2004 fisheries program. This program will investigate fish movements between the lake and tributary habitats, and between various habitat types within the lake. In addition, a detailed inventory of the tributary lake and streams will be completed. Additional terms for this licence are detailed in Appendix A.
