Reconnaissance Study of Smoking Hills
Principal Investigator: Dunfield, Peter F
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this work is to conduct a one day reconnaissance study of the Smoking Hills area. Mineral, rock, water and soil samples will be collected. Geochemical properties and microbial communities will be analysed in the laboratory in order to characterize any potential features unique to this site that would warrant future, more detailed research. The site will be accessed by helicopt...

Beaufort Sea Coastal Geoscience Research 2013
Principal Investigator: Whalen, Dustin JR
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The primary objective of this research is to ensure safe and sustainable industrial and community development by improving the understanding of coastal and nearshore seabed processes and properties. The research provides the means to improve the knowledge of physical conditions in the coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations, and local residents understand, mitigate and redu...

The cumulative impacts of rapid environmental change in the northwestern NWT: Investigating the impacts of mega-slump disturbances on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in the lower Peel watershed, NW
Principal Investigator: Lacelle, Denis
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: This is a multidisciplinary project involving communities, governments and academic researchers. The goals are to : 1) inventory and track broad scale changes in landscape disturbances; 2) determine the impacts of natural and anthropogenic disturbances on the physical and chemical characteristics and ecology of streams and rivers; 3) determine disturbance thresholds relevant to the health of strea...

An investigation of arsenic speciation and toxicity in Baker Creek sediments from Giant Mine in the Northwest Territories, Canada
Principal Investigator: Nash, Tyler J
Licensed Year(s): 2012
Summary: The objective of this research project is to assess the sediment quality of Baker Creek. This will be achieved by analyzing factors influencing arsenic mobility from sediments to overlying water and assessing the toxicology of the sediments using exposure tests on indicator organisms. Core samples of Baker Creek sediments will be taken by the researchers using aluminum pipes driven into the gro...

Tuk Base Demolition Supplementary Sampling
Principal Investigator: Bird, Sam P
Licensed Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objective of this research project is to collect supplementary soil and water samples to further delineate areas of the site affected by hydrocarbons, metals and salinity and to assess area for possible impacts where infrastructure has been removed. Soil samples will be collected with hand tools and placed in ziplock bags to roughly measure hydrocarbons while in the field and into glass ja...

2011 Baseline Studies for Avalon Rare Metals Inc. Proposed Thor Lake Rare Earth Element Project - Aquatics and Fisheries
Principal Investigator: Lawson, Nick
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008
Summary: The objective of the 2011 Aquatics program is to continue baseline data collection to further characterize the baseline water and sediment quality and aquatic communities at specific lakes within the Thor Lake area and Avalon's Thor Lake Rare Earth Elements Project footprint. The 2011 Fisheries program will focus on the lakes directly affected by and immediately downstream of the proposed Tailings...

Geological conditions affecting industrial and community development in the coastal and nearshore regions of the western Canadian Arctic - year 4/4
Principal Investigator: Solomon, Steven M
Licensed Year(s): 2010 2009 2008 2007
Summary: The western Arctic coast is among the most rapidly changing coastlines in the world and one of the most sensitive to climate change. The objective is to improve knowledge of physical conditions in the coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations, and local residents understand, mitigate and reduce the impacts of natural changes and industrial or community development. Spring...

ArcticNet: an Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into region...

2009 Baseline Studies for Avalon Ventures Ltd. Proposed Thor Lake Rare Earth Metals Project – Groundwater Hydrology and Hydrogeology
Principal Investigator: Lennie-Misgeld, Peter
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: The baseline study is being conducted to aid Avalon Ventures in assessing potential environmental effects of its activities and having adequate environmental information to support filing of regulatory applications in the future. Two years of data collection is important for obtaining baseline ground water hydrology and quality data where seasonal changes in groundwater levels, recharge and discha...

Sahtu Karst Study
Principal Investigator: Skelton, Jennifer
Licensed Year(s): 2007
Summary: The Northwest Territories contains numerous unique landforms known as karst topography. The objective of this study is to know the locations and characteristics of karst sites in the Sahtu, providing information for environmental assessment of future developments and for land-use planning. Karst topography is an unique landform; the environmental impacts on the land and water of various land uses...
