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): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: The goals of this research are: 1) to determine the magnitude and rate of release of arsenic and other toxic elements from the Giant Mine tailings to groundwater; 2 to evaluate remediation alternatives for tailings management, including the effects of proposed engineered covers; and, 3) to apply novel characterization techniques to understand the mechanisms controlling arsenic release. The r...

Permafrost, river, and groundwater inputs of trace elements and nutrients to the Mackenzie River estuary
Principal Investigator: Charette, Matthew
Licensed Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objectives are to measure a suite of trace elements and isotopes (TEIs) in the active layer and permanently frozen layer of permafrost cores sampled near the Mackenzie River, and to compare these concentrations to those observed in submarine groundwater discharge and Mackenzie River discharge in order to determine whether permafrost-associated TEIs are being transported to the coastal Arctic. ...

EL462 & EL463 2013-2015 Surface and Groundwater Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Hansen, Ken
Licensed Year(s): 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The study is to continue establishing the groundwater and surface water conditions within the exploration licences prior to and during oil and gas exploration activities. Surface Water Quality Sample Collection Collect surface water samples once, during September 2015, from a reduced number of sampling locations targeted near areas where exploration activities have occurred. The water sampl...

Assessment of Groundwater Conditions at the Former Weather Station in Fort Reliance, NWT
Principal Investigator: Cipcigan, Paul
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objective of the groundwater investigation is to confirm the presence or absence of contamination and to determine the risk associated with contaminated groundwater infiltration into the lake (if applicable). This work will include installing five to six monitoring wells at the site in the area adjacent to the Great Slave Lake. A secondary objective is to inspect the fuel storage tanks located...

Waste rock studies at a diamond mine site
Principal Investigator: Blowes, David W.
Licensed Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2005
Summary: This research study is designed to investigate the processes related to water quality and quantity (collected at different scales) draining from country rock stockpiles that are located in areas of continuous permafrost. The quality of water draining from a country rock stockpile is determined by the combined effects of oxygen transport in the air phase, biogeochemical processes that control miner...

PWGSC Gordon Lake Environmental Site Assessments
Principal Investigator: Nyman, Jeff
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this program is to determine the environmental and physical conditions at nine sites on Gordon Lake. This will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts in soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater, and the identification of any hazardous or non-hazardous materials. In addition, samples of biota (including vegetation, fish, benthic invertebrates) m...

Remediation of the Abandoned Panarctic Satellite F-68 Wellsite at Satellite Bay, Prince Patrick Island, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2013 2011 2010
Summary: Evidence of contaminants was found in soil, groundwater and surface water at the site during investigations in 2008, 2010 and 2011. The objective of the project is to remediate the abandoned wellsite by containing and stabilizing contaminated materials in an on-site landfill, and remove debris and solid waste from the site. Talisman is proposing a two-year approach to complete the Project. Year...

Phase I/II/III ESAs and Risk Assessment
Principal Investigator: Hamilton, Melissa M
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The purpose of each Phase I/II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is to determine the current environmental and physical conditions at each site to allow for the potential future development of the appropriate remediation or risk management strategies and costs. This will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts to all media including soil, sediment, surface water a...

Establishing a watershed framework for assessing cumulative impacts of development
Principal Investigator: Chin, Krista
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: Objective 1: Build a partnership between government, communities, regulators and researchers to develop a watershed-based cumulative impact study in areas of oil and gas exploration in the Sahtu region. The Sahtu Renewable Resource Board (SRRB) can play an important coordinating role in bringing partners together and working with the communities to determine appropriate engagement in the projec...

Supplemental Environmental Site Assessments along the Canol Trail, NT
Principal Investigator: Livingstone, Steve
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012 2010
Summary: The purpose of the Supplemental Environmental Site Assessments is to further determine the current environmental and physical conditions at several petroleum hydrocarbon spill sites along the Canol Trail, and address the gaps identified from the 2012 sampling program. Key findings from these select sites will be synthesized to identify the scope and nature of the spills, potential trends regarding...
