Reclamation Research and Closure Plan for Pine Point
Principal Investigator: Robinson, Cindy
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: In accordance with the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board (MVWLB) Guidelines, the overarching closure goal for former mine sites is to return the site and affected areas to viable, and wherever practicable, self-sustaining ecosystems that are compatible with a healthy environment and with human activities. To meet this closure goal, companies must demonstrate that a site is physically stable, c...


Northern Native Plant Development Collections in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2007 2006
Summary: Despite the recognition of the ecological benefits carried by the use of native plant seeds in reclamation, there is still no commercial source of plant materials native to the NWT or Canada’s north. Even finding southern cultivars of local species is a significant challenge. In response to this, Aurora Research Institute (ARI) initiated the NWT Native Seed Development Program, its objective being...

Northern Native Seed Development Field Trials
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of this sub-project are: 1) to continue assessing the performance of native plants which were seeded and transplanted into field plots in 2006 and 2007; and, 2) to establish two new field plots at the Inuvik golf course with the same intent of monitoring native seed performance in a disturbed habitat. The research team intend to collect data regarding winter survival, seedling e...


Reclamation of Disturbed Sites Research at Diavik Diamond Mine, NWT
Principal Investigator: Naeth, M. Anne
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2009 2008 2005
Summary: The overall research goal is to determine appropriate methods to restore disturbed sites at Diavik Diamond Mine to productive and sustainable tundra communities following mine closure. There are three main research areas 1) building suitable reclamation substrates for plant establishment and growth, 2) methods of collection and propagation of locally common native plant and lichen species, and 3) ...


Vegetation recovery at 30 year old oil and gas drilling sumps in the Mackenzie River Delta, NWT.
Principal Investigator: Wunderlich, Nicole B
Licensed Year(s): 2008
Summary: The objective of this study is to determine if the plant community composition of seeded and unseeded disturbances in the Mackenzie Delta is similar to the undisturbed tundra. This comparison may help determine best practices of recovery for native vegetation to use in future oil and gas projects in the region. The vegetation data will be collected using non-destructive methods including species p...


Aurora Research Institute Mallik 2L-38 and 3L/4L/5L-38 Sump Monitoring and Retrofit Program
Principal Investigator: Seccombe-Hett, Pippa
Licensed Year(s): 2008
Summary: The objectives of the sump monitoring activities are to gain further knowledge of long-term sump integrity and sump monitoring techniques while addressing both the commitments of the Mallik Gas Hydrate Project and the recommendations from site surveys. Active layer depth will be measured to determine differences between sumps and undisturbed areas. Ground temperature will be recorded. Ground co...


Environmental Investigations for Reclamation Planning at the Tundra Mine
Principal Investigator: Robinson, Cindy
Licensed Year(s): 2004
Summary: This fieldwork is for reclamation planning at the Tundra Mine site. An aquatic survey will be conducted to characterize the current conditions of water bodies adjacent to the Tundra Mine and downstream of the mine's two tailings ponds. A total of seven l...
