Tundra Mine Remediation Risk Assessment
Principal Investigator: Corrin, Natasha
Licensed Year(s): 2016
Summary: The overall objective of the Tundra Mine risk assessment is to facilitate project closure by determining if there are any residual risks to human health or ecological receptors, including aquatic life, associated with the proposed tailings remediation. If any risks remain, the goal is to provide recommendations for risk management. In support of the risk assessment, and in order to collect baselin...

Effects of permafrost disturbances on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, Banks Island, NWT, Canada
Principal Investigator: Lacelle, Denis
Licensed Year(s): 2015
Summary: Thaw slumps are one of the most dramatic thermokarst features in permafrost regions. The number of thaw slumps on Banks Island has more than tripled in recent decades and it is likely that this change is altering terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. This multidisciplinary research project investigates the short- (1960s-present day) and long-term (Medieval Warm Period to today) impacts of permafrost...

Re/mediating Indigenous Environmental Justice: Resource Extraction, Divergent Risk Perception, and Economic Equality in the North
Principal Investigator: Fletcher, Alana
Licensed Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: The project the principal researcher will be undertaking in Deline, NWT, is part of a dissertation, which examines how the Deline Dene's assessments of the risks of uranium mining on Great Bear Lake proliferated from the geographical and political margins to the center, prompting public and official responses. As the source of these environmental risk assessments is the oral histories of the Delin...

Phase III ESA & RAP for Stark Lake Exploration Site, NT
Principal Investigator: Barnes, Keith G
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objectives of this year’s work program are to: 1. Complete a Phase III Environmental Site Assessment of the site, to further assess and delineate areas of concern on the site to support Remedial Action Plan development; 2. Complete a hazard assessment of the Stark Lake Site to support the development of a health and safety plan, and ensure that the Crown’s due diligence in regards to ...

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 stream...

Lichen Sampling Program - Diavik 2013
Principal Investigator: Wells, David A
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2010 2005
Summary: The aim of this research project is to determine whether dust generated from mining activities is causing a measurable change in dust deposition to and/or metals uptake in lichen closer to and further from the mine. If a significant difference in uptake is noted closer to versus further from the mine, a health risk assessment to caribou may be conducted to determine risks associated with consumpti...

EBA, Five Mine Sites ESA Update and Remedial Action Plan
Principal Investigator: Farrell, Rory
Licensed Year(s): 2012
Summary: To take specific samples for the completion of a remedial action plan and risk assessment for the Five Mine Sites. The field component of the project will be conducted over a two day period. Limited soil and mine tailing samples from the most contaminated areas of the site will be taken. These areas were previously identified in past environmental site assessments. The samples will be collec...

De Beers - Gahcho Kué Ecological Risk Assessment Program
Principal Investigator: Langhorne, Amy
Licensed Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objective of the plant and soil sampling is to determine baseline metal and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon concentration in surficial soils and plants growing in the study area. The data will be used in the human health and terrestrial wildlife risk assessment. The proposed study will include the collection of up to 30 co-located soil, plant, and insect samples at six terrestrial locations...

Detailed Site Description, Remediation Feasibility and Risk Assessment of the Panarctic Satellite F-68 Wellsite, Satellite Bay, Prince Patrick Island, NWT
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2013 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of this study is to conduct further assessments to determine site remediation options for future remediation work. Talisman conducted a Site Reconnaissance and Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) in the summer of 2008 and a Phase II ESA in the summer of 2010 to determine environmental impacts to the area. A detailed report was prepared and submitted to the communities an...

8 Sites - Phase II ESAs
