Developing New Tools for Assessing Legacy Pollutants and their Ecological Consequences in Lakes Near Northwest Territories Mines
Principal Investigator: Blais, Jules M
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The research team propose to develop tools to assess risks associated with legacy industrial developments in a northern setting. The team will investigate contaminants from the Giant Mine near Yellowknife Northwest Territories (NT), which operated between 1948 and 2004, producing a legacy of contaminants including arsenic, antimony, hydrocarbons, mercury, and others. This remediation strategy appl...


Gordon Lake Assessment Project
Principal Investigator: Doucet, Michael
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The objective of this program is to determine the environmental and physical conditions at nine sites on Gordon Lake and potentially six Gordon Lake south sites. 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 (includin...


Impacts of recent climate warming on Canada’s northern aquatic ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Blais, Jules M
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to determine the impact of shoreline expansion and forest/peat submergence from thawing permafrost on contaminant and carbon fluxes to lakes in the Yellowknife region; 2) to develop novel approaches to track terrestrial organic matter sources in lakes, in order to assess how climate warming and permafrost thaw are affecting the delivery of terrestr...


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...


Mercury Concentration of Two Lakes on the Yellowknife River System Affected by the Bluefish Hydrodam
Principal Investigator: Puznicki, Wayne
Licensed Year(s): 1997
Summary: The objective of the study is to assess the concentration of mercury in fish, water and sediment in Bluefish and Duncan Lakes; to provide information to the Yellowknives Dene First Nation to make decisions relating to the use of fish and water from these lakes; and to correlate traditional knowledge with scientific data. Bluefish & Duncan Lakes are about 50 km to the northeast of Yellowknife. Tr...
