Assessment of seismic shothole-associated gas seeps, Mackenzie Delta, NWT
Principal Investigator: Smith, Rod
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: Dr. Rod Smith’s ongoing compilation of drillers’ log records from geophysical seismic exploration activities in the Mackenzie Delta and vicinity has identified approximately 214 sites where “gas” was reportedly encountered. This study proposes to revisit as many as possible of these sites that are land-based, or in near shore lake/pond environments, in order to determine which, if any, are still s...

2006 Great Bear River Seismic Test Program in the Sahtu Settlement Area - Tulita District
Principal Investigator: Hawkins, Jim R.
Licensed Year(s): 2006
Summary: The objective of the program is to collect information regarding the surficial geology of the Great Bear River at the location of the proposed pipeline watercourse crossing. This information will be used to determine the depth to bedrock as part of the information for a river crossing design, and for use in the design of a proposed horizontal directional drill (HDD) crossing at this location. S...

A Research Study to Understand and Mitigate the Effects of Explosive Use Beneath Waterbodies
Principal Investigator: Cott, Pete
Licensed Year(s): 2005
Summary: Winter seismic programs done in the Mackenzie Delta still use dynamite as an energy source under waterbodies not frozen to bottom. Exploding dynamite in or near fisheries waters can potentially impact fish. The main reasons for the study are as follows...

Fall 2001 Mackenzie Delta Aquatics Survey
Principal Investigator: Jalkotzy, Peter
Licensed Year(s): 2001 2000
Summary: Selection of lakes for this program was based on: size (diameter/depth); fish over-wintering potential; connectivity with other waterbodies; and the likelihood of intensive (3D) seismic activity occurring within the lakes during the winter of 2001-02. A total of 6 lakes have been identified for inclusion in the survey. Three alternate lakes have also been identified in the event that those selec...

Aquatic Assessment
Principal Investigator: Monita, Darwin
Licensed Year(s): 2001
Summary: The aquatic assessment is scheduled for September and October, 2001, and will focus on three lakes in the Chevron Canada Resources 2001/2002 seismic program areas in the Ellice 3-D, Mallik 3-D and Ogruknang 3-D blocks. All lakes examined will exceed 400m in width. No field camps will be used, all garbage will be packed out, and all human waste buried. The field crew will include a senior fisheri...

Parson's Lake Seismic Research Project
Principal Investigator: Fernet, Dave
Licensed Year(s): 2000
Summary: The objectives of this study are to ensure all activities associated with seismic activity in the Parson's Lake area are within relevant guidelines for the protection of the environment. Personnel will commute by helicopter from Inuvik daily and guidelines for protection of wildlife during overflights will be observed. Seismic testing will be carried out approximately 5 km northeast to approximat...

Teleseismic Studies in the Lac de Gras Area
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2003 2000 1999
Summary: The purpose of this study is to investigate the structure and composition of the Earth's crust and upper mantle to depths of 0 - 200km from sites in the Lac de Gras area. Seismometers will be deployed within two existent mine camps for at least one year. These sensors will record distant earthquakes. Well established technology will be used and once deployed, the instruments will require only lim...

Hydrogeologic Investigations of Carbon Dioxide Rich Groundwaters in the Flat River Valley Region, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Hamilton, Stewart M.
Licensed Year(s): 1990
Summary: The team will investigate the hydrogeology, hydrogeochemistry and geology of the region and attempt to determine the cause and extent of carbon dioxide rich springs in the Flat River Valley region. They will also determine if a fault exists in the valley and if the springs delineate an active seismic zone....

Licence #2396
Principal Investigator: McLaughlin, Ronald
Licensed Year(s): 1978
Summary: To study the effect linear developments (roads, pipelines and seismic lines) have on the northern ecosystems by: (1) documenting changes to the vegetation and terrain and comparing these areas with undistrubed areas. (2) selecting vegetation sample sites for next year's program. (3) sampling fish, small aquatic organisms ...

Licence #2105
Principal Investigator: Riewe, R.R.
Licensed Year(s): 1977
Summary: Conducting a survey of seismic lines to determine their effect upon the carnivores and upon ungulates. Continuation of last year's (1976) monitoring of small mammals in the vicinity of seismic lines....
