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...

Predicting post-closure water quality at a mine in Nahanni National Park
Principal Investigator: Stavinga, Drew B
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objectives of this project will be (1) to characterize the geochemistry of the Prairie Creek paste backfill, (2) identify whether the cement binder reduces potential for oxidation, (3) examine the site specific conditions of the backfill within the underground mine workings, (4) identify the potential for chemical reaction between the wall rock and backfill and possible impacts, and (5) evalua...

Tuk Base Demolition Supplementary Sampling
Principal Investigator: Bird, Sam P
Licensed Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objective of this research project is to collect supplementary soil and water samples to further delineate areas of the site affected by hydrocarbons, metals and salinity and to assess area for possible impacts where infrastructure has been removed. Soil samples will be collected with hand tools and placed in ziplock bags to roughly measure hydrocarbons while in the field and into glass ja...

2007 Tuktoyaktuk Base Camp Decommissioning and Clean-Up
Principal Investigator: Sampson, Jack
Licensed Year(s): 2007
Summary: The purpose of this project at the Tuktoyaktuk Base Camp is to sample soil, surface water and groundwater in the area; sample and characterize materials in Seacans; investigate and characterize landfill waste; investigate soil impact, residual fluids in tanks, and potential historical spill areas – as well as inspect the docks and assess the condition of infrastructure. Imperial Oil intends to dec...

Pointed Mountain
Principal Investigator: Stone, Larry
Licensed Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: The objective of this assessment is to examine the quality of groundwater and surface water in the Pointed Mountain Gas Field in conjunction with the decommissioning of the gas field. Groundwater sampling will occur at 5 well sites, 1 plant site, and the airstrip. All equipment used and waste generated will be transported out of the sites each day. Transportation will be by helicopter and truck...

Assessment, Remediation and Associated Services for Former Uranium Mines, NWT
Principal Investigator: Wiatzka, Gerd M
Licensed Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: This research program is a continuation of the environmental assessment of the existing conditions at and near the Port Radium site. Information collected during this study will add to the base of existing information and aid in refining the final decommissioning plan for the site. The work will be done through manual sampling and measurement; no heavy equipment or drills will be used. Sampling...

2003 Port Radium: Phase 2 Environmental Studies
Principal Investigator: MacNeill, Scott W
Licensed Year(s): 2003
Summary: This 5-day sampling program will involve fisheries, aquatic, and vegetation studies at/in the vicinity of the abandoned Port Radium Mine site. Concentrations of five biologically significant metals (antimony, arsenic, lead, nickel and zinc) will be dete...

Ecological and Geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licensed Year(s): 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The main objectives of this study are to: 1. determine the status of permafrost land forms in the study area, and 2. determine the long-term recovery after abandonment of the CANOL No.1 project. Access during the summer is via the Yukon along the Canol Road through Macmillan Pass. Base camp is owned by Old Squaw Lodge at Camp 222. Beyond the base camp mountain bikes and foot will be the means ...

Vegetation Mapping at Tuktuk Nogait National Park
Principal Investigator: Raillard, Martin
Licensed Year(s): 1998
Summary: This project will take place in Tuktuk Nogait National Park in 1998 and 1999. The objective of the project is to map the vegetation of the park. As many areas of the Park as possible will be hiked and the various vegetation communities along the hiking route will be put into one of several classes, and their exact geographical location recorded. Once the field season is over, these various geograp...

Using Drilling Mud Sumps to Determine How Well Permafrost Contains Contaminants
Principal Investigator: Dyke, Larry
Licensed Year(s): 1998 1997
Summary: This project is intended to determine the amount by which fluids disposed of in abandoned oil well drilling mud disposal pits (sumps) have migrated into surrounding frozen ground. The sumps are not presently considered to pose any kind of environmental hazard but they do offer a unique opportunity to determine the effectiveness of permafrost as a containment for waste fluids. The main activity i...
