Legacy arsenic pollution in Yellowknife Bay sediments: An assessment of its long-term fate under a changing climate
Principal Investigator: Chételat, John
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: This study will assess the present-day and future stability of legacy arsenic contamination stored in Yellowknife Bay sediments that originated from local gold mining activities. Using a combination of quantitative methods (field measurements, laboratory experiments, paleolimnology and mass balance modelling), the research team will estimate the diffusion of arsenic from sediments to overlying wat...

Pine Point Mine reclamation research plan - tailings impoundment area
Principal Investigator: Fraser, Paul
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: In accordance with the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board (MVLWB) 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...

EL494 Surface Water Monitoring Program 2016-2018
Principal Investigator: von Kuster, Jenica
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: The study is to continue to establish natural variations in the surface water conditions within the Exploration Licence (EL 494) area and monitor potential impact of oil and gas exploration activities. Surface Water Quality Sample Collection: Collect surface water samples from a reduced number of sampling locations targeted near areas where exploration activities have occurred. The water sampl...


Impacts of Natural and Anthropogenic Disturbances on the Aquatic Health of Tundra Lakes in the Upland Region Northeast of Inuvik, NT
Principal Investigator: Hille, Erika C
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of this study is to examine the long term effects of thaw slumping on the water quality of water running off the landscape to the lakes and the lakes themselves, using data collected over the 10 year study period; and to examine the effects of tundra fire on the water quality of water running off the landscape to the lakes and the lakes themselves. This study will focus on 10 st...
