Fort Chipewyan Metis (Local #125) Land Use and Indigenous Knowledge Study and Cultural Impact Assessment
For the Suncor Base Mine Extension (BMX) Project (2018-2020) FCM BMX Project *Project summary forthcoming
An assessment of cumulative effects from resource development in Fort McKay’s Traditional Territory, and identification of land-management tools to mitigate these effects.
In partnership with BGC Engineering, IEG conducted a UAV survey of an organic matter reclamation cover on a constructed plateau at Detour Lake Mine. The objective of the project was to assess the distribution of a peat mineral mix (PMM) used as a cover material and create a spatially explicit map of PMM distribution to be used as a covariate in a revegetation trial.
Integral Ecology Group is supporting the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development and the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy in the re-assessment of high elevation grasslands and bighorn sheep winter range in the Elk River valley in southeast British Columbia.
In 2020, IEG began working with Dena Cho Environmental and Remediation Inc. and CIRNAC on the revegetation program at the Faro Mine, located on Kaska traditional territory in south-central Yukon.…
IEG has spent almost a decade, and substantial effort, developing quantitative approaches to ecohydrological analysis, reclamation-cover design, and projection of post-closure ecosystems on mining landscapes. The culmination of this work…
IEG staff and colleagues worked with Nlaka’pamux communities and Teck’s Highland Valley Copper mine in south-central British Columbia to develop and implement a study to examine the effects of mine…
