Geological Framework of the Northern Rae Province on Eastern Devon and Southeastern Ellesmere Islands (149298)
Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: Renewal
Proponent name: Gordon Osinski
Company: University of Western Ontario
Schedule:
Start Date: 2020-07-01
End Date: 2020-08-25
Operation Type: Annual
Project Description:
The objectives of this project are to: 1) Provide new age, thermal, and pressure constraints related to the crustal architecture of units exposed on eastern Devon and southeastern Ellesmere Islands; and 2) Evaluate the usage of remote sensing images and spectral data to predict the bedrock geology of eastern Devon Island and southeastern Ellesmere Islands. The Canadian Shield of eastern Devon Island and southeastern Ellesmere Islands consists mainly of Precambrian metamorphic rocks. However, very little work has been done on these rocks since an 1983 11-page Geological Survey of Canada Paper by T. Frisch entitled “Reconnaissance geology of the Precambrian shield of Ellesmere, Devon and Coburg islands, Arctic Archipelago: A preliminary account”. There are conflicting accounts of whether these rocks are part of the Rae Province, which extends south through Baffin Island and the Canadian mainland, or whether this region of the Canadian Shield represents some other tectonic domain.

Environmental Impacts
Environmental impacts are expected to be minimal. Any combustible waste will be incinerated on site and all remaining waste will be removed. Greywater will be contained in a sump.
Waste Management
Waste Type Quantity Generated Treatement Method Disposal Method
Sewage (human waste) 12 kg/day Then transport remaining non-combustible material to PCSP Cumbustable material will be incinerated on site
Non-Combustible wastes 1 kg/day Material will be disposed of by PCSP Material will be safely transported to PCSP for proper disposal
Combustible wastes 4 kg/day Remaining material will be returned to PCSP for proper disposa Material will be incinerated in a can
Greywater 12L/day No harmful chemicals will be used for washing equipment, and greywater will be strained of any solid particles prior to sumping Material will be disposed of in a sump
