    BACKGROUND:
    
    Outpost Island Mine Site
    
    The Outpost Island Mine is located approximately 88 km due south
    of Yellowknife on an archipelago of islands at the entrance to
    the Hearn Channel of Great Slave Lake, in the Northwest
    Territories, Canada. The mine site coordinates are 61.736°N,
    113.459°W. The mine site is situated on Outpost Island proper
    while the former camp and some exploration mine workings are
    located on the East Island. 
    
    The Outpost Island Mine was a small gold mining operation that
    was active between 1941 to 1942 and again in 1951 to 1952. The
    majority of the mining operations were undertaken on the West
    Island, including the main camp, mill and services buildings. In
    1955, a fire destroyed all of the buildings at the mine site
    except for an outhouse and a shed on the East Island.
    Historically there were four mine openings and potentially a
    fifth vent raise. The Outpost Island Mine presently exists as an
    abandoned site and is under management of Aboriginal Affairs and
    Northern Development Canada (AANDC), Contaminants and
    Remediation Directorate (CARD). As a site is over 50 years old
    it is classified as a historic site under the NWT Archeological
    Site Regulations.
    
    Summer access to the site is currently by fixed-wing aircraft on
    floats, helicopter, or watercraft. Winter access would be via
    ice road for vehicles, snow machines or aircraft equipped for
    landing on snow or ice. Access on site is limited and defined by
    the limitations resulting from an undulating bedrock surface.
    
    Blanchet Island Mine Site
    
    The Blanchet Island Mine is located approximately 115 km
    southeast of Yellowknife, on an island within the Hearn Channel
    of Great Slave Lake, in the Northwest Territories, Canada. The
    mine site coordinates are 61.996°N, 112.394°W while the camp is
    located at 61.986°N, 112.417°W. The site is situated on the
    south side of the island with the camp site located at the
    shoreline while the adit and former mine workings are located
    approximately 1.55 km east of the camp.
    
    The Blanchet Island Mine has been an area of interest for cobalt
    and nickel mining since the staking of the LUX claim in 1968.
    The site workings are limited to an adit at the mine area with
    some minor infrastructure remaining at the former camp and mine
    site areas. The Blanchet Island Mine presently exists as an
    abandoned site and is under management of Aboriginal Affairs and
    Northern Development Canada (AANDC), Contaminants and
    Remediation Directorate (CARD).
    
    Summer access to the site is currently by fixed wing aircraft on
    floats, helicopter, or watercraft. There is an overgrown access
    route between the mine and camp areas of the site. The route
    runs through some soft areas and will require some upgrading
    prior to its use as a haul route to move borrow from the camp
    area to the mine site. Winter land access could be achieved via
    a winter road or snow machines could be used.
    
    Copper Pass Mine Site
    
    The Copper Pass Mine is located approximately 130 km due east of
    Yellowknife, in the Northwest Territories, Canada. The site is a
    collection of mine workings (trenches) situated near the south
    and eastern shores of Sachowia Lake approximately 6 km north of
    the Hearn Channel (Great Slave Lake). The coordinates of the
    mine camp are 62.412°N, 111.861°W. The Main, West, East and
    Upland Pond mine showings are located within 2 km of the camp
    site.
    
    The original claims for the Copper Pass Mine were first staked
    by Cominco in 1940 as a high grade nickel showing. After an
    unspecified period of inactivity, the claims were acquired by
    Copper Pass Mines Limited in 1969. Blasting and hand-cobbing
    were the primary extraction methods, after which the ore was
    shipped to a European mill and smelter for processing. A total
    of seven trenches were blasted and work concentrated at the Main
    Showing, West Showing, and East Showing. Additional exploration
    was conducted at the Upland Pond, through the excavation of five
    small trenches/pits. Camp facilities were erected on the
    southern shore of Sachowia Lake and access routes constructed
    between the respective showings. The mine closed in 1970 with no
    significant mining or exploration activities documented since
    (Silke 2009). The Copper Pass Mine presently exists as an
    abandoned site and is under management of Aboriginal Affairs and
    Northern Development Canada (AANDC), Contaminants and Remediation
    Directorate (CARD).
    
    Summer access to the site is currently by fixed wing aircraft on
    floats or helicopter. From the Traditional Knowledge study for
    the site it was reported that there is an overgrown trail to the
    site starting at Sachowia Point on Great Slave Lake. This trail
    is different from the former winter road route which was used
    to service the mine. Winter land access must follow the route of
    former winter road.
    
    Wilson Mine Shaft
    
    The Wilson Mine is located approximately 88 km southeast of
    Yellowknife on Wilson Island at the entrance to the Hearn
    Channel of Great Slave Lake, in the Northwest Territories,
    Canada. The mine site coordinates are 61.7958°N, 113.1750°W. 
    
    The Wilson (Aurous) mine was mined for gold on and off from 1919
    to 1928. Two shafts located approximately 80 meters apart were
    advanced to four meters deep. No work was
    reported after 1928 and the only building reported on site in
    1992 (a windlass headframe over the main shaft) was removed in
    1994.
    
    
    Summer access to the site is currently by fixed-wing aircraft on
    floats, helicopter, or watercraft. Winter access would be via
    ice road for vehicles, snow machines or aircraft equipped for
    landing on snow or ice. Access on site is limited and defined by
    the limitations resulting from an undulating bedrock surface.
    
    Waldron Mine Shaft
    
    The Waldron Mine is located approximately 200 km due
    east-northeast of Yellowknife west of Waldron River on the north
    shore of McLeod Bay, Great Slave Lake, in the Northwest
    Territories, Canada. The mine site coordinates are 62.9294°N,
    110.5936°W. 
    
    The Waldron mine was originally mined for copper in the 1930s by
    the Ryan brothers. The reportedly sank two shafts, one 20 feet
    deep and the other 16 feet deep. Exploratory drilling was
    undertaken by Polaris Mines in 1967/68 but no further mining
    took place
    (NWT Geoscience Office).
    
    Summer access to the site is currently by fixed-wing aircraft on
    floats, helicopter, or watercraft. Winter access would be via
    ice road for vehicles, snow machines or aircraft equipped for
    landing on snow or ice. Access on site is limited and defined by
    the limitations resulting from an undulating bedrock surface.
