... This workshop was convened to summarize previously completed borrow resource inventory studies, identify any new granular resource requirements or development constraints in the Mackenzie Valley and Delta regions, and identify any future research requirements or outstanding granular resource management issues. This information will be used in future planning for Mackenzie Valley hydrocarbon development. ... The workshop brought thirty representatives of oil and gas production and transportation companies, federal and territorial government departments, aboriginal groups, local contractors, and others with a specific interest in the granular resources of the Mackenzie Valley area. ... Technical presentations at the workshop showed the considerable breadth and scope of granular resource research that NOGAP funds have supported. Regional granular resource deposit inventories have been completed for the South Slave Region, the Upper Mackenzie Valley, the Lower Mackenzie Valley and the Mackenzie Delta Region. Also significant are the studies of granular resources that might feasibly be recovered from the bed of the Mackenzie River. Current uses of granular [resources] in the Mackenzie Valley region include roadway and airstrip construction, various public works projects and the Norman Wells pipeline. ... (Au)
