The mineral potential of the proposed Mackenzie Delta marine protected areas: M183-2/1820E-PDF

“This study addresses the evaluation of mineral and aggregate resources in the 3 candidate Marine Protected Area (MPA) sites identified by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) in the southern Canadian Beaufort Sea. In this report, they are referred to as Mackenzie Bay, Kendall Island and Kugmallit Bay MPAs. The MPA sites were defined based on the boundaries of the Zone 1a areas as established under the auspices of the Beaufort Sea Beluga Management Plan (BSBMP). At the present time, BSBMP guidelines exclude oil and gas exploration, production or related construction and mining activities in these areas. As part of the process of developing regulations that would govern the proposed MPA, non-renewable resource assessments are required”--Executive Summary.
