Subdivision Surveys
Sub-Arctic Surveys Ltd. was involved from the start with Yellowknife’s Grace Lake subdivision. We performed the original site survey, then subdivided the area into the current residential development.

Trout Lake Airport OLS and AOM Survey
Sub-Arctic Surveys Ltd. produced Obstacle Limitation Surfaces (OLS) and Airport Operations Manual (AOM) drawings for the Trout Lake Airport in 2014.

Giant Mine Remediation Project
Yellowknife’s Giant Mine is under remediation. Sub-Arctic Surveys Ltd. has provided survey support for surface and underground drill positioning and alignment.

Deh Cho Bridge
The construction of the Deh Cho Bridge, which now connects Yellowknife to an all-season road, required Sub-Arctic Surveys to survey from each pier and safely collect measurements for final construction.

Tundra Mine Remediation
Sub-Arctic Surveys Ltd. has provided survey services to the remediation project at Tundra Mine for three seasons. This included quantity surveys, as-builts, grading and earthworks surveying.

Cameco Mineral Claims (2013-2014)
In July we undertook the survey of sixty six mineral leases for Cameco Corporation at Aberdeen Lake Nunavut approximately 220 km west of Baker Lake. The survey required placing 970 iron bars to define all existing staked boundaries. The field work took about 26 days to perform. In July 2014 we returned to Cameco camp and undertook the survey of an additional thirty nine mineral leases which bordered the previous years survey to the west. The survey required placing another 800 iron bars and retracing three land claims boundaries as well. The claim-staking was well done: our mineral claim survey took only fifteen days.

Deformation Monitoring
With our high precision equipment, Sub-Arctic Surveys Ltd. have measured year-to-year changes in structures throughout the North. This includes earth-dams, ice-roads and buildings.
