    Granular Resource Requirements for Proposed Mackenzie Valley Pipelines: Technical Papers and Workshop Proceedings view of the extremely disturbance sensitive permafrost terrain in the the extension of the Mackenzie Highway system, deep seaports on the Beaufort coast, and extensive infrastructure upgrading in Mackenzie Valley communities. These have been core BGC competencies since our inception, as one of BGC’s founders was part of the permafrost engineering expertise developed at the University of Alberta in the ’s. In addition to services related to this expertise, BGC also provides specialist services in the areas of glacial and periglacial environment assessments.

    The decision on how to handle the permafrost needs to be made early on in the design of the project, Hoeve said. This may involve plowing past the permafrost to build on more solid bedrock – an option possible in places on the southern end of the territory, where the layer might not be as dense – or factoring protective measures into the design. Welcome to Alberta's largest county. Located in the northwestern corner of the province kilometers from Edmonton, with the corporate office located in Fort Vermilion, and sub-offices in High Level, La Crete, and Zama City.

Based on two field surveys of permafrost distribution, conducted 26 years apart, along the Mackenzie Highway south of Great Slave Lake, Canada, the southern limit of the sporadic discontinuous permafrost zone in the region has migrated northward by about by: The impacts of thawing permafrost on the chemistry of lakes across the subarctic boreal‐tundra transition, Mackenzie Delta region, Canada.

The Government of the Northwest Territories says it will cost about $ billion to extend the Mackenzie Valley Highway from Wrigley, N.W.T. to the Dempster Highway — just south of Inuvik, N.W.T. The posted speed limit on the Highway will be 80 km/hr. About the reasons for the Mackenzie Valley Higway Project.

The reasons for building the Mackenzie Valley Highway are: 1. Provide a year-round transportation link connecting the Mackenzie Delta and the Mackenzie Valley with the rest of the Northwest Territories and Canada 2.

The Mackenzie River basin is the 10 th largest river basin in the world (MRBB ), extending over 20° of longitude and 15° of latitude from the Rocky Mountains to the Arctic lowlands. The basin includes numerous different ecozones and landforms (MRBB ; see the images on the right).

Permafrost underlies 75% of the basin. Mackenzie County is a specialized municipality in northern Alberta, is located in Census Divis along the Mackenzie orated as a municipal district in from the former Improvement District No. its status was changed to specialized municipality in to address the particularities of managing such a large territory, which is 10% larger than New y: Canada.

The Dempster Highway is an important transportation route for northern communities in the Yukon and Northwest Territories (NWT), facilitating the receipt of services and supplies from southern Canada 2. The all-weather, gravel highway is primarily built above continuous permafrost, which is susceptible to degradation if soil temperatures warm.

The District of Mackenzie invites you to explore the opportunities we have to offer. We want you to know that we are open for business and willing to work with potential investors.
