Experience northern heritage in today's landscape, where old traditions mix with the modern way of life, a Yellowknife where diamonds are now mined from the Canadian Shield, while old methods of transportation - ice roads and vintage airplanes - still provide steady service to our communities.

Northern Frontier Visitors Centre Yellowknife's regional visitors centre should be your first stop when you arrive.

Thirty-three PCB congeners were detected and their concentrations determined in selected sections of sediment cores.

The most abundant congeners were 15 and 18, 44, 49, 52 and 101 (IUPAC numbering) with maximum concentrations 3.52, 2.68, 2.44, 6.20 and 2.44, 6.20 and 2.13 ng/g respectively.

The geotechnical composition of the sediments showed the deposition of similar material at all sampling stations.

Sediment dating indicated a very high sedimentation rate (46.6 g/cm²/year) at a 110 m water depth in the vicinity of the Slave River delta and mixing of bottom sediments at the southwestern part of the lake.

Rather than enjoying the summer by the ocean at home, Jean, a Canadian Red Cross volunteer, is in Slave Lake, helping those who were impacted by the May 15 wildfires.

Everyday Jean listens to the stories of local residents who are sometimes in despair, and offers the kind of compassion and warm smile only a grandmother can provide.

Jean Mac Neil from Antigonish, Nova Scotia is, in many respects, a typical royal watcher.

A grandmother with eight children and many grandchildren, Jean has the latest tea towels commemorating the marriage of Prince William to Catherine Middleton, along with dishes, towels and souvenirs commemorating various royal events dating back to 1937.

A study was carried out in the summer of 1987 to determine the geochemistry and distribution of trace elements, PCBs and 16 other chlorinated hydrocarbons in sediments from selected areas in Great Slave Lake, Northwest Territories, Canada.
