2018 Sample Collection is complete!

The information collected from last Fall and this Spring together will form the baseline data for Yellowknife, Ndilo and Dettah.

Thank you to all participants, your involvement is greatly appreciated!

We will do our best to get the results to you later this Fall.

The program will return in 2022/2023 to do a follow-up with children only, and then in 2027/28 to do a follow-up with both children and adults who are still residents.

This will help the project team ensure that the exposure measured in 2017-2018 is not increasing because of the remediation work at Giant Mine.

2017 PARTICIPANTS!

A total of 898 people from Yellowknife, Ndilo and Dettah participated in the arsenic study in the fall 2017. Participants will receive their results for urine in a personal letter in June 2018!

We will send the results of your toenail analysis in the Fall of 2018. Your saliva results will be grouped with all participants and the general results shared at community meetings sometime in late 2018 or early 2019.
