Prosperity Through Unity Research Project

Healing the Land – An Elders Prospective


Project Components

  • Prosperity Through Unity Reclamation Trial Plots – Treatments

  • Healing the Land – An Elders Perspective

  • Pre-site / Post-site Assessment Process


Reclamation Trial Plots

  • 10 sites with range of soil types and moisture regimes

  • 20m x 20m treatment plots, including:

    - Ripping (Excavator)

    - Ripping with Woodchip Mulch

    - Ripping with Woodchips Mixed in

    - Untreated with Woodchip Mulch

    - Untreated with Brushmats

    - Untreated (control)

  • Trees & Shrubs, including

    - White Spruce, Black Spruce, Lodgepole Pine, Western Larch (Tamarack)

    - Willow, Aspen, Hybrid Poplar, Elderberry, Red-Osier Dogwood, and Rose.

  • Other select species and techniques will be implemented from the Healing the Land – An Elders Perspective site visits

Healing the Land – An Elders Perspective

  • Monashee Resources and the Aboriginal Groups in the Peace region have been and will continue to complete site visits of the reclamation trial plots and other reclaimed well-sites in their traditional areas.


Healing the Land – An Elders Perspective

  • The objective of these visits is to examine alternative reclamation techniques that create sites that reflect their traditional knowledge, traditional activities, and/ or creates sites that are usable to the community. This can be achieved with little or no impact on current processes.


Healing the Land – An Elders Perspective

  • Currently discussed treatments include: reforestation, creating wildlife habitat, planting native medicinal plants, planting native plants important to the community, planting berries, planting commercial crops, and restoring the site to what was originally there.


Healing the Land – An Elders Perspective

  • Once the site visits are completed, Monashee will take some of the most common ideas and look at potential techniques to implement the ideas into the reclamation process.

  • These techniques will be tried on the appropriate reclamation trial plots based ecological factors and site conditions.

  • As for restoring the site to what was originally there, this process will be evaluated through our Pre-site/Post-site Assessment Process.


Pre-site/Post-site Assessments

  • The most feasible method to restore a sites productivity, ecological factors, and consequently the vegetation that was originally there is through a pre-site post sites assessment

  • By determining soil horizon depths, LFH (topsoil) depths, compaction hazard, etc. A plan for stripping and restoring the important layers can be developed

  • This will help alleviate many of the problems that lead to a loss of productivity.

  • This is proven through the ALR schedule A & B site assessments, which are used during construction and reclamation to restore original site conditions

Pre-site/Post-site Assessment Process

  • Pre-site assessment (before construction)

  • Develop construction and reclamation plans

  • Site construction

  • Post-construction assessment (after construction)

  • Development/Drilling (Producer = end of process/ Duster = Abandonment)

  • Post – site assessment (before reclamation) & Reclamation prescription
