Fault Detection in Cables: A Machine-Learning Approach

Fault location identification is one of the most common, but challenging, activities that power operators face within industrial plants. Once a fault occurs in the network, protective relays isolate the affected area from the system; then, maintenance crew use special tools and patrol the area to pinpoint the fault. This process may take a lot of time and effort depending on the fault type, detective tools, and cable position.

Using AI to generate mining algorithms

Hard-rock mining of uranium in Canada's north is challenging and often difficult. Operating risk exposures are heightened when mining in high-grade uranium ore bodies that are exposed to possible flooding from water above the mine. To succeed in this environment Cameco has successfully mechanized their operations and relies on Jet Boring technology.

An Engaged Community for Shared Learning: Internships Contribute to Capacity Building in Northern Saskatchewan

The International Centre for Northern Governance and Development (ICNGD) was created to help focus attention on opportunities for building capacity in northern Saskatchewan. An overarching goal was to establish local to global relationships with the Circumpolar North in support of education, research and economic prosperity. The university, industry and northern communities work together to help students learn in an environment that is context based, relevant education and research in support of the north.

Sustainable Capacity Building in the North by the North

This unique research project, undertaken by Master of Northern Governance and Development (MNGD) students, contributes significantly to our understanding of the North. The research focuses on community-based responses to rapid economic, social, and environmental changes and the development of the local capacity to respond. The analysis is collaborative, involving key stakeholders at the community and multi-community levels, and is informed by their values and interests.

Mineralogical characterization of ore samples from the Cameco Resources Smith Ranch-Highlands Uranium Mine, Unit B

ln Situ Recovery (ISR) mining is used for about 47% of uranium mining globally. Regulations on restoration of mined aquifers require a return to pre-mining baseline water quality conditions, or conditions where the risk of human exposure is as low as reasonably achievable. Determining the attenuating capacity of down-gradient aquifer solids is key to quantifying this risk. Organic carbon phases and sulfides are expected to be important controls on transport of elements of concern through these materials.

By the North with the North: Community Building in Northern Saskatchewan

This research project will be conducted through internship research by students in the Master in Northern Governance and Development (MNGD). The MNGD is a project-based, interdisciplinary program meant to build capacity among northerners in northern Saskatchewan through a blended delivery model including face-to-face, videoconferencing, online and international field school instruction.

The Master in Northern Governance and Development (MNGD) is a project-based, interdisciplinary program meant to build capacity among northerners in northern Saskatchewan through a blended delivery model including face-to-face, videoconferencing, online and international field school instruction. The 2012-2013 internship research project will contribute to the MNGD graduate students’ research through the examination of community-based responses to rapid change and the development of the local capacity to respond.

Issues in Northern governance and development

The research plan has been jointly proposed by the academics of the International Centre for Northern Governance and Development and Cameco Corporation to meet the needs of industry, federal/provincial/local governments, and Northern Saskatchewan residents by researching key issues related to northern development and governance strategies.
