Seismic Exploration [2715.91 KB ]
Old seismic practices carried out during the 1970s have left a visible legacy on the landscape. More common today is the use of “Low Impact Seismic” (LIS) practices. LIS reduces the need for long and wide corridors by using a combination of satellite technology, meandering lines, smaller low ground pressure equipment and helicopters, as well as the application of seasonal timing windows to address wildlife, human and terrain specific needs.

Heritage values such as historic resources exist throughout the Yukon landscape in all terrains and are vulnerable to looting or unauthorized collection. Increased activity in a previously isolated area may see the loss of irreplaceable objects that are part of Yukon’s history. Seismic work, access development and other activities associated with a project should plan to avoid known sites and areas of high historic site potential.
