Historical study of the social, economic, and environmental impacts of the North Rankin Nickel Mine from archival material

The researchers digitized and collected large volumes of documents from the following collections: Library and Archives Canada, Ottawa (Royal Canadian Mounted Police Records, RG 18; Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development Records, RG 22; Department of National Health and Welfare Records, RG 29; Northern Affairs Programme Records, RG 85); NWT Archives, Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre, Yellowknife (Alex Stevenson Collection, N 92-023); University of Saskatchewan Archives, Saskatoon Archives (R.G. Williamson Fonds, MG 216). All relevant documents were photographed (with permission) and stored as PDF files in a structure that mirrors the file structures within the respective archives. The types of documents include government correspondence with the mining company, field reports from government agents based in Rankin Inlet, reports from government anthropologists, and reports from mining company officials. Individual researchers are not at liberty to share copied archival material, but may consult web search engines and finding aids at specific archives.
