The regional stream survey for east-central British Columbia (east half of NTS 93G and west half of 93H) was conducted during the summer of 1984.

This report presents analytical and statistical data for 17 elements in stream sediments from X sample sites, collected at an average density of one sample per 13 km². Loss-on-ignition in sediments, and uranium, fluoride, and pH values in waters from these sites are included in this report.

The reconnaissance surveys were undertaken by the Geological Survey of Canada in conjunction with the British Columbia Ministry of Energy Mines and Petroleum Resources under a "letter of understanding" for a cooperative project.

W.J. McMillan (British Columbia Government) directed the provincial Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources activities.

E.H.W. Hornbrook directed the survey program.

P.W.B. Friske coordinated the operational activities of contract and Geological Survey of Canada staff throughout the survey.

N.G. Lund was responsible for data management and open file production.

B.E. Elliott carried out the data processing.

A.C. Galletta prepared the regional trend marginal map utilizing a program developed by D.J. Ellwood.

J.Yelle supervised map preparation.

Computing and plotting facilities were provided by the Computer Science Centre, EMR.

Open File text was manufactured by K.G. Campbell Corporation Laser Printing, Ottawa.
