The regional stream survey for east central Yukon (NTS 105O and parts of 105P) was conducted during the summer of 1990.

This report presents analytical and statistical data for 37 elements in stream sediments from 957 sample sites, collected at an average density of one sample per 11.6 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 managed by the Geological Survey of Canada in conjuction with the Department of Indian and Northern Development. The survey was undertaken under the auspices of the Canada - Yukon Economic Programming Agreement (1989-1990).

E.H.W. Hornbrook directed the survey.

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