The Snow Lake regional lake survey (NTS 63J/13 West and 63K/16) was conducted during the fall of 1991 and the subsequent report was released in 1995.

This report presents analytical and statistical data for 35 elements in lake sediments from 346 sample sites, collected at an average density of 3.87 km². Loss-on-ignition in sediments, and uranium, fluoride, and pH values in waters from these sites are included in this report.
