The 1995 survey of the Cry Lake, British Columbia map sheet (NTS 104I) was managed and funded by the BCMEMPR as part of the Regional Geochemical Survey Program.

W. Jackaman and R.E. Lett coordinated the operational activities of contract and BC MEMPR staff.

W. Jackaman monitored the field program and coordinated the production of the Open File.
