Star Lake area, Saskatchewan, vegetation surveys, 1985, 1986 and 1988



Project Description

Biogeochemical surveys of differing scales have provided regional and detailed information on the chemistry of the substrate within a 150 km2 area in the La Ronge gold belt, Star Lake area, Saskatchewan.  Within the limits of the regional survey are several zones of gold mineralization, including the Star and Jolu (including the Rod Zone) gold mines.  Orientation, reconnaissance and follow-up/in-fill surveys were carried out in 1985, 1986 and 1988 respectively.  Outer bark of black spruce and twigs of shrub alder were collected from approximately 600 sites and analysed for 35 elements.  An interpretation of these data is published in Modern Exploration Techniques, Saskatchewan Geological Society Special Publication No. 10.  As part of this project the biogeochemical data were integrated with remote sensing studies in the area and a summary of this work can be found in Summary of Investigations 1986, Saskatchewan Geological Survey.
