          The survey covers some 14,000 sq. miles at an average sample density of 1 sample per 5 sq. miles. Samples were analysed for 12 elements (Zn, Cu, Pb, Ni, Co, Ag, Mn, Fe, U, Mo, As and Hg) and loss-on-ignition to estimate organic carbon content.

          The file consists of 26 geochemical maps, the area being divided into 2 sheets, 2 sample location maps and lists of the field and analytical data.

          The field will be placed on Open File for inspection from 1:00 pm EDT, Wednesday, June 29, 1977 (and equivalent local times) at the libraries of the Geological Survey of Canada and also at the office of the Resident Geologist, Department of Indian and Northern Affairs, Bellanca Building, Yellowknife, Northwest Territories and at the Public Service Centre, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, Whitney Block, Queen's Park, Toronto, Ontario.
