          The survey covers some 8500 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 file will be placed on Open File for inspection from 1:00 pm EDT, Wednesday, October 5, 1977 (and equivalent local times) at the libraries of the Geological Survey of Canada and also at the office of the Regional Geologist, Dept. of Indian and Northern Affairs, Bellanca Building, Yellowknife; and also at the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources Public Service Centre, 6th Floor, Whitney Block, Toronto.
