          The 1977 survey covered approximately 42,800 km2 (16,500 mi2). The file includes most of the 1976 survey data (O.F. 418, 419 and 420), covering 17,600 km2 (6800 mi2) together with new analytical data for selected stream sediments from the Keno Hill area, NTS 106D, 1, 2, 3 and 4, covering 2600 km2 (1000 mi2).

          Each open file consists of 14 geochemical maps, sample location map and a text of field observations and analytical and statistical data.

          The material will be available for inspection from 1:00 p.m. EDT, July 26, 1978 (and equivalent local times) at all the libraries of the Geological Survey of Canada, at the office of the Regional Geologist, Department of Indian and Northern Affairs, 200 Range Road, Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Y1A 3V1 and at the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, Ontario Geological Survey, Mines Library, 8th Floor, 77 Grenville Street, Toronto, Ontario.
