Survey Description

A total of 74 black spruce bark samples were collected two days in June, 1985 over the Rushed Au-As occurrence at Dot lake, northern Manitoba.  Outer bark samples were collected from the same 800 m transect where black spruce needles and twigs were collected in 1983.  The samples were collected at 10 m intervals and each sample represents the bark of five black spruce trees within 1-2 m of the sampling point.

The data are published in Manitoba Energy and Mines Open File Report OF86-6.
