Survey Description

In late September 1994, 22 B-horizon soil samples were collected in the Assean Lake area, northeastern Manitoba.  Samples were collected from hand-dug pits approximately 50 m apart on the Hunt Transect.  Samples weighed approximately 2 kg and organic material was excluded from the sample.

Before ICP-MS analysis, two selective digestions were used: enzyme leach and mobile metal ion (MMI).

The data are published in Manitoba Energy and Mines Open File Report OF98-3.
