Survey Description

Alder twigs were collected near the gold and molybdenum-bearing Gold Dust Zone (GDZ), east of Wekusko Lake in Manitoba.  In 1995, samples were collected at 5 m intervals along two grid lines.  In 1996, sampling was carried out at 10 m intervals over the mineralized zone and at 20 m intervals beyond the GDZ.  Samples consisted of 8 to 10 pieces of 40 cm long alder twig collected from 1 to 3 alder bushes at each site.

The data are published in Manitoba Industry, Trade and Mines Open File Report OF99-14.
