Survey Description

In 1993, 229 till samples were collected at 171 sites in the Fawnie Creek area of central British Columbia.  The samples were collected at approximately 1 sample per 4 km2.  Higher density sampling was conducted in areas of perceived higher mineralization and around known mineral prospects.  The data are published in British Columbia Geological Survey Open File 1994-18.

Data Description:

Paper report with partial data lists.

Quantities Analysed:

<0.063 mm fraction by INAA for 35 elements; by ICP-ES after aqua regia for 30 elements; by ICP-ES for whole rock analysis.

Geochem Maps Available:

Proportional symbol maps show the dispersal of each element.
