BC RGS stream sediment and water survey, NTS 104M, northwest British Columbia, 1992.
(requires an Internet connection)
Helicopter and truck-supported sample collection was carried out during July and August of 1992 in the Skagway map area. A total of 785 stream sediment and 773 stream water samples were collected from 741 sites. The average sample site density was 1 site per 10 km2 over the 7,500 square kilometre survey area. Field duplicate samples were collected in each analytical block of twenty samples. The survey also included the collection of 43 sediment and water samples in Atlin Provincial Park and Recreation Area. The data are published in British Columbia Regional Geochemical Survey RGS 37.
This survey was carried out using National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) protocols.
Primary and secondary drainage basins with catchment areas of less than 10 km2 were sampled. Sediment samples weighing 1 to 2 kg were obtained from the active stream channel. Samples were primarily fine-grained material mixed with varying amounts of coarse sand and gravel, glacial sediments and organic material. Contaminated or poor-quality sample sites were avoided by choosing an alternate stream or by sampling a minimum of 60 metres upstream from the identified source of contamination. Unfiltered water samples free of suspended material were collected in 250 mL bottles
