Survey Description


Helicopter and truck-supported sample collection was carried out during the summer of 1990 in the Fernie map area.  Stream sediment and water samples were collected from 922 sites from an average density of 1 site per 12.5 km2 over the 11,500 km2 survey area.  Provincial parks were excluded from the sampling program.  Field duplicate samples were routinely collected in each analytical block of twenty samples.  The data are published in British Columbia Regional Geochemical Survey RGS 27.

This survey was carried out using National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) protocols.

Sampling Procedure

Fine grained stream sediments (<1 mm) weighing 1-2 kg were obtained from the active stream channel.  Unfiltered water samples were collected in 250 mL bottles and precautions were taken to exclude suspended solids where possible.
