Survey Description

Between August 28 and October 23, 2005, stream sediment and water samples were collected from several map sheets in southeastern British Columbia.  Samples were not collected in Provincial or National parks.  A total of 1,409 sites were sampled as follows:

NTS Map Sheet Name Number of Sites
82N Golden 612
83C Brazeau Lake 42
83D Canoe River 603
83E Mount Robson 152


At 33 sites there was no flowing water and only stream sediment was collected.  The sampling covered approximately 21,560 km2 at an average density of 1 sample per 15 km2.

The data are published in British Columbia Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources GeoFile 2006-12 / Geoscience BC Report 2006-5 (Project 2005-050).

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