Survey Description


In 2007 and 2008, vegetation samples were collected in the Bonaparte Lake area, south central British Columbia during the course of a mapping project.  Approximately 8 samples were collected in the vicinity of the Gibraltar Mine.  In 2009, a brief follow-up survey was carried out near areas of known PGE enrichments in the Lake Dum area and southwest of Lac des Roches.  The following sample types were collected:

 

Year of Collection Number of Samples Sample Type
2007 + 2008 198 lodgepole pine bark
180 Engelmann spruce bark
35 western redcedar twigs and foliage
2009 21 lodgepole pine and Englelmann spruce bark; Douglas fir twigs and foliage

 

The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 6726.
