Survey Description


In 2007, samples of western redcedar twigs were collected in the vicinity of the MAX molydbdnum mine, southern British Columbia, prior to mine development.  Samples were collected at 109 stations at mostly 50 m intervals and at each site, 25 cm lengths of twigs were collected.

A summary of the work, including element concentration maps, can be found in Geological Survey of Canada Current Research (online) 2009-2.
