Survey Description


In late March, 2006, a helicopter-supported survey was conducted in a 700 km2 area centred upon Mabel Lake, British Columbia, to collect tree tops from Douglas fir trees.  Sampling was at 1 km on an offset grid, with closer spacing over the Kingfisher deposits.  The data are published in GSC Open File 5538.

In 2007, follow-up work was carried out over areas of interest identified by the 2006 sampling.  In addition, needles from the tree top samples collected in 2006 were analysed. These new data, as well as data previously published in GSC Open File 5538 are published in GSC OF 6147.

A summary follows:

 

Year of Collection Number of Samples Sample Type GSC Open File
2006 562 foliage and twigs from the tops of Douglas fir trees 5538 + 6147
2006 446 of the 562 original samples needles (from a subset of the archived tree-tops 6147
2007 40 Douglas fir outer bark 6147
2007 90 western hemlock outer bark 6147

The geographic extent of the survey is defined by the following polygons:

  • Covers part of NTS 82L/9 (Gates Creek) and most of 82L/10 (Mabel Lake) just into 82L/15 (Malakwa) in the Mabel Lake area, southern British Columbia.  It is located approximately 45 km southwest of the city of Revelstoke.  Mabel Lake runs north-south through the western part of the study area.
