Survey Description

In the summer of 1971, approximately 3500 stream sediment samples were collected systematically in the area along the streams, the intermittent streams and near springs.  The fixed sampling interval of 450 m was paced.  The area covers 1650 km2.  Sampling was done at an average density of 1 sample per 0.5 km2 and analysed for:


Element Dissolution Technique
Cu, Pb, Zn, Ni, Co, Mn


atomic absorption (AAS)


paper chromatography


The data are published in special study ES-22, Department of Natural Resources, 1976.  Raw data and sample analyses are published in DPV-351.
