A total of 295 surface water samples were also collected at an average of 1 sample per 1.7 km2 and analysed for Hg, Cr, Mo, Co, Pb, Cd, Cu, Zn, Ni, Mn, Fe, Ca, Mg, Na, K, Li, As, lost on ignition and F (selective electrode).

The data are published in Open File DP-553, Department of Natural Resources, 1978.
