Survey Description


Helicopter-supported stream sediment and water sample collection was carried out in 1977 at an average density of 1 sample per 13 km2. Sample site duplicate samples were routinely collected in each analytical block of twenty samples.  The data were published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 518 in 1978.  In addition to the 1977 survey data, the open file includes most of the previously published data from a 1976 survey (OF 418) and some new data from the Keno Hill area collected in 1964 (NTS 106D).

In 1990, the samples were re-analysed and published in GSC Open File 2175 along with the original data from OF 518.

This survey was carried out using National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) protocols.
