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 520 in 1978.  In addition to the 1977 survey data, the open file includes most of the previously published data from a 1976 survey (OF 420).

The samples were re-analysed and republished in GSC Open File 2365 along with the original data from OF 520.

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