Survey Description

During the summer of 1980, helicopter and truck-supported stream sediment and water sampling was carried out in the Quesnel Lake area of south central British Columbia.  Samples were collected at an average density of 1 sample per 15.5 km2.  One field duplicate sample was routinely collected in each analytical block of twenty samples.  The data were published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 776 and in British Columbia Regional Geochemical Survey RGS-5 in 1980. The samples were reanalysed by INAA and republished in BC RGS 50 in 1999.

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