Survey Description

Helicopter and truck-supported sampling was carried out in central British Columbia during the summer of 1985.  Stream sediment and water samples were collected at an average density of 1 sample per 13 km2 throughout the survey area.  Sample site replicate samples were routinely collected in each block of twenty samples.  The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 1216 and British Columbia Geological Survey Regional Geochemical Survey RGS 15.

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