Survey Description

During the summer of 1988, helicopter and truck-supported stream sediment and water sampling was carried out in south central Yukon.  Samples were collected at an average density of one sample per 13 km2 throughout the 11,870 km2 survey area.  Sample site duplicate samples were routinely collected in each analytical block of twenty samples.  The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 1960.

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