Survey Description

Helicopter-supported sample collection was carried out during the summer of 1989 in east-central Yukon.  Stream sediment and water samples were collected at an average density of one sample per 13 km2 throughout the 8 400 km2 survey area.  Sample site duplicate samples were routinely collected in each analytical block of twenty samples.  The data are published in GSC Open File 2174.

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