Survey Description


During the summer of 1994, stream sediments and waters were collected at 893 sites across the central part of Victoria Island.  Sample sites were distributed over the 14,600 km2 survey area at an average of one sample per 16.4 km2.  Each group of twenty samples contained site duplicate samples.  The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 4290.

In 2010, the samples were reanalysed for 35 elements by ICP-ES/MS.  The data are published in GSC Open File 6622 along with the original data from OF 4290.

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