Survey Description

Helicopter-supported sample collection was carried out during the summer of 1995, northern Bathurst Island.  Stream sediment and water samples were collected at 413 sites at an average density of one sample per 15.5 km2 throughout the 6,380 square kilometres covered by the survey.  Sample site duplicate samples were routinely collected in each analytical block of twenty samples.  The data are published in GSC Open File 3292.  The data were re-released with data from 1996 and 1997 in the MERA report, GSC Open File 3714 (Part D).

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