Survey Description

Using helicopters, stream sediments and waters were collected from 1306 sites in the Eagle Plains area, northern Yukon during the summer of 2001.  Additional water samples were collected from 305 of these sites for subsequent filtration and acidification.  Sample sites were distributed over a 19,300 km2 survey area at an average of one sample per 15 km2.  Sample site duplicate samples were routinely collected in each analytical block of twenty samples.  The data are published as part of a compilation released by the Yukon Government:  Yukon Regional Geochemical Database 2003 (Héon, compiler).

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