Survey Description


During a 10 day period in late July 1997, lodgepole pine bark was collected at 268 sites in the Nechako project area, in the Ootsa-François Lakes region, central British Columbia.  Samples were obtained by scraping approximately 100 g of outer bark from around the circumference of mature trees.  The preferred sample interval was 2 km along roads, trails and tracks.  To minimize the effects of airborne contamination from roads, samples were collected at least 100 m into the forest.  Along less used trails, this distance was reduced to about 50 m.  The average sample coverage was approximately 1 site per 7 km2.  The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 3587 (a-d) and in GSC Open File 4356 as part of a geochemical compilation for the Nechako Project.
