Survey Description


During a 10 day period in early August 1998, lodgepole pine bark was collected at 217 sites in the Nechako project area, in the Fraser Lake 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 sampling grid is not even because of a lack of roads and trails in some areas.  The average sample coverage was approximately 1 site per 8 km2.  The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 3696 (a-d) and in GSC Open File 4356 as part of a geochemical compilation for the Nechako Project.
