Survey Description

In June 1990, one day was spent investigating a gold anomaly 32 km northeast of Lac La Ronge, south of Aikenhead Lakes and east of the road to the abandoned Anglo-Rouyn copper mine.  Samples of rock, B-horizon soil and tissues from several species of tree and shrub were collected from 14 sites.  The species collected were the outer and middle layers of bark from paper birch, the other bark of jack pine and black spruce, the most recent three years growth of mountain alder twigs and the entire stems of Labrador tea.  The anomaly was determined in a 1984 regional survey and delineated in follow-up work in 1985.  A summary of the 1990 site investigation can be found in Summary of Investigations 1990, Saskatchewan Geological Survey Miscellaneous Report 90-4.
