Survey Description


During the summer of 1987, B-horizon soil and underlying till were collected from hand-dug pits at each of 17 sites.  Samples of black spruce (bark, twigs, needles, trunkwood), birch (twigs, leaves, trunkwood), alder, willow and Labrador tea (twigs, leaves) were also collected at the same sites.  The sampling was part of a multi-disciplinary study of the geochemistry of platinum group elements. An evaluation of the data can be found in the Journal of Geochemical Exploration, v. 40 no. 1.
