The geographic extent of the survey is defined by the following polygons:

  • Covers a very small part of the southeast corner of NTS 106E (Wind River) in central Yukon.  The study area is bounded to the south by latitude 65° and is located just east of Bonnet Plume River.

  • Covers most of the east half of NTS 105F (Quiet Lake) in southern Yukon.  It is located in the St. Cyr Range of the Pelly Mountains south of the intersection of the Canol Road and the Robert Campbell Highway.  The western edge of the study area is located just east of the Rose River.

  • Covers parts of NTS 105A (Watson Lake), 105H (Frances Lake), and 105I (Little Nahanni River), a transect along the Little Hyland and Hyland rivers in southern Yukon.  The study area also covers a small part of the Flat River valley near the CanTung Mine in the Northwest Territories.

  • Covers a very small part of NTS 106L (Trail River; 2 samples) in central Yukon.  It is located approximately 12 km southwest of Lusk Lake and just north of the Caribou River.

  • Covers a small part of NTS 106E (Wind River) in central Yukon.  The study area is located between the Bonnet Plume and Wind rivers, just north of the Wernecke Mountains.

  • Covers a small part of NTS 106D (Nash Creek) in central Yukon.  It is located just south of the headwaters of Royal Creek.  The southern edge of the study area is located approximately 12 km northwest of Hart Lake.

  • Covers a small part of NTS 106D (Nash Creek) in central Yukon.  The study area is located in the Wernecke Mountains near the headwaters of Bond Creek.  Its eastern edge is located approximately 8 km west of Wind River

  • Covers a small part of the southwest corner of NTS 106C (Nadaleen River) in central Yukon.  The study area is located immediately south of the East Rackla River, in the Mount Mervyn area of the Nadaleen Range.

  • Covers a very small part of the northwest corner of NTS 106B (Bonnet Plume Lake; 1 sample) in the western part of the Northwest Territories.  The study area is located in the Backbone Ranges between the Orthogonal and Arctic river and approximately 45 km north of the YK-NT border.

  • Covers a small part of the northern part of NTS 106C (Nadaleen River) in central Yukon.  The study area is bounded to the north by 65° N and its eastern edge is located approximately 12 km west of Snake River.

  • Covers a small part of the northern part of NTS 106C (Nadaleen River) in central Yukon.  The study area is bounded to the west by the Bonnet Plume River and is located approximately 13 km south of Fairchild Lake.
