(requires an Internet connection)
Between August 5 and September 29, 1995, soil samples were collected at 7 sites in the Omineca-Peace area, east central British Columbia. At each site, a core of the surface soil was taken using a stainless steel coring device 10 cm in diameter and 10 cm in length. Two replicate grab soil samples were taken for organic analysis from the soil adjacent to each core sample. The soil pit was then expanded to a depth of 0.5 m and 4 samples were taken from the 0.5 to 0.6 m soil layer (1 for metal analysis, 3 for organic analyses). The data can be found in the Prince George/Williams Lake Sampling Report by Soilcon Laboratories Ltd.
Digital report and data.
Soil samples analysed for 32 elements after nitric perchloric digestion and for 27 elements after aqua regia digestion. No size fraction or analytical methods given.
