The regional stream survey for Fort Fraser, B.C. (NTS 093K) was conducted during the summer of 2002.

This report presents analytical and statistical data for 47 variables in stream sediments from 795 sample sites, collected at an average density of one sample per 13.2 km². Fluorine and loss-on-ignition in sediments, and uranium, fluoride, conductivity and pH values in waters from these sites are included in this report. In addition, 186 stream water samples were analyzed for trace and major elements.

In collaboration with the Geological Survey of Canada, the Fort Fraser survey was designed and managed by the B.C. Geological Survey Branch. The survey was funded by the Targeted Geoscience Initiative (TGI) and the British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines.

P.W.B. Friske and R.E.W. Lett directed the survey and coordinated the activities of the various contractors, B.C. Geological Survey Branch (BCGS) staff and Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) staff.
