The regional lake survey for Lynn Lake - Leaf Rapids (parts of NTS 64B and 64C ) was conducted during the summers between 1983 and 1988 .

This report presents analytical data for up to 20 elements plus loss-on-ignition in lake sediments from nearly 400 sample sites, collected at an average density of one sample per 4.2 km². Surface lake waters were analyzed for up to 12 elements inlcuding uranium, fluoride, and pH values and are included in this report.

The reconnaissance surveys were managed by the Geological Survey of Canada unde the auspices of the Canada - Manitoba Mineral Development Agreement (1984-1989).

H.R. Schmitt designed and caried out the infill geochemistry survey.

E.H.W. Hornbrook and P.W.B Friske directed the survey.

A.C. Galletta, H.A. Gross and F. Williams assisted with open file production.

C.A. Kaszycki provided preliminary surficial geology data.
