NGR/NTGO stream sediment and water surveys, Northwest Territories, 2007-2008

Project Description

National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) stream sediment and water surveys were carried out in the Northwest Territories in conjunction with the Northwest Territories Geoscience Office (NTGO).  As part of the NGR program, analytical results and field observations contribute to building a national geochemical database for resource assessment, mineral exploration, geological mapping and environmental studies.  Sample collection, preparation procedures and analytical methods are strictly specified and carefully monitored to ensure consistent and reliable results regardless of the area, year of collection or the analytical laboratory undertaking the analyses.

The data can be found in the following publications:
