Soil and till sampling, NTS 82M/4, Spar deposit, south central British Columbia, 1998.
(requires an Internet connection)
In 1998, B-horizon soil and C-horizon till samples were collected at 9 sites around the Spar deposit, British Columbia. Most of the sampling was carried out using 4-wheel drive vehicles, but foot traverses were used where road access was blocked and to obtain more detailed sample coverage. Soil and till samples were collected from road cuts or dug pits at intervals ranging from 20 to 200 m, depending on the extent of the bedrock mineralization and the size of the existing regional till anomaly. The data are published in British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines Open File 2000-31.
