Survey Description

Helicopter-supported sample collection was carried out in August 2007 in the northern Fraser Basin, central British Columbia.  A total of 1959 lake sediment and water samples were collected from 1851 sites.  The average sample density was one site per 10 km2 over the 18,000 km2 survey area.  The data are published in Geoscience BC Report 2008-5.

The report also contains the original data and re-analyses by ICP-MS of 488 archived lake sediment samples collected in 1995 in the adjacent Stuart Lake area (northeast corner of NTS 93K) and previously published in BC Ministry of Employment and Investment Open File 1996-15.

This survey was carried out using National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) protocols.
