Survey Description

On May 27-28, 1988 and May 24-27, 1989, spruce trees were sampled over a 150 km2 area near Weedon Lake in central British Columbia to assist in the mapping of subsurface bedrock geology.  Black spruce twigs were collected along seven traverse lines across the Weedon Fault at 250 m intervals within 1 km on either side of the fault.  Additional samples were collected at 500 m intervals between 1 and 3 km away from the fault.  A total of 151 samples were collected.

The data and a summary of the work are published in Geological Survey of Canada Bulletin 480.
