Survey Description

During the summer of 1977, helicopter-supported lake sediment and water sampling was carried out in northeast Saskatchewan.  The samples were collected at an average density of one sample per 6.25 km2.  Sample site and grid cell duplicate samples were routinely collected in each analytical block of twenty samples.  The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 508.

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