Survey Description

During the summer of 1978, helicopter and truck-supported stream sediment and water sampling was carried out in the Prince Rupert-Terrace area of northwest British Columbia.  Samples were collected at an average density of 1 sample per 6 km2.  One field duplicate sample was routinely collected in each analytical block of twenty samples.  The data were published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 772 and in British Columbia Regional Geochemical Survey RGS-1 in 1980.

The samples were reanalysed by INAA and republished in BC RGS 42 in 1995.  The samples were later reanalyzed by ICP-MS and all the data (from 1978, 1995 and 2008) are published in Geoscience BC Report 2008-11.

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