Survey Description

During the 2008 field season, eleven till samples were collected in the area of the Gibraltar Mine, on the Interior Plateau, central British Columbia.  Two crews collected the samples over a one-day period.  Samples were collected on road side sections at a minimum depth of 1 metre below the depth of most intense soil weathering and oxidation.

Samples of vegetation were also collected near the Gibraltar North and Copper Ace South showings by a two person crew during one day of the 2008 field season.  Six samples of lodgepole pine outer bark and seven samples of Englemann spruce outer bark were collected at different times and by different crews than the till samples and are not from identical sites.

The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 6755.
