Survey Description

Between August 5 and September 29, 1995, soil samples were collected at 7 sites in the Omineca-Peace area, east central British Columbia.  At each site, a core of the surface soil was taken using a stainless steel coring device 10 cm in diameter and 10 cm in length.  Two replicate grab soil samples were taken for organic analysis from the soil adjacent to each core sample.  The soil pit was then expanded to a depth of 0.5 m and 4 samples were taken from the 0.5 to 0.6 m soil layer (1 for metal analysis, 3 for organic analyses).  The data can be found in the Prince George/Williams Lake Sampling Report by Soilcon Laboratories Ltd.
