In 2009 and 2010, stream sediment and water samples were collected in the Shúhtagot'ine Néné Candidate Protected Area, western Northwest Territories. The work was part of a non-renewable resource assessment of minerals. Over the two field seasons, the following samples were collected:
|Number of Samples||Sample Medium|
|742||bulk stream sediment|
Heavy mineral concentrates from the bulk stream sediment samples were processed for kimberlite indicator minerals (KIM), magmatic/metamorphosed massive sulphide indicator minerals (MMSIM) and gold grains.
The data are published in Northwest Territories Geoscience Office (NTGO) NWT Open File 2012-01.
This survey was carried out using National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) protocols.
