Report Description
Geoscience BC Report 2006-5/ MEMPR Geofile 2006-12 reports results of regional geochemical drainage sediment - water surveys in the Golden (NTS 82N), Brazeau River (83C), Canoe River (83D) and Mount Robson (83E) map sheets. This digital release consists of reports in PDF format, and appendices in a ZIP format file.

Most of the known base and precious metal occurrences are in the Golden map sheet although much of the remaining survey area has a higher potential for metallic and industrial mineral deposits. During 2005 stream sediment and water samples were collected from 1409 sites covering 21 560 square kilometres in southeastern BC. The samples were analysed for trace and minor elements by instrumental neutron activation and by aqua regia digestion - inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP/MS), for loss on ignition (LOI) and for fluorine. Water samples were analysed for pH, conductivity and fluoride. Gold values up to 357 ppb and silver up to 1747 ppb were detected in sediment samples from the surveys.
