Geochemical Survey Area
A stream sediment and water survey within map sheets 82N, 83C, 83D and 83E completes the coverage within the southeastern portion of the province. The program reported analytical data for an estimated 1,353 sites from approximately 19,600 km2. Sample coverage does not include areas that lie within a local, regional, provincial or federal park. Survey analysis on sediments include 37 elements by ICP-MS, 35 elements by Neutron Activation, Fluorine and LOI. Water analysis includes pH, conductivity and Fluorine. Field observations regarding sample media, sample site and local terrain were recorded during the collection process. In order to monitor the integrity of the geochemical database and to provide a measure of precision, accuracy and confidence, a quality control program was implemented for all samples.
