NTS 82N, 83C, D & E - Golden, Brazeau Lake, Canoe River & Mount Robson

 GBC 2006-5 / BCGS GF2006-12

During the 2005 field season, Geoscience BC funded a reconnaissance-scale drainage sediment and water surveys in southeastern British ColumbiaThe Golden, Brazeau Lake, Canoe River & Mount Robson (NTS 082N, 083C, D & E) resulting field and analytical data were released July 14, 2006. A total of 1495 sediment and water samples were collected from 1409 sample sites.


Geoscience BC Report 2006-5 / BC Geological Survey GeoFile 2006-12 includes results of the surveys. The data has been provided in a variety of digital formats. PDF files include survey descriptions and details regarding methods, field and analytical data listings, summary statistics, sample location map, geology map and maps for individual metals. Raw digital data files used in the production process are included in XLS and DBF formats.
