In 2010, Geoscience BC, under the Northern BC Sample Reanalysis Project, released drainage sediment samples from previous RGS programs conducted in northern BC from 1978 to 1997.  These samples were targeted for reanalysis by aqua-regia digestion ICP-MS as Geoscience BC Report 2011-2 and cover parts of NTS map areas 094C, D, E, L, M and 104B, G, I, O, P.
