New analytical data for 37 new elements.  Silver data from previous survey is not comparable to results in this survey because the newer method is more sensitive to silver.  The Queen Charlotte samples show a number of clusterings which suggest the presence of epithermal gold (Ag-Hg-Sb), others show a VMS signature and a Cu-Mo-Au cluster.  A large cluster of drainage basins show elevated values near a Ag-Au-Zn-Cu-Ba-Pb VMS showing (the Cimadoro showing, MINFILE 103F 052).
