NGR surveys were originally conducted in the Wolf Lake map area in 1978 and covered parts of NTS map sheet 105B (Geological Survey of Canada, 1986). Stream sediment and water samples were collected from a total of 959 sample sites. Additional analytical work completed in 1985 was undertaken by the GSC as part of the Canada-Yukon Economic Development Agreement, 1985-1989.
As part of the 2014 Yukon Database Upgrade Project, original material collected from the 959 sample sites were selected for reanalysis. Representative 2 gram splits were successfully recovered from a total of 1016 samples. The samples were delivered to Bureau Veritas Commodities Canada Ltd. (Vancouver) and were analyzed by an ultra-trace aqua-regia digestion ICP-MS package for 53 elements.
