NGR surveys were originally conducted in the Kluane Lake map area in 1986 and covered parts of NTS map sheet 115F (east ?) and 115G (Geological Survey of Canada, 1987). Stream sediment and water samples were collected from a total of 1005 sample sites. The work was undertaken by the GSC in conjunction with the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, and the government of Yukon under the Canada-Yukon Mineral Development Agreement (1985-1989).
As part of the 2014 Yukon Database Upgrade Project, original material collected from the 699 sample sites were selected for reanalysis. Samples from 306 sites located in protected areas were not included. Representative 2 gram splits were successfully recovered from a total of 985 samples. Due to a deficiency of available material, 28 samples were not recovered. 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.
