Geochemical, Mineralogical & Kimberlite Indicator Mineral Electron Microprobe Data from Silts, Heavy Mineral Concentrates & Waters from a National Geochemical Reconnaissance Stream Sediment & Water Survey in the Northern & Southwestern Buffalo Head Hills

A regional stream sediment and water geochemical survey was undertaken in the northern and southwestern part of the Buffalo Head Hills in 2004. The 2004 data are part of an ongoing survey of the Buffalo Head Hills area initiated in 2001. This National Geochemical Reconnaissance (NGR) project contributes to Alberta's plan for a multi-year, multi-disciplinary study in the northern part of the province.

Analytical data accompany this document for 49 elements in stream sediments, 50 elements in heavy mineral concentrates, and 60 variables in waters from 122 sites sampled in 2004. The Geological Survey of Canada, under the Targeted Geoscience Initiative II (TGI II) and Northern Resources Development Program, and the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board/Alberta Geological Survey (EUB/AGS), funded the 2004 survey.
