In the summers of 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2008 the U.S. Geological Survey conducted a reconnaissance geochemical survey of the drainage basins throughout Taylor Mountains 1:250,000-scale quadrangle, in southwestern Alaska. The purpose of the study was to locate areas of potential interest for ore minerals, provide data that may be used to determine regional-scale element baselines, and provide data for the concurrent U.S. Geological Survey geologic mapping and mineral resource assessment effort. This report provides the stream-sediment sample data for the study.
