Version 1.0

This report presents descriptions of twenty-five mineral occurrences and preliminary interpretations of their associated anomalous metal geochemical signatures. The descriptions consist of four sections detailing the location, host rocks, morphology and mineralogy, and geochemistry of each occurrence. The first three sections of each description are based on the authorís observations at the occurrences during fieldwork in May 1998 and, for a subset of the occurrences, during the summers of 1992 and 1993.

98DZrocks XLS file (486 KB) This excel file contains three tables of multi-element geochemical data obtained for rock samples collected in the Stikine geophysical survey project area. The first table consists of analytical data for unmineralized igneous rocks, the second, data for unmineralized shales, and the third, for mineralized rocks collected at the mineral occurrences discussed in the report.
