Geochemical data is a valuable baseline for environmental assessment purposes and a useful tool for mineral exploration. YGS maintains a number of geochemical datasets, including:

  • Igneous lithogeochemistry
  • Organic geochemistry from sedimentary basins in Yukon
  • Stream sediment geochemical data
  • Soil geochemistry
