Have you been thrown into cold water and tasked with the design and implementation of a soil survey? Are you unsure what an "orientation survey" is? This webinar introduces the importance of soil surveys in regional and detailed exploration and focuses on the practical considerations of designing and executing a best practice geochemical survey program. You will not only have a better understanding of geoscientific aspects of soil sampling, but also learn the essential logistical considerations in carrying out a survey in time and on budget.
