Babine Lake: Data From Chemical and Biological Surveys, May 83, May 84, July 84

Water quality data were obtained in May 1983, May 1984, and July 1984 in Babine Lake to determine if there was any impact from the Bell Copper Mine discharges. Physical and chemical water quality data were collected associated with taxonomic and metal tissue analysis in zooplankton and fish. Hardness, conductivity, copper and zinc values were higher in Rum Bay and Hagan Arm. Concentrations of copper, zinc, and iron in the liver were higher in Hagan Arm fish than in fish caught in the main arm of Babine Lake. Water quality results indicate seepage of tailing water into the lake at the Granisle Mine.
