0 m depth) in reconnaissance and regional scale geochemical surveys, in order to intersect the tail of dispersal trains. On the other hand, in local and detailed surveys, till sampling close to the bedrock surface is most effective because the composition of the till more closely resembles the underlying bedrock. Dispersal trains commonly rise in a downice direction at a low angle of inclination so that the distance between the bedrock source and the first appearance of the dispersal train at the surface tends to increase with till thickness (Miller 1984).

5), hence samples may be collected at shallow depth (> 30 cm). However, Shilts (1975) observed a slight decrease in trace metal concentrations with depth in mudboils, and DiLabio (1979) reported significant U variation down profile near U mineralization in Keewatin. Where shallow soils are developed, trace metals adsorbed or complexed with fine-grained organic matter recycled from the surface and redistributed throughout the active layer by cryoturbation as discrete organic-rich layers can result in abrupt geochemical variations (McMartin et al.
