Summary:The results of geochemical sampling of stream sediments from 306 sites at a sample density of one per 1.5 km2 are presented in distribution map form. Copper, Pb, Zn, Sr, Mn, Ba and Co were analysed by AAS, and heavy minerals were panned and examined microscopically. Water samples were analysed for fluoride using a selective ion-electrode method. The data are consistent with a zoned mineral distribution model, the zonation being due to inhomogeneities caused by high heat flow associated with the concealed Wensleydale granite. There is a spatial correlation between high Mn and the line of the Dent fault zone. [R.K.H.]
