AbstractGroundwaters sampled from diamond drill holes, domestic wells, springs and surface water bodies in the White Lake Basin, British Columbia, were analysed for chemical content and for oxygen-18,deuterium and tritium. Surface waters and shallow flow systems in overburden and bedrock aquifers were found to be chemically and isotopically distinct from deeper waters in the basin. Local and intermediate length flow systems are thought to exist, but there is no evidence for the existence of a regional flow system in the basin. Flow of the deep waters is influenced locally by geological and hydrological conditions. There is no evidence that the waters from the basin have been subjected to temperatures significantly higher than measured at the discharge points.
