The G-BASE project is a long-term systematic geochemical survey that has required a high degree of consistency in its sampling methodologies. This report gives in detail all the project procedures associated with the collection of geochemical samples from the planning phase in the office through to sample reception and reporting of the completed field campaign. The procedures described here should be diligently followed in order to maintain the high levels of quality control the project aspires to. Any changes to procedures are indicated in the latest version of this manual and documented in an updates list in Appendix K. In addition to describing all the fieldwork procedures, the recruitment and training of "voluntary" student workers is described along with discussions relating to health and safety issues likely to be encountered during sampling. When describing the methods used by G-BASE in reports or publications, reference should be made to this manual.
