Abstract: A survey of 380 sq. deg. of the sky with the 1 m Schmidt Telescope at the Observatorio Nacional de Llano del Hato and the QUEST camera has found 498 RR Lyrae variables lying from 4 to 60 kpc from the Sun. We describe the halo substructure revealed by these data and the results of measuring some of the stars' radial velocities and metal abundances.
