Bundle Description

Geochemical results of till samples surveyed in the Kuujjuarapik-Whapmagoostui region of Quebec are presented. The Kuujjuarapik-Whapmagoostui map area is located in Northern Quebec and corresponds to NTS map sheet 33M, N.

The till samples were analysed for 33 trace elements using instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA). The samples were irradiated on a 3 monitor reactor in laboratories at McMaster University.

The geochemical results of this survey were reported by M. Parent, M.R. Laflèche, S.J. Paradis, and É. Boisvert, Geological Survey of Canada, Quebec Office.

The data were published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 3269.
