Northwest Newfoundland soil sampling, 1996

Project Description

Regional lake sediment survey data highlight the Marion Lake area as having high gold and copper values.  Some base metal mineralization is known in the general area and gold and copper mineralization occurs near Montgomery Lake located about 8 km southeast of the Marion Lake study area.  A regional soil survey was undertaken to determine whether the soils and tills in the area contain anomalous gold and base metal concentrations.  If so, the new data would be useful in focusing exploration attention.  The data are published Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Mines and Energy Open File LAB/1231.
