Southeast Labrador till sampling, 2001

Project Description

The glacial deposits of southeastern Labrador, north of Red Bay, have not been studied extensively and the area’s mineral potential is largely unknown.  The Alexis River area was chosen for a detailed till geochemistry study because it exhibits a number of lake sediment geochemical anomalies.  As part of a larger Quaternary geology program in the region, till geochemistry was undertaken in the Alexis River area to refine the broader-scale lake sediment work and to attempt to locate areas of mineralization.  The data are published in Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Mines and Energy Open File 013A/0046.
