Multimedia sampling, central Labrador, 1995 - 1998



Project Description

Multi-media geochemical surveys including soil, stream sediment and stream water have been carried out in central Labrador in areas of known or potential mineralization.

Follow-up geochemical surveys (soil, stream sediment and stream water) were conducted in the Florence Lake greenstone belt area, central Labrador in 1995.  They were designed to identify areas with good mineral potential and rule-out those with little potential.  As part of the survey, an orientation study was conducted over the Baikie showing to demonstrate the dispersion characteristics in the area.  One day was also spent to the east of the Florence Lake greenstone belt, in an area underlain by Ballet Pond Schist.  The data are published in Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Mines and Energy Open File 013K/0225.

Subsets of soil and lake sediment previously collected (1995, 1998) in areas having known or high potential for Ni±Cu±PGE mineralization were selected for Pt and Pd analysis.  This part of the project was undertaken to determine whether platinum (Pt) and palladium (Pd) mineralization in Labrador is reflected in the geochemistry of surficial sample media.  The data are published in Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Mines and Energy Open File LAB/1362.
