Southwest Quebec till and humus survey carried out in 1977 and 1979

Project Description

The goal of this study is to filter soil geochemical data to more effectively use them for the study of chemical dispersion.  The author proposes a means of withdrawing the contribution of the crystalline matrix from the total content.  Secondly, the method of extraction used by the Centre de Recherches Minérales du ministère de l’Énergie et des Ressources is evaluated in order to obtain optimal contrast between background and anomalies.  A summary of the work can be found in "La géochimie d’exploration au Québec".
