Groundwater, soil and stream sediment  sampling surveys, Témiscamingue, Quebec, 1964-1980

Project Description

The geological environment of the Témiscamingue area is potentially favourable for the presence of Cu, Mo, Ni, Co, Ag and Au.  The goal of this study is to get more geochemical information about this territory and to put more emphasis on new mineral exploration.

Humus, groundwater and stream sediment samples were collected.
