Stream sediment, soil, heavy mineral sampling surveys, Gaspé peninsula, Quebec, 1964-1983.

Project Description

The goal of this study is to establish the mineral potential of the Gaspé Peninsula. The Department of Natural Resources of Quebec carried out many geochemical surveys:

In 1984, a compilation was published that included many surveys conducted in the Gaspé Peninsula (DV 84-04).

In 1985, a compilation was published in MM 84-01.  The analytical methods were :
