Project Cadillac, geochemical compilation of the north-west of Quebec, Abitibi-Temiscaming, Quebec, 1964-1987.

Project Description

Areas of geochemical interest can be defined as a given area with multiple sites having elevated values.  One of the goals of this project is to determine if geochemical signatures observed in groundwater and tills can also be found in the overlying soil.  In addition, another goal is to verify if geochemical dispersions in soils can truly be differentiated in regional soil surveys.

This approach allows determining whether the geochemical dispersions were formed despite the thick overburden found in northwestern Québec.  It also allows a judgement to be made on whether to develop a new reconnaissance method to inventory the vast land of northwestern Québec which is covered with glaciolacustrine sediments and to speculate on the mechanisms of geochemical migration in the glaciolacustrine clays.
