Heavy Mineral Project, Gaspé region, Quebec 1984-1992
The Geological Survey of Canada has undertaken 6 heavy mineral surveys in 3 areas of the Appalachians of Quebec: Estrie-Beauce (4 surveys), the Lower St. Lawrence region (1 survey) and southeast Gaspé (1 survey). The aims of these studies are: to set in place a method for sampling and concentrating heavy minerals in such a way that permits economic recovery for geochemical analyses; to identify mineral assemblages favourable for the presence of mineralization; and, to increase knowledge of geochemical dispersal processes in the area.
The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open Files 1145, 1332, 1918, 2601 (Estrie-Beauce), 2036 (Lower Saint Lawrence) and 2788 (southeast Gaspé).
An orientation heavy mineral survey was also conducted in the auriferous lower segment of the Assemetquagan River in southwest Gaspé. The purpose was to establish a suitable sampling procedure to be used in a regional survey of the area and to gather data against which to compare the regional data. The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Current Research, Paper 86-1B.
