Uranium groundwater and stream sediment project, Maritimes and Saskatchewan, 1975-1976
Sampling of well waters was carried out in 1975 over parts of the Carboniferous Basin in southeastern New Brunswick, western Nova Scotia and on Prince Edward Island. Stream sediments were also collected on Prince Edward Island. The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open Files 340 (well water), 689 (digital version of OF 340) and 680 (stream sediments).
In 1976, well waters were collected in the Cypress Hills area, Saskatchewan. The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 678.
The purpose of the project was to test the effectiveness of groundwater geochemistry in delineating uranium occurrences and to evaluate the hydrogeochemical character of the regions. Stream sediments were collected to determine the general usefulness of such surveys for uranium prospecting and to evaluate the geochemical character of Prince Edward Island.
