Central Saskatchewan lithogeochemistry survey, 1990

Project Description

In 1989, the Mineral Resources Division at the Geological Survey of Canada initiated an environmental geochemistry programme.  The main objective of this programme was to examine the relationships between the composition of rocks and soils and the health of plants, humans and animals.  This purpose of the lithogeochemistry project was to help establish a regional geochemical database of source rocks in central Saskatchewan by analyzing archived drill core chips from strata of Cretaceous age that subcrop beneath the Pleistocene cover.  The data are published in Geological Survey of Canada Open File 2491.
